The Cult has recorded a new album, Choice of Weapon, the group’s first studio disc in five years. It’s set for release May 22.
The album was written by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, recorded in New York City, Los Angeles, the California high desert, and the band’s Witch Mountain studio. It features founding members Astbury on vocals and Duffy on guitars, with drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse. Longtime collaborator Bob Rock, who produced the Platinum-certified Sonic Temple, put the finishing touches on the foundations laid by co-producer Chris Goss.
