THE CULT holds a significant place in musical history due to its pioneering use of post-punk, hard rock, and experimentalism, pushing boundaries and influencing countless bands across multiple genres. With their musical prowess, uncompromising attitude and captivating stage presence, they forged a distinct identity while charting new territory for bands to explore. From Duffy's formative, and influential years in the Manchester underground, to Astbury's innovative cultural festival "Gathering Of The Tribes", the duo has left an indelible mark on modern music, shaping its trajectory in profound ways.

The legendary British rockers have broken barriers thanks to their innovative sound experiments. They have sold millions of albums worldwide and quickly ascended through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status. They have an arsenal of hits including She Sells Sanctuary, Love Removal Machine, Fire Woman and Rain.

THE CULT – founding singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, with drummer John Tempesta and bassist Charlie Jones (Goldfrapp, Page and Plant) - are preparing to tour Europe and they’re at the peak of their powers.
