First, thanks to everybody thats been downloading and spreading news
about Cyanotic presents T3RM1N8T0R. We've had a huge swell of new fans
checking us out thanks to all you people who have been showing your
friends. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to
www.cyanotic-online.com and check the link to download Cyanotic's
rendition of the classic Terminator theme. More coming August 29th *in
honor of Judgment Day.
Onto album news, Its been nonstop work this past week at Glitch Mode HQ
in Chicago. Like, not even sleep sometimes, most times actually. I just
slept for the first time in 60 hours.
We've been mixing the new Cyanotic album, "The Medication Generation",
with our boy Jamie Duffy (Acumen Nation/DJ? Acucrack), whose expertise
in sound design and mixing is unrivaled. Jamie's done audio work for
some of the greats like Ministry, KMFDM and Front Line Assembly, and
we're proud to have the guy working with us for the album. We're all
very certain that we will continue to work together on a lot of upcoming
projects. There's been a really solid bond with Jamie and the Cyanotic
crew since we did our first tour together with Acumen Nation (in winter
'05), which has expanded over the years into True Bromance.
Like I was mentioning before, There have been some LONG nights. Check
the Twitter feeds @ twitter.com/cyanotic for some insight to the
hallucinatory states of mental fatigue we've been subjecting ourselves
to. We're like our own experiment in excess. And yeah, we've got
Twitter, but we had that shit back in '07, so "cram it with walnuts, ugly!"
*+5 to the biggest geek who knows the quote. Here's a hint: its the all
time best show on television and there's not a week where I don't watch
10 hours of said show.
So, album progress is zooming along, which is especially relieving since
the project pretty much came to a screeching halt in April, when we had
to switch recording studios, from NUM Studios in the Chicago 'burbs to
Glitch Mode HQ, AKA our 3 bedroom apartment in the city. That was a
really frutrasting time, like... pull my hair out, panic attack, full
bore depression time, so I had to distance myself from the album for
awhile, do some other work with music (like programming for 16 Volt,
Prude, Narthex and T3RM1N8T0R) and re-evaluate how we were going to
There's no more worry now. This album's as good as done. Its been
awhile, years for some of you, since you've heard new Cyanotic tracks.
We appreciate the patience on your part. We've been able to hone our
craft. "Med:Gen" will be the testament to that claim.
We're taking a week-long break from recording to do a mini-tour of
Canada with our canuck buddies Narthex. Its going to be a great warm up
for us, getting to be on a stage and blare our music REALLY loud,
something that seems like we haven't done in years, when in reality, its
just barely been half a year since our last tour. Tours have been almost
constant since 2005, at least 2 or 3 a year, and 2009 isn't going to be
