It’s been a while…

So it’s been a while since our last post. For that we are sorry. However we have been busy bees working behind the scenes writing new songs and picking on Jon.

We really enjoyed our first gig of the year supporting Carmen at 2 Pigs Cheltenham, thanks to everyone who came along to listen! I would also like to take this time to publicly apologise to our bassist Harry, for telling everyone at the gig that he is gay and loves Chris Hemworth a little too much… he would like everyone to know that he has a really hot girlfriend (who is clearly in denial about her boyfriend ;P )… incase you haven’t guessed Harry has become one of us now and we’re so happy to have him onboard (why do we use this phrase we’re clearly not on a ship).

Lots of things are going on at Cynotia headquarters at the moment. Jon has started laying down the drum tracks for the second album and we’re getting excited to get it finished and released hopefully by the middle of this year.

We’re also very excited to be playing this Friday at the Old Bell, Gloucester for the Winter’s a Beach party. Also playing are the awesome Hired Guns, Last Night’s Victory and Joe Banyard. Hopefully it will be even better than the Tequila night last year. Although we feel like the tequila battle of the bands should be replaced by rum battles, we’ll see how it plays out.

We’re in the process of booking this years gigs and have some we will be announcing in the coming weeks so keep an eye on our events page for more info.

Hope to see your beautiful faces at the front :)

So we told you we had another announcement to make…
Please welcome our new bassist Harry Miller. We’re really excited to have him on board and cannot wait to gig with him. Our first gig with Harry will be 25th October at Sound Music Venue in Cheltenham, where we will be supporting the awesome Kill the Romantic! So come along and help us welcome Harry into Cynotia. We hope you’ll love him as much as we do… Cept don’t tell him we said that as it might go to his head and we already have to deal with Jon’s big head ;)

Much love and noise

We are extremely saddened to have to announce that our bassist Liv will be leaving Cynotia. Everything is fine and we love her very much still, she didn’t storm out the room after telling us she hates our guts and it’s a completely mutual decision. She felt she needed to leave due to other work, life and love commitments. Although we’re sad to see her go we wish her all the luck in the world. We’ve loved playing gigs with her and it’s truly been a pleasure to share the stage with such a wonderful person.

Cynotia will continue to write music and blast you with noise from any stage we can throw our kit onto. We are really looking forward to the coming months that will be filled with finishing off the upcoming mini album and hopefully lots of gigs in between.

We also have another announcement to make so watch this space!

Much love

Josh got a little over excited after our London gig this weekend…

Gigs, Fires and an EP…

Heya! Thought it was long overdue that we update you with the happenings of Cynotia.

Firstly we would like to say sorry to anyone who had planned to come and see us support Welcome Back Delta in Dudley the other week. There was a small problem of a fire breaking out right after our sound check (yeah we know it’s cos we’re just to darned hot! ;P ). But everything is ok and the gig is being rebooked as I write. Details to come!

(Josh and Liv looking totally suspect at the scene of the fire.)

We’re currently working on the new EP. Which we are planning on releasing before the end of summer if all goes to plan. We had a little delay on it due to me [Selina] getting a sinus infection. Making recording a little tricky. But we are back on it and hopefully can throw it your way really soon. Along with a load of Merch we are ordering this week!

Here’s a peak at a rough demo from the upcoming EP…

Me and Josh had the priveledge of appearing on the Stephen and Joe Show last week. Check out the video below to have a listen to another new song from the EP! (6 minutes in if you don’t want to listen to our wise words about Lara Croft.)

And lastly, tomorrow we head to London for a Bandwagon event at the Seabright Arms. We are really excited about it, but unfortunately Liv can’t make it! We do, however, have a good friend from Welcome Back Delta stepping in to play bass and pretend to be her. We’re hoping no one will notice the difference (I would like to point out that Joe is a Dave Grohl looking, Bearded man!).

Head to our gigs page for more info on our next lot of shows.

Hope to see your beautiful faces at our upcoming gigs!

Much love
