The Cult Go ‘Electric’ for 2013 World Tour

The Cult Electric 13

The Cult are dipping into their history this year, choosing to perform the classic 1987 release ‘Electric’ in its entirety as part of their upcoming tour. The trek, dubbed ‘Electric 13,’ will kick off July 25 in San Diego and mostly centers on North American tour stops before jetting over to the U.K. in October.

Frontman Ian Astbury says, “The Cult’s life blood has always been playing live. We are between albums and decided to continue the momentum created by [our latest album] ‘Choice of Weapon,’ stay in people’s hearts and minds. As ‘Love’ Live was such an incredible experience, we have decided that performing the ‘Electric’ album, an event that has been demanded by our fans and followers at the perfect live set to play in 2013.”

The disc features such notable standouts as ‘Love Removal Machine,’ ‘Wild Flower’ and ‘Lil’ Devil’ and it saw a transformation for the band to a more raw, rocked out sound with Rick Rubin producing the effort. The group has never performed the disc in its entirety. However, it should be noted that the show will not be limited to just the ‘Electric’ album, as the group is planning a second set at shows that will revolve around the rest of their catalog.
