NYC-based rock band The Cringe have officially announced the release of their new studio album Blink Spot on October 16th. The band just gave fans their first look and listen of the debut single, “Anything You Say,” by premiering a lyric video with Billboard.com! Fans pre-ordering the new album at iTunes will receive an instant download of the song. View the band performing a stripped down live version of the track at Guitar World Acoustic Nation.
This summer, The Cringe have been supporting Mötley Crüe on “The Final Tour,” alongside special guest Alice Cooper. Reprising their support slot from the fall/winter leg of the Mötley Crüe tour, the band is wrapping their epic 27-date summer outing on September 6, before embarking on their next round of tour dates this fall and winter.
For their fifth full-length release, The Cringe took a decidedly fresh approach working with producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Trapt, Bullet For My Valentine, Hollywood Undead). “Working with Don was a real eye opening experience,” says The Cringe frontman John Cusimano. “In large part because of him, this is really our most cohesive sounding record lyrically as well as musically. He’s such a great engineer to begin so we have those great drum and guitar sounds, and the result was just big arena rock with lots of hooks and melody. He was really able to help us capture everything we’ve always wanted to do.”
