Legendary rock band THE CULT has inked a deal with Cooking Vinyl Records. The group, which took part in the “Love Live Tour” last year and also recorded a four-track release with Chris Goss (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MASTERS OF REALITY), is back in the studio with Goss recording a new album.
“I feel we have reached our zenith in terms of our writing and performing skills,” singer Ian Astbury recently said. “We intend to deliver on all levels.”
THE CULT’s “Capsule 2: New Blood Deep Cuts” featured new songs “Embers” and “Until The Light Takes Us”, live recordings of some of the band’s huge hits and an intimate look into THE CULT’s rehearsal space, with a never-before-seen warm-up performance of “Black Angel”.
Rather than revisit the traditional method of releasing a long form CD, the band pioneered a new way of providing material. Capsules span multiple media formats including vinyl, digital, USB, CD and DVD formats, and can be purchased at CultCapsuleStore.com.
THE CULT is Ian Astbury (vocals), Billy Duffy (guitar), Chris Wyse (bass), John Tempesta (drums) and Mike Dimkich (rhythm guitar).
