Every so often, a band comes along that demonstrates such a vicious talent and dedication that it eclipses everything around it – Cynergy 67 is just such a band. Hailing from Wisconsin, the trio of VX-5, Evo-1, and Mundayne represent a 21st century underground success story, unleashing a furious assault of intense electo/rock. From humble beginnings enduring the lows of numerous lineup changes and financial strain, Cynergy 67 continues to evolve into a powerhouse act that has seen the band share the stage with the heaviest hitters in the underground and alternative music scenes.
Creating a hybrid fusion of industrial, techno, and rock, the band first made waves with the New Machine EP on Radio.Active.Music in 2005. Already possessing a strong live presence, the Cynergy 67 show began to grow in scope as they band opened for such acts as Orgy, Powerman 5000, Godhead, Deadstar Assembly, and Celldweller. Visualize a veritable cyberpunk cornucopia – black lights, glow sticks, gas masks, with the music pulsating through the speakers with pounding dance rhythms, acerbic synthesized sequences, and guttural guitars, topped off by aggressive yet emotive vocals. Such impressive displays of audio/visual stimulation helped the band to garner several endorsements from various clothing and equipment companies. These early performances were captured on the band’s first DVD release, Mechanical Failure of the Soul.
In the following years, Cynergy 67 stepped up its A-game, releasing the Project: Assimilation album in 2009 with several remix singles in cooperation with FiXT Music as well as the Regeneration DVD in 2010, exhibiting an improved scale of production and performance to put them on par with the most polished acts in the mainstream. All the while, the band has continued to evolve their live presentation to incorporate video accompaniment, expansive lighting, and eventually making good on their provocative and cyberotic sound with the inclusion of live dancers.
In 2011, Cynergy 67 held the distinction of being the first US band to sign to LektroLand and Sonic Angel, the new label founded by Lords of Acid’s Praga Khan, with a new full-length album entitled SINthesize due in 2012 as a CD/DVD package. Hitting the road with ZooG Von Rock – of Australian electro/punk pioneers Angelspit – on the Circus of Sin tour promises to unleash a furious onslaught of industrialized electro/rock few can accomplish. To see a Cynergy 67 show is to step into a tantalizingly sensual futuristic world – William Gibson and Philip K. Dick sharing drinks at a black lit bar with an android bartender, cybernetic go-go performers dancing for your pleasure in a smoky room, static-distorted images of roborotic delight, and Cynergy 67’s melodic, energetic, and hypersexual brand of electro/rock is your soundtrack, guaranteed to make your circuit boards wet for more!
