The Cult announce tour dates

The Cult Choice of Weapon

UK post-punk legends The Cult have just announced several months of shows. The band held their first major performances of the year just last month at South by Southwest where they were joined by actor Matthew McConaughey on bongos.

The official tour starts on May 4 and continues through September 16. Florida punks Against Me! and Hollywood hard rockers The Icarus Line are scheduled to open throughout the tour. The Cult will be in the U.S. through June 22 before travelling to Europe for the second leg. Those U.S. dates include a stay in the Norhteast from June 3 to 12 with shows in Pittsburgh, Boston, Buffalo, New York City, Hampton Beach, Philadelphia, and DC.

The whole tour is in support of Choice of Weapon, The Cult’s ninth full-length, due out May 22 via Cooking Vinyl. Listen to lead single “For The Animals” and check out the full tour schedule below.
