The Cult Returning To New Zealand In November

Monday 5th September, 2016 2:59PM

British rockers The Cult are coming to New Zealand in November for two shows to celebrate their latest album, Hidden City. The record closes thematic trilogy that began on 2007’s Born Into This, which was followed by 2012's Choice of Weapon.

Founding member and singer Ian Astbury says Hidden City is a metaphor for our spiritual lives, going on to add: “I find today’s gurus are trying to peddle some cure, product or insight as if it’s a new phenomenon. My place is to respond, not react, to observe, participate and share through words and music. There is no higher authority than the heart.” Here are the details for their New Zealand shows...

The Cult - founding singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy along with drummer John Tempesta, bassist Grant Fitzpatrick and keyboardist/rhythm guitarist Damon Fox – are on the road now in support of their latest full-length release, Hidden City.

Hidden City is The Cult’s 10th studio album and the final chapter of the band's trilogy of releases which began with 2007's Born Into This then 2012's Choice of Weapon. The Bob Rock-produced album has already produced several singles: “Dark Energy,” “Deeply Ordered Chaos,” “Hinterland” and “G O A T.”

“Hidden City is a metaphor for our spiritual lives, our intimate interior lives,” explains Astbury. “There is no higher authority than the heart.”

Of the new album, Mojo said it's “Some of the fiercest, nastiest, most powerful – and also starkly beautiful – music of their career...The album’s extraordinary howls of pain and anger, its dramatic apocalyptic visions and quiet interrogations of the meaning of life and death, align perfectly with the times.”
