THE CRYPTICS Reveal their new song 'Time to Kill Time'

By Press Release / News / Sunday, 26 January 2020 07:20

In their 12 years together, The Cryptics have released 3 studio albums, toured internationally and directly supported some of their favourite artists.

This Dover, New Hampshire quartet came together in 2008 and has been out straight ever since. Whether touring Europe, Mexico, Cuba or direct supporting bands like Dead Kennedys, Guttermouth, and the Angry Samoans back on the homefront, the band has stayed busy in its dozen year stretch.
On their new song 'Time to Kill Time', vocalist Tino Valpa reveals: “Time To Kill Time” is a song about and against sluggishness and self-denial. It addresses something that hardly anyone speaks about or even notices: negative group mentality. When people get together they’d rather sit around and do nothing than do something productive or fun. The topic gets more depressing as we begin to imagine younger people in this situation.
Kids sitting around playing video games, eating garbage, taking drugs, afraid or embarrassed to say anything in a group. So few are saying “hey, let’s get up and go somewhere. Let’s play a game, let’s do something outside, let’s live.” They would rather go with the flow than actually do something productive or meaningful. And it’s not to say people shouldn’t relax once in a while. Nothing wrong with that. But the problem is it’s all aimless relaxation. It’s all phones. It’s all video games. It’s all unhealthy.
It blows my mind that anyone can claim boredom. There is so much in this world you can do no matter what you’re interested in. This song is a societal reality check and an SOS to the people that are active, productive, and jovial so they know that they are not alone. There are people who have goals. People who know what they want in this world. People who couldn’t dream of boredom. People who like to have fun. The song speaks for itself – who has the time to kill time?!”.
The band's upcoming record, 'Continuous New Behavior', will be out on January 31st.
