The Cult to play Coachella

The Cult have confirmed that they will perform twice at the 2014 edition of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival this spring.

The two-weekend event will be held at the Empire Polo Club in India, California April 11-13 and April 18-20.

The Cult will play sets on Friday, April 11 and Friday, April 18.

Coachella tickets go on sale this Friday, January 10 at 10AM PST.

The Cult spent 20134 on the road playing the Electric 13 world tour, which coincided with the release of the 2-disc set, “Electric Peace.”

The collection pairs 1987’s “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.”
