Decibel magazine and reunited progressive rock/metal band CYNIC have announced the inaugural Hall of Fame tour! Historic in every sense, the Hall of Fame tour, titled "Re-Traced / Re-Focused Live", will see the band perform Hall of Fame album "Focus" in its entirety, along with tracks from the group's lauded second album, "Traced in Air", and more. Direct support comes from progressive masters INTRONAUT and DYSRHYTHMIA.

"We're not only excited about this Hall Of Fame tour with Decibel, we're committed to giving CYNIC fans a unique and memorable concert experience unlike ever before," says CYNIC frontman/guitarist Paul Masvidal. "'Focus' will be performed in its entirety from start to finish, along with 'Traced in Air' and beyond. It's going to be a journey directly into CYNIC's pulsating, vibrant heart."

"Decibel is honored to have a band of the caliber and historical significance of CYNIC to headline our inaugural Hall of Fame tour," added Decibel editor-in-chief Albert Mudrian. "Their 'Focus' album has withstood the test of time like few other records, and I'm thrilled that death and progressive metal fans can experience its live power on this special tour."
