Today’s Inquistion features Anthony Sarnelli, vocalist and guitarist for Cynimatics.
Cynimatics is a four piece ska/pop punk hybrid band based out of Pittsburgh that have been together (except for a brief hiatus) since 2013. These guys blend third wave ska with pop punk for a unique sound with even more unique set of influences.
Q) Cynimatics just had a release show back in April for “A Life That’s Always The Same.” Are you planning on doing some more touring with that release, or are you focusing more on the potential album you’ve got in the works?
A) That’s funny… “A Life That’s Always The Same” was sort of just a stunt to gain some momentum again and put something fresh and tangible out there since we weren’t active for basically an entire year (2016-2017). I booked the release show with 3 of my friends’ bands (FlipSwitch, Rotations, and Lotus Kid) to basically just have a good time. We gave away the CDs for free there. I’m really grateful everything went well and that everyone seems to be digging the new EP. I can’t really say that we’ll ever tour for it.
The band is pretty much just a hobby. We do this for fun, and love just being local to Pittsburgh as well as releasing everything we do DIY. I’d love to travel, but with most of us just out of school and juggling priorities, it’s difficult.
