New York experimental art punk duo CINEMA CINEMA delivers a new single ahead of their impending fifth full-length, CCXMD, releasing the new song, “Cyclops,” through an exclusive premiere hosted by New Noise Magazine. The CCXMD album will see release through Nefarious Industries next week in conjunction with a run of tour dates across the Western US.
CINEMA CINEMA was established in 2008 by Brooklyn-born cousins Ev Gold (vocals/guitar) and Paul Claro (drums). They’ve been described as “experi-metal punks” by the Village Voice, “a jolt of adrenaline” by BrooklynVegan, and “feral and unrelenting” by Big Takeover.
Offers the band’s Ev Gold with the “Cyclops” premiere, “While reaching outside of our normal comfort-zone for the material on CCXMD, we couldn’t resist the urge to attach to one movement that had a somewhat familiar feeling. ‘Cyclops’ allowed us the free space to get lost in a groove, a place we like to be.”
Hear CINEMA CINEMA’s “Cyclops” early through New Noise Magazine at THIS LOCATION.
CINEMA CINEMA is busy booking tour dates surrounding the release of CCXMD, with a Western US tour which begins the week of the album’s release and takes the band through California, Nevada, and into Texas through the middle of November. Expect additional tour dates to be posted throughout the months ahead.
CINEMA CINEMA presents their fifth full-length, CCXMD. The duo takes a left turn from any previously recorded output, delving into ambient and atmospheric free-jazz territories, and inviting reed aficionado Matt Darriau – best known for his work with Grammy award-winning world-music ensemble The Klezmatics – to join the group for a collaborative, entirely improvised affair. Darriau had been a guest on the band’s 2017 LP Man Bites Dog, providing saxophone on a handful of tracks, and this time he brings more tools from his repertoire as the trio submerge themselves in the strange beauty of chaotic sound, found together in the moment.
