VIDEO: The Cult kick off Electric 13 tour in San Diego

The Cult kicked of their Electric 13 tour on Thursday at the House Of Blues in San Diego, and video from the show has surfaced.

The tour sees The Cult performing its 1987 album "Electric", in its entirety, and a second set featuring tracks from the band’s career.

The tour coincides with the July 30 release of the 2-disc set, “Electric Peace.”

The collection pairs “Electric” with the group’s abandoned "Peace" album, a project The Cult recorded as the follow-up to 1985’s “Love.” After recording the full album with producer Steve Brown, the group weren't happy with the final results, which seemed too polished.

The Cult then contacted producer Rick Rubin to remix the lead track, "Love Removal Machine," and Rubin agreed, but only on condition that the track was entirely re-recorded. Thrilled with the results of the Rubin sessions, the band abandoned the original "Peace" recordings and re-recorded the entire album in New York with him, resulting in “Electric.”
