The Cult Add New Fall Dates To North American Tour

On October 7 The Cult will release their new album, Under The Midnight Sun, via Black Hill Records. The band are currently in the midst of a midwest and east coast tour, previewing some of the songs from the album including the current single “Give Me Mercy”. Today they announce the addition of fall tour dates to the schedule with the new run kicking off September 15 in Vancouver, BC at the Hard Rock Casino and concluding at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on October 9 with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club as the main support for that show. Tickets for all shows are available here with the exception of the LA’s’ Greek Theatre which go on-sale this Thursday, July 28th @ 10 AM local time.

Like the rest of Under The Midnight Sun, “Give Me Mercy”was produced by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood).




As The Cult are now returning to performing live and sharing Under the Midnight Sun, Astbury hopes that the record connects to something deep within and subconscious in their listeners—something Astbury found within himself when given the moment to look for it. “At the core of it all, music contains the vibrational frequency of how we once communicated before we could even speak,” he says. “Bird songs, animal calls, string theory, quantum physics, psychedelics. The record ultimately is about finding and uniting beauty in those strangely natural moments.”
