The Cult: No New Album
Don’t expect a new album from The Cult.
Talking to American website www.metro.us, Cult singer Ian Astbury insisted:
“[The album is] a dead format; we don’t have the attention span for albums. The idea of going into a studio and spending a year-and-a-half creating a body of work which you put out as a body of work is pointless.”
Astbury also slammed people who love looking backwards:
“I fucking hate nostalgia. It fucking makes me sick.”
Despite this attitude, The Cult have been performing the whole of their classic 1985 album Love on tour – and they will do the same when they play in the UK shortly. The dates are Leeds Academy October 6, Edinburgh Picture House 7, Wolverhampton Civic Hall 8, London Royal Albert Hall 10.
