The Cult’s ‘Choice of Weapon’ off to a huge start on the charts

 

The Cult has a lot of reason to be very happy today.  The band’s new album has debuted at #34 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.  That’s only part of the good news for the band.  The album has taken off all over the place.  It has debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Hard Rock chart, #15 on the Rock chart, and #7 on the Indie Albums chart. 

The album’s making waves both in Canada and overseas, too.  The album debuted at #15 in Canada, and at #20 on the UK’s charts. 

The band kicked off its world tour in support of the album May 25th alongside Against Me! and The Icarus Line.  The band will perform at the Congress Theatre in Chicago, Illinois tonight before heading back up north to Canada tomorrow and back down to Pittsburgh Sunday night.
