The Cult has just wrapped up recording 'Choice of Weapon', the band's first studio record in five years.
The album will be released on May 22nd, 2012 on the band's new label Cooking Vinyl.
'Choice of Weapon' is the follow up to the critically-acclaimed 2007 release 'Born Into This'. Long-time Cult collaborator and producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bush), who produced one of The Cult's most successful records, the Platinum-certified 'Sonic Temple', put the finishing touches on the foundations that were laid by co-producer Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E., Masters of Reality).
The new release features founding members Astbury on vocals and Duffy on guitars, with drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse.
The Cult is working on film and graphic elements to accompany the record's release, and plans are being confirmed for the band's 2012 World Tour.
