ARTISTDirect Exclusive Premiere – Weapon of Choice

The material on Weapon of Choice has not been previously released, and will be available exclusively on iTunes for two months only beginning today, October 16, 2012. The album will no longer be available anywhere starting on December 21, 2012.

The dynamic ten tracks on this release were recorded when The Cult returned to the studio in 2011 with producer Chris Goss and serve as a looking glass into the creative process and foundation behind Choice of Weapon.

These songs were turned over and over, forged in long rehearsals and writing sessions, and emanated from challenges both personal and professional,” said lead vocalist Ian Astbury. “We put our guts into this; Goss was able to create an environment where the songs were born through playing and turning over lyrics, through hard work and intense sessionsThese songs have an integrity and rawness of their own. In many ways it’s a different album to the one we released and reveals the foundations of Choice of Weapon. We were able to close the doors and begin to explore spaces we had not been in for a while.”
