The Cult are premiering a video for “G.O.A.T”, the latest track from their 10th album, “Hidden City.”
Directed by Juan Azulay, the clip was shot in and Miami, FL, including Little Haiti, Liberty City and the Everglades.
“The film depicts amateur mixed-martial-arts fighter Orlando Friol alongside his trainer and mentor Diego de Vera of Miami's Knockout Zone Gym,” explains frontman Ian Astbury. “The song's title is an acronym for ‘Greatest Of All Time’. We were tapping into The Cult's identification as cultural outsiders, revealing the mystique of a lone fighter who, through discipline and integrity, rises up against all odds."
Produced by Bob Rock, “Hidden City” is billed as the third and final installment in a trilogy of recordings that began with 2007's “Born Into This” and “Choice Of Weapon.”
Rock previously worked with The Cult on 1989’s “Sonic Temple”, 1994’s self-titled album, 2001’s “Beyond Good And Evil” and 2012’s ”Choice Of Weapon.”
The Cult are currently playing dates on a spring North American tour that wraps up April 16 in Miami, FL.
