After the massive success of the ‘Love Live’ world tour, it is now time for the band to bring their UK fans New Blood and Deeper Cuts, a set list that will consist of the band’s incredible new material such as ‘Every Man and Woman Is A Star’, ‘Embers’ and debuting previously unrecorded material, as well as tracks that have never/rarely been played. On returning to the UK, Ian Astbury has the following to add:
‘We want to continue the long love affair with our UK audience and share some new music as well as some deeper cuts. The band is on fire right now.’
The band have just released the first of their recent recordings on the newly formatted ‘capsule’ collection. Rather than revisit the traditional method of releasing a long-form CD, the ‘capsule’ is a collection of not just new music, but film, art and fashion. It will consist of new music ‘Every Man and Woman Is A Star’ and ‘Siberia’; live recordings from the recent internationally sold-out ‘Love Live’ tour, as well as short film ‘A Prelude to Ruins’ (directed by Ian Astbury & Rick Rogers).
The Cult are an English rock band, formed in 1983. They gained a dedicated following in Britain in the mid 1980s as a post-punk and gothic rock band with singles such as “She Sells Sanctuary”, before breaking mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as “Love Removal Machine”. The band fuses a “heavy metal revivalist” sound with the “pseudo-mysticism … of The Doors, the guitar-orchestrations of Led Zeppelin, and the three-chord crunch of AC/DC, while adding touches of post-punk goth rock”.
