The Cult is joining Guns N’ Roses for a handful of shows this summer.

The newly announced dates are part of the band’s current “Alive In The Hidden City: North America 2016 Tour.”  The dates in question are July 27th in Atlanta, Georgia, July 29th in Orlando, Florida, July 31st in New Orleans, LA, and August 3rd in Arlington, Texas.  The dates, and the band’s headlining shows, are in support of the band’s latest full-length studio recording Hidden City, its tenth full-length studio recording.  The album was released February 16th, 2016.  It completes the band’s trilogy of albums that began in 2007 with Born Into This and continued in 2012 with Choice of Weapon.  It has already generated three singles: ‘Hinterland,’ ‘Dark Energy,’ and ‘Deeply Ordered Chaos.’

Front man and founding member Ian Astbury discussed the album’s lead single ‘Hinterland’ in a recent interview with  He noted of the single, “‘Hinterland’ is a place both real and imagined, a hidden city symbolic of a new Rome. Through the eyes of several witnesses we observe a young woman as she realizes her enlightened self in a dystopian dream world. ‘Hinterland’ is filled with symbolism, reflecting a new aeon in the shift of human consciousness as we realign with our planet’s natural rhythms.”

The videos for ‘Hinterland,’ and ‘Deeply Ordered Chaos’ can be viewed online now along with the video for ‘G.O.A.T.’  The band’s current tour schedule is noted below.
