The Cult are hitting the road again in North America this July. The trek kicks off on July 8 in St. Paul, MN and wraps up on July 30 in Orilla, ON. Special guests for the tour will be Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Zola Jesus. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 13 HERE.

The Cult are currently working on a new album. Their last studio effort was 2016’s Hidden City (Cooking Vinyl).

In a recent interview with Tone-Talk, guitarist Billy Duffy gave an update on the band’s progress in the studio.

“We’ve been digging away at [new album] over the last year and a half,” Billy said. “We’re working with a great young English producer called Tom Dalgety. And, obviously, with the circumstances of the last year or so, it’s been a little challenging. But we’re making some progress.

The philosophy in The Cult camp, really, is about quality, not quantity,” Duffy continued. “We don’t just need to keep putting out records for the sake of it. Without being ridiculous, we wanna, within a certain realistic time frame, make sure that the records that we put out are as good as they can be. So sometimes that takes a bit longer. And that’s kind of where we’re at

We’re well into the process of the new Cult album.”

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club released their eighth studio album Wrong Creatures back in 2018. It featured the hit single “Little Thing Gone Wild.” In 2021, BRMC member Robert Levon Been scored the film The Card Counter.

Zola Jesus is releasing her sixth studio album Arkhon on June 24 via Sacred Bones. It is her first studio outing in nearly five years. The lead single “Lost” is streaming now.
