Cynic’s Paul Masvidal Reveals Sean Malone’s Cause of Death in Touching Tribute

Longtime drummer Sean Reinert, who exited Cynic in 2017, passed away in January of 2020, and the band’s on-again-off-again bassist Sean Malone, who was active in the band when he died, passed in December.

Cynic’s Paul Masvidal Promises New Album in 2021, Reflects on Two Band Member Deaths This Year

2020 has been a rough year for everyone this side of Jeff Bezos, who continues to reap untold rewards from the ashes of the Covid-ravaged dead, but it’s been especially heartbreaking for Cynic mastermind Paul Masvidal, who lost two key members of his band in the span of 11 months: longtime drummer Sean Reinert, who died in January at only 48 years old, and on-again-off-again bassist Sean Malone, who passed earlier this month at just 50. No cause of death for either has been publicly revealed, although Reinert’s untimely departure received additional attention when his request for organ donation was denied because of his sexual orientation.
