The Cult Plot Digital Release for Prequel Album ‘Weapon of Choice’
The Cult returned earlier this year with their latest disc ‘Choice of Weapon’ and now the rockers are offering up an insider’s look into the writing and recording process for the album with a new digital release titled ‘Weapon of Choice.’
‘Weapon of Choice’ is designed to act as a prequel, offering fans an intimate and unique approach to their latest collection of songs from the beginning stages and throughout their development. Lead singer Ian Astbury weighed in on the new creative effort, explaining, “These songs were turned over and over, forged in long rehearsals and writing sessions and emanated from challenges both personal and professional.”
Astbury also compared ‘Weapon of Choice’ to ‘Choice of Weapon,’ saying, “In many ways it’s a different album to the one we released and reveals the foundations of ‘Choice of Weapon.’ We were able to close the doors and begin to explore spaces we had not been in for a while.”
‘Weapon of Choice’ will only be available for a two month period on iTunes beginning on Oct. 16. Fans can visit the new website created for the disc and download the free track ‘Twisted and Bleeding.’ The song can also be heard below.
