The Cult Complete Recording Sessions For New Album 'Choice Of Weapon' - World Tour On The Way!

The Cult, one of the finest British rock acts, has wrapped-up recording ‘Choice of Weapon’, the group’s first studio album in five years.

Released on 21st May, 'Choice Of Weapon' and it's 10 tracks reveal the band at its rawest and most visceral, with themes of love, revolt, and redemption. Fans can get an early taster of the album with the track ‘Lucifer’ available as a free download through the band’s website www.thecult.us. Details are being confirmed for a worldwide tour and will be announced soon!
‘Choice of Weapon’ is the follow up to the critically-acclaimed 2007 release ‘Born Into This’. Long-time Cult collaborator and producer Bob Rock (who has worked with the likes of Metallica and Bush) put the finishing touches on the foundations that were laid by co-producer Chris Goss (who has worked with Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E. and Masters of Reality).
The record was written by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, and recorded in the US between July and December 2011. The new release features founding members Astbury on vocals and Duffy on guitars, with drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse. 

"We have had the opportunity to work with two of the most influential and talented producers in the world today,” said Astbury. “They pushed us beyond our comfort zone, and helped us craft ‘Choice of Weapon.’”
“We went deeper...we worked a bit harder on this record. We have great fans and they deserve our best,” added Duffy, “and I feel this is as strong as any album we have ever released.”
The album is released as a special edition fan pack on May 14th, followed by digital and double vinyl on May 21st and the CD and deluxe CD’s on June 4th.  

'Choice Of Weapon' track-listing is as follows:
Honey from a Knife

Does the world need a new Andrew W.K. album in 2018? If your answer to that question is a curt ‘no’, then you are turning your nose up at the concept of fun itself. Sure, he’s largely remembered for songs he released almost 20 years ago, but at this point he is more than just a musician.
The Temperance Movement - A Deeper Cut (Album Review)
Fri 23 Feb 2018
There was a time in rock ‘n’ roll’s glorious history when a band’s third album was seen as a pivotal moment, one that would either catapult them to stardom or sound their death knell. In today’s climate the chance of any rock act achieving huge success seems about as likely as Cristiano Ronaldo voluntarily removing all the mirrors from his mansion. Yet fans have never given up hope that maybe, just maybe, a group will emerge to buck the trend.
