A night filled with their greatest hits and songs from their new album 'Under the Midnight Sun'
Supporting the global release of their critically-acclaimed album “Under the Midnight Sun,” The Cult will soon connect with European fans via a major summer tour which they will kick off at the AB! It will be a night filled with their greatest hits and songs from their new album.
As The Cult return to the stage to launch the next chapter of “Under The Midnight Sun,” Astbury hopes that the album’s new dimensions provoke reactions both primal and sublime in listeners’ consciousness - echoing what he himself experienced during its creation.
“At the core of it all, music contains the vibrational frequency of how we once communicated before we could even speak,” Astbury says. “Bird songs, animal calls, string theory, quantum physics, psychedelics… The record ultimately becomes about discovering and celebrating anew the beauty from those strangely natural moments that surround and inspire us.”
Produced by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood), the album vividly demonstrates how The Cult’s co-founding members, Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, continue to push further into their esoteric strengths on their 11th album. Flanked by Duffy’s atmospheric riffs and incandescent solos, Astbury reaches new heights of sinewy vulnerability in his vocal presence – bolstering the album’s stylistic alchemy with a lyrical perspective as evocative and mystical as the paradox in the album’s title. Accompanying the tour announcement, is the release of The Cult’s fiery, expressionistic new video for “Vendetta X”, the third single from the album, which you can watch here.
