Cynic have been at an impasse with their career since the band split into separate factions in 2015 with both co-founders Paul Masvidal and drummer Sean Reinert claiming rights in the split. The band have now announced a settlement where Reinert has left the band officially, and Masvidal will continue
Reinert posted to Facebook
“Today I post with a heavy heart, but also a lightened spirit. A settlement has been reached between Paul and I in regards to CYNIC. I am unable to disclose any of the details regarding this agreement but I am at peace with the arrangement. I am going to step aside from CYNIC and continue with my personal projects – Paul is going to continue with CYNIC and his.
I want to take this last Facebook post as an opportunity to humbly thank all of the musicians, engineers, technicians, companies, booking agents, managers, crew, press, labels and friends that I’ve worked with (and will likely continue to) over this past 30-year span.
Most of all – I would like to thank the fans, who to this day still blow me away with their loyalty and love. You’ve always been the inspiration and the fuel for the machine!
To Paul, I sincerely wish him and the musicians he hires nothing but the best.
