The Cult Reuniting With James Stevenson For Electric 13 Tour

(hennemusic) The Cult have announced that guitarist James Stevenson will be joining them on the band's upcoming Electric 13 tour. Stevenson, who previously toured with The Cult in the mid-90s, is replacing Mike Dimkich, who has left the band to play with Bad Religion.

The Electric 13 tour, which kicks off in San Diego on July 25, coincides with the release of the new 2-disc set, "Electric Peace", on July 30.

"We stared of rehearsals as a trio with me, Chris [Wyse, bass] and Johnny [Tempesta, drums] as we felt like we just wanted to get a bit of the rust off as we haven't played together for a while," says guitarist Billy Duffy.

"Obviously, 'Electric' is very much a two-guitar album, one rhythm and one lead, so with Mike moving on, we've decided to welcome back James Stevenson back into the fold to play rhythm for the tour. As a Cult alumni of 94/5, James was the obvious choice."

"The plan is to play the 'Electric' album in order then break and play a bunch of other stuff from the other eras, similar to the 'Love Live' tour from a few years back," added Duffy. more on this story
