audio ‘stache: THE CULT Release New Studio Album “Choice of Weapon” (Cooking Vinyl/MRI/RED Distribution)

Iconic British rock band The Cult have released their new album Choice of Weapon on May 22nd via Cooking Vinyl/MRI, the group’s first studio album in five years!

Co-produced by long-time Cult collaborator and producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bush) and Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E.), the album was written by founding members Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy. Choice of Weapon is aimed at the heart of The Cult’s loyal following, and according to the members, it reflects their current discontent with the destruction of the world’s eco systems, search for individual meaning against a tide of rampant materialism, narcissism and disconnected lives.

Read a recent interview from Rolling Stone to get a look into the making of the album. You can also watch the band’s live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, here is “For The Animals,” “Wildflower” or watch the entire show!

“Offering catchy music with a twisted core, The Cult continue to thrive by sticking to their basic muse, and they are showing pretty much no signs of rust.” – Paste Magazine

Choice of Weapon is streaming week of release at AOL Spinner and is available digitally on iTunes, physically on Amazon and all other retailers. For tour, news and more information, follow The Cult online and visit www.thecult.us.

New album, Choice of Weapon, 5/22 through Cooking Vinyl/MRI!

The Cult are set to release Choice of Weapon, their ninth studio album, on May 22nd. The record is their first full-length work in five years, though the band has kept active by putting out “capsules” of new songs and live recordings in recent years. Co-produced by Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E.) and longtime collaborator Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith), Choice of Weapon was made in several studios, including the band’s own Witch Mountain as well as spots in New York City, Los Angeles and the California desert. Rolling Stone caught up with frontman Ian Astbury to talk about his inspiration for the new album, which addresses the many things he believes are poisoning contemporary culture.
