CD Description
One of the finest British rock acts to have enjoyed worldwide success over the last few decades, The Cult has wrapped up recording Choice of Weapon (COOKCD548), the group s first studio album in five years. Released on 21st May 2012 on their new UK label Cooking Vinyl, its 10 tracks reveal the band at its rawest and most visceral, encapsulating cinematic visions and themes of love, revolt, and redemption. Fans can get an early taster of the album from 2pm on Tuesday 31st January when the track Lucifer will be available as a free download through the band s website www.thecult.us. Details are being confirmed for a worldwide tour and will be announced soon. Choice of Weapon is the follow up to the critically-acclaimed 2007 release Born Into This that the UK s Mojo magazine called a wholehearted, utopian and irrefutably exciting record." Long-time Cult collaborator and producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bush) - who produced one of The Cult s most successful albums, the platinum-certified Sonic Temple - put the finishing touches on the foundations that were laid by co-producer Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E., Masters of Reality). The record was written by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, recorded in New York City, Los Angeles, the California high desert, and the band s Witch Mountain studios in the Hollywood Hills between July and December 2011. The new release features founding members Astbury on vocals and Duffy on guitars, with drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse. "We have had the opportunity to work with two of the most influential and talented producers in the world today, said Astbury. They pushed us beyond our comfort zone, and helped us craft Choice of Weapon. The album is aimed at the heart of The Cult's loyal following. It reflects the current discontent and destruction of our eco systems, the search for individual meaning against a tide of rampant materialism, narcissism and disconnected lives. We went deeper . . . we worked a bit harder on this record. We have great fans and they deserve our best, added Duffy, and I feel this is as strong as any album we have ever released.

Product Description
2CD SET : New 2012 album from the British-alt-goth rockers! Produced by Bob Rock & Chris Goss.

Second acts are hard enough to deliver successfully in the pantheon of hard rock, so it's surprising then that the Cult, now well into their third go-round, still give their audience exactly what they crave. The brawny licks by guitarist Billy Duffy, conspicuously toned down on 2007's 'Born into This', are back with a vengeance on Choice of Weapon, the band's ninth studio album. Duffy reaches deep into his grab bag of riffs to echo the classic "She Sells Sanctuary" on "The Wolf," then rains down elegance in "Life ] Death" and floors it on the powerful first single "For the Animals." Frontman Ian Astbury is resplendent in all his shamanistic glory, singing about his "wild Indian heart" ("Honey from a Knife") and doing his best Strange Days–era Jim Morrison ("A Pale Horse"). This is the longest the band has had the same lineup, which adds to the overall tightness from start to finish. Astbury infamously declared a few years ago that the Cult was finished making LPs, calling the album a dead format. Good thing he went back on that one — Choice of Weapon is a prime example of why the final nail hasn't yet been pounded into the coffin. And likely never will be.
This release also contains a bonus disc featuring tracks from the last two 'capsule' E.Ps released by the band in 2011.
