DEATH CULT 8323
Death Cult returns. The storied post-punk progenitor to The Cult, touring venues where they made their live debut as a band. The evening, while centered around Death Cult and their eponymous EPs, will boast a setlist that spans the three phases of the band, from Southern Death Cult to Death Cult, and The Cult’s first two albums, ‘Dreamtime’ (1984) and ‘Love’ (1985).
Southern Death Cult formed in 1981, releasing their sole, self-titled album posthumously in 1983. That same year, Death Cult formed, with Astbury joining forces with Duffy for a musical partnership that has endured for 40-plus years. The band released two 12-inches that same year, one being the ‘Death Cult’ EP, which were subsequently combined and released as a CD. Death Cult is a vital transmission from the generation of Shamanic post-punk gothic futurists.
Death Cult became The Cult in 1984. Releasing ‘Dreamtime’ that same year and going on to experience a career that has seen the release of 11 full-length albums, as well as numerous international and US Gold and Platinum certifications.
