From Weekend Two at Coachella, Rolling Stone writes:
“Best Messiahs: The Cult”

“When the Cult stepped onstage Friday night, singer Ian Astbury immediately dedicated their set to Kimchi Truong, 24, a fan who died of a drug overdose while at the previous weekend's festival. "Take care of each other. Stay hydrated," Astbury insisted, wearing dark shades. "We're at the dawn of a new enlightenment."

“At least since the band's hitmaking days in the Eighties, Astbury has been a believer in rock & roll as a messianic calling, and his warnings and proclamations on society and nature continue to fuel the band's music and attitude. It's the thread that connected the music of their second Coachella set, from "She Sells Sanctuary" to songs from 2012's Choice of Weapon. Guitarist and longtime musical partner Billy Duffy provided the grinding, swirling riffs, as they shared a stage blanketed in smoke and flashing lights.”

Born in 1984 out of the ashes of the UK post-punk scene, The Cult evolved to become one of the most influential and controversial rock bands. The band is currently working on its follow up to 2012’s Choice of Weapon.
