Purveyors of Nü York Metal, JYNX, have returned with the release of their genre-blending new single “Cuchifrito” - teaming up with digital artist Frankie “Skumbagovich” Shnaidman (Terrifier 2) for the acid-trip like animated music video, which can be seen here.
For the song, JYNX once again enlisted the help of producer Zach Jones (Zero 9:36, Chelsea Grin) along with Veil of Maya guitarist Marc Okubo to assist with the writing process. Explaining how the writing collaboration came about, guitarist Jerry DeLorenzo stated
“The process was a fun one, we normally go in knowing what we want out of a session, but with no pre-recorded material so it all flows naturally. When we laid out where we wanted this song to go, Zach mentioned the idea of getting Marc involved and it felt like a no brainer. We clicked pretty instantly and were able to crank out the instrumental in just a few hours.”
Speaking on the lyrics to the song, vocalist Tommy Roulette added
“I typically try to keep our lyrics on a positive note, but I needed to get shit off my chest this time. Over the past few years while working in NYC nightlife, I’ve happened to lose a lot of friends to drugs, especially because of the recent fentanyl crisis. It was overwhelming and put me in a very negative space. I’m not telling anyone how to live their lives, but if you do partake, fentanyl test strips can save a life. Be safe out there.”
