THE CULT will release its tenth album, “Hidden City”, on February 5, 2016 via Cooking Vinyl. The follow-up to 2012’s “Choice Of Weapon” was written by singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy and was produced by Bob Rock, who has previously worked with METALLICA and MÖTLEY CRÜE.
“Hidden City” is described as the final part of a trilogy that began with the 2007 album “Born Into This”.
Speaking about the new CD, Astbury says: “I find today’s gurus are trying to peddle some cure, product or insight as if it’s a new phenomenon. My place is to respond, not react, to observe, participate and share through words and music. There is no higher authority than the heart.”

01. Dark Energy
02. No Love Lost
03. Dance The Night
