The Cult are celebrating the he 30th anniversary of the band’s multi-platinum, game-changing album ‘Sonic Temple’. The band has announced that they will perform a special show on June 15 The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Prayers, Zola Jesus, and Vowws, will be the support performers.
‘Sonic Temple’ will be reissued in a 30th anniversary edition by Beggars Banquet Records (exact release date to be announced). “Sonic Temple” features the singles “Fire Woman”, “Edie (Ciao Baby)”, “Sweet Soul Sister” and “Sun King”.
“We’ve never thrown a party like this before,” says Astbury. “We want to celebrate the band’s DNA and especially the album ‘Sonic Temple’ as this year Beggars Banquet are planning a substantial reissue project.”
Astbury says: “L.A. has always been a muse since I was very young with the stories and myths spun out through film, literature, poetry, art and music that I was attracted to. It was and still is a city of refuge for British musicians; the lifestyle suited our needs and continues to do so. Hearing a wild coyote or seeing the snow-capped mountain evokes a deep sense of awe and transcendence primal and modern — a cultural multi-faceted diamond that inspires and confounds; it’s always changing, never staying still.”
