The Cult add San Diego date to US tour

The Cult have added an April 5th date at Humphrey’s in San Diego to their spring US tour.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, February 14.

The San Diego stop is one of two warm-up dates the band are playing before they appear at the Coachella festival in Indio, CA on April 11 and April 18; they’re also scheduled to perform at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco on April 3.

The Cult spent 2013 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.”
