'CYCLS' is the 9th Mental Overdrive album (that is if you count in the 'silent' album 'Unplugged', the live-only album 'ANTI-LBM', and 'The Phuture that never happened' - the Smalltown Supersound compilation of EP's initially released through R&S Records - which you should), and were initially made available here on Bandcamp as a kind of 'advent calendar' for the 'Mayan end date' of December 21st 2012; a new track was posted each Monday in the weeks counting down to what some believed was to be the end of the world.

Having previously lived through the 'Year 2k-scare', 'The Rapture', and numerous other 'end-dates' launched by small indie purveyors of the truth, the album title suggest that there is no absolute deadline to this existence, no matter how much some people seems to require one, but rather that everything runs in cycles - like good vinyl records.

The album is released through Love OD Communications, and a special CD version will also be available from the Love OD mailorder page.

CYCLS is released on December 21st 2013 - the one year anniversary of the end of the world.
