The Cult – Choice of Weapon

02 Feb

The Cult will release their new album Choice of Weapon in May 2012.

The title of the record reflects the fact that here we are, we have a choice to make right now. We can choose different modalities. We can either choose literal weapons, which, many people have picked up weapons in Libya, Egypt, Syria. Or picking up weapons and overtaking systems, physically, by force. In a more metaphorical sense, a weapon can be a camera, a weapon can be a pen, a weapon can be a statement, a verbal statement, a weapon can be an article of clothing. Tantric weapons are symbols they use in tantric rituals, like the dorje, which is an object that the shamanic figure is actually holding. The dorje being representative of a thunderbolt enlightenment, that moment of awakening, where you go, “Aha!” ” said singer Ian Astbury to Rolling Stone.

The line up of the band: Ian Astbury – vocals, Billy Duffy – guitar, Chris Wyse – bass, John Tempesta – drums, Mike Dimkich – touring guitar.
