In a recent interview with ViperRoom.com, The Cult bassist Chris Wyse revealed that the band is almost finished recording their anticipated new studio album, which is supposedly due for release in April of next year. He explained, “The new The Cult deal is with [the] Cooking Vinyl [label]. We’re in good company with The Prodigy and Marilyn Manson. The record is nearly done; Ian [Astbury] is probably doing vocals right now. It is due out April 2012!! This record is kind of a Zep/Stooges mix of energy, and I believe showcases a new level of depth for The Cult.”
The new album is being produced by Chris Goss, frontman of Masters of Reality and also best known for producing albums by bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss. Other than a series of new songs, The Cult haven’t released a full-length album since 2007’s Born Into This.
The band will embark on a UK tour in January.
