Hello Friends,

It is with great regret that we feel it necessary to let you all know long time vocalist, Cal Hughes, will not be fulfilling upcoming tour commitments and furthermore continuing with the band. This has come as a sudden shock to all of us but Cal has relinquished his vocal duties from the band due to personal
reasons.

However, after an extensive search we’re thrilled to announce that we would like to welcome Mares Refaeleda to Synthetic Breed. Mares brings an inspiring, fresh and new approach to Synthetic Breed and we’re sure she will win your approval when you see us live!

For Melbourne fans, your first opportunity to see Mares in action will be Friday July 8th at the Central Club in Richmond. Don’t forget the ‘Perpetual Motion Machine Australian Tour’ begins
on July 1st at the Basement in Canberra.

Check out www.syntheticbreed.com or www.facebook.com/syntheticbreed for all the tour details!

Much more exciting news to come…

See you all on the road!!!
Vincent, Daniel, Luke and Mares!

No, different bands. Sybreed are from Geneva, Swiss, Synthetic Breed are from Australia. If I remember right, Sybreed once wanted to call themselves Synthetic Breed but changed that plan due to the fact that this name already existed.

Well, at the end of the day you'll want a band name that doesn't only differenciate you in the alphabetical order of the store shelves but also one that expresses what your music sounds like or stands for.
For the music Sybreed play, "Sybreed" just is a logical choice. They're dedicated to a sound oscillating between synthetic and organic. Also, it is spoken "Cybreed" (just with the softer sound of an "S" at the beginning) which adds the "Cyber" aspect of their huge Electronica influence into the sound of their name.

So, it may be close to "Synthetic Breed" but it is still distinctive, easily memorable and expresses their style of music to a large extent. No better choice, if you ask me.

Plus: If you consider their name before Ben's entrance as singer was "Rain", "Sybreed" is a huge stepforward in distinctiveness. Laughing out loud

Rest assured, Sybreed and Synthetic Breed are certainly two very different bands!

Will she be doing harsh vocals? Because that stuff is frightening and attractive at the same time. XD
