The Cult Play Concert In A Living Room
Part of the program's regular "Strombo Sessions" series, the band played live at Stroumboulopoulos' downtown Toronto home for the program as they tour in support of their latest album, "Hidden City."
The 5-song set included classics like "Wild Flower", "Horse Nation" and "She Sells Sanctuary", and a pair of new tracks "Deeply Ordered Chaos" and "G.O.A.T."
The Cult also spoke with the host about the roots element of the band and the inspirations of the modern world. "I think because we grew up as blue collar kids, we've always been immersed in street culture and kept and ear to the ground in that way," explained frontman Ian Astbury. "Always paying attention to evolving new sounds, directions, fashion and music. The popular culture conversation, social media, that's part of it, but then actually physically going places - it doesn't matter, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, New York, LA, TO - in 'The Six'!
"Just pay attention and staying with it. I mean, we're hardly rubes at this point. We're not trying to repeat ourselves or do a carbon copy or pastiche. And it doesn't work that way." Check out the video here.
