The Cult expand summer tour

The Cult have expanded their summer tour of North America with the addition of several shows in August.

The new dates follow previously announced concerts in July that will see the band perform along the Canadian and US west coast.

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.”
