I saw the Cult several years ago at Hampton Beach Casino in New Hampshire during their tour promoting the CD, Beyond Good and Evil. The music on that CD was a wild, magical ride staying true to the Cult’s energetically spirited music. From the driving beat of American Gothic, to the hypnotic Rise, and the bad ass, hard hitting, spellbinding Ashes and Ghosts. The Cult’s music has always left an indelible impression.
It’s been a while since that performance but I still look back on that magical night with enthusiasm, much fondness and a smile. The Cult performed an acoustic version of a song rarely ever played in concert and it was (still is) one of my favorites - Star. To say I was ecstatic is an understatement. I was over the full moon that shone brightly in the evening sky and laid its spotlight against the dark ocean water that night.
On May 22nd The Cult will release their new CD, Weapon of Choice and kick-off a long-awaited tour starting May 25th in San Diego, CA and ending June 22nd in Tempe, AZ. Along the way they will perform at Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach, NH as well as the House of Blues in Boston, MA. I for one cannot wait for the release of the CD and the tour. The Cult’s going to rock and I'll be there shamanically dancing with my war paint on and my weapon of choice - music.
