The band has been the endorser of Suzuki for 2 consecutive years since 2012. Through the Suzuki Invasion tour, they have been performing their hits in different parts of the country.
6cyclemind comes from the 5 members plus their manager, Darwin Hernandez of Soupstar Entertainment as the 6th person. Collectively, they all contribute to the composing, arranging and brainstorming, which is a continuous cycle in their creation of music, hence 6cyclemind. Carlos "Chuck" Isidro was the former lead guitarist for Afterimage. When Afterimage disbanded, Isidro, worked in the recording company. During his stay, he signed up a group managed by Darwin Hernandez where he met Ryan Sarmiento, Roberto Cañamo, Gilbert "Gibbz" Magat and Rhoneil "Ney" Dimaculangan. Both Isidro and Hernandez agreed and chose to form a band with them, which became 6cyclemind.
