The Cult Announce Special Sonic Temple Anniversary Show
The Cult have announced that they will staging a special show at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for a special show to celebrate the 30th anniversary for their "Sonic Temple" album.
Frontman Ian Astbury had the following to say about the June 15th concert, "We've never thrown a party like this before. "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.
"Prayers and Vowws have both toured with us and the timing felt right for bringing this group of artists together. In many ways I feel these artists are kindred spirits, along with Zola Jesus--outsiders who are unique and deeply romantic in a time of material posturing and disconnect. They are devoted to their craft; I identify with their honesty in performance and fearlessness and originality in their creativity. They are truly inspired and in harmony with now."
"I'm honored that The Cult gets to walk the same stage as such legends in a beautiful historic outdoor setting." He adds: "We feel outdoor venues seem to warrant a longer show as folks like to attend early and stay late so to that end we have expanded the bill the make it a truly special night of diverse music."
