The Cult – The Academy, Dublin

Following the success of their recent European tour, which included several outstanding festival appearances, The Cult have today announced that they will be returning to Dublin on June 14, 2011 for an intimate show at The Academy. This will come as unbelievable news for fans of The Cult who will be able to witness the band live and up close at the Middle Abbey Street venue.

Tickets priced €42.50 inclusive of booking fee go on sale this Friday 18th February at 9am.

The Cult have recently released the first of their recent recordings on the newly formatted ‘capsule’ collection. Rather than revisit the traditional method of releasing a long-form CD, the “capsule” is a collection of not just new music, but film, art and fashion. It will consist of new music ‘Every Man and Woman Is A Star’ and ‘Siberia’; live recordings from the recent internationally sold-out ‘Love Live’ tour, as well as short film ‘A Prelude to Ruins’ (directed by Ian Astbury& Rick Rogers). The capsule will be available in several formats including MP3 CD / DVD (DUAL DISC) and 12″ Vinyl in limited quantities for a limited time. The first song ‘Every Man and Woman Is A Star’ was debuted in the UK and released as an iTunes exclusive.

The latest recordings were guided by legendary producer Chris Goss (Unkle, Queens of the Stone Age, Too Many DJ’s, Masters of Reality). A mixture of violent guitars, emotive vocal performances with high melody and driving beats.

The Cult will be playing a set that spans their entire career and will feature live performances of their brand new material also. On returning to Dublin, vocalist Ian Astbury had the following to say:

‘We want to share some new music as well as some deeper cuts. The band is on fire right now.’
