The British gothic rockers THE CULT is going to release their tenth studio album "Hidden City" on February 5, 2016. It will be the final part of a trilogy that began with "Born into This" (2007) and the second was "Choice of Weapon" (2012) and the band's first album with bassist Grant Fitzpatrick, making it THE CULTs first album since their 1994 self-titled album not to feature Chris Wyse. It also marks the fifth time Bob Rock had produced a CULT album.
They gained a dedicated following in the UK in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band with singles such as "She Sells Sanctuary", before breaking mainstream in the US in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as "Love Removal Machine" and "Fire Woman". The band fuse a "heavy metal revivalist" sound with the "pseudo-mysticism ... of the DOORS and the guitar-orchestrations of LED ZEPPELIN ... while adding touches of post-punk goth rock". Since their earliest form in Bradford during 1981, the band have had various line-ups; the longest-serving members are vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, the band's two songwriters.
"Hidden City" is available for pre-order now on Limited Edition Blood Archive Edition White 180gm Double Vinyl, Black 180gm Double Vinyl, CD & Digital from the below:
