The Cult will reissue their Sonic Temple album on its 30th anniversary and later head out on a UK tour.

On September 13th, deluxe boxset and 5-CD versions of the record will contain limited-release demos and previously unreleased tracks. “We wanted to retain our core DNA as we went deeper into psych and hard rock influences,” Ian Astbury has remembered in a recent interview. “It was a complete immersion for me into art, film, music, poetry and literature, weaving those influences into what was to become Sonic Temple. The band was becoming more popular. We were in uncharted waters.”

“Most of the bands we had come up with had split up or fallen off. We were accelerating. There was no real time to breathe. We were forming new allegiances and breaking the glass ceiling of ‘the indie outsider’.”

The tour begins on October 15th in Nottingham.

Tour dates:

15 – Nottingham, UK, Rock City
17 – Birmingham, UK, O2 Academy
18 – Cardiff, UK, Cardiff University
20 – Leeds, UK, O2 Academy
