The Cult expand Electric 13 tour

The Cult have added a series of November European dates to their Electric 13 tour, a trek which will see the band perform their 1987 album, “Electric,” in its entirety for the first time.

The shows will include two sets: “Electric” in one, with a second featuring tracks from the band’s catalog.

"The Cult's life blood has always been playing live, we are between albums and decided to continue the momentum created by Choice Of Weapon, stay in people's hearts and minds,” explains singer Ian Astbury. “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 as the perfect live set to play in 2013."

The Electric 13 tour will open July 25 in San Diego.

The band’s third album, “Electric” marked a significant style change in The Cult’s sound, moving away from the Goth-influence of its earlier releases while heading straight into hard rock territory. The project featured songs like “Love Removal Machine,” “Wild Flower” and “Lil’ Devil.”
