Never miss another 'The Cult' show
Electric 13: The Cult + Bo Ningen
The Cult will be performing 'Electric', raw and unfiltered and in it's entirety on a UK headline tour in 2013.
In 1987, The Cult released 'Electric', an album of stylistic change that aimed the band straight at the heart of the rock market. Recorded in New York City at the legendary Electric Ladyland studios and filled with the energy of the dirty NYC streets, together with a young producer named Rick Rubin, who resonated more with the hip hop world of The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and Public Enemy; the band delivered an recording that has gone on to become one of their most successful and influential albums, and as a follow up to 'Love', kicked the door wide open to a passionate new audience.
The live show will also include a second set pulling from the band's eight other studio albums.

This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
A band who've truly lived up to their name with their constant esotericism, existing just outside the mainstream since the '80s, when the band was conceived as Death Cult by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy. Their loyal following has largely been to do with the marriage of goth-rock and heavy metal, combining emotion and spirituality with complex, unpredictable and driving guitar lines.
