The Cult to Highlight Early Material on Death Cult Fall 2023 Tour
The Cult’s Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy will honor their post-punk roots with a one-off tour this fall under their pre-fame moniker Death Cult.
The brief run will comprise one Los Angeles show on Oct. 23, with support from darkwave group Cold Cave, as well as a dozen shows in the United Kingdom in November. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday. You can see the full list of dates below.
Formed by Astbury and Duffy in 1983, Death Cult evolved out of Astbury’s previous band Southern Death Cult. The group released a self-titled EP and the single “Gods Zoo” in 1983 before rechristening itself as the Cult in early 1984.
The upcoming tour will honor all three phases of the band, focusing on Southern Death Cult, Death Cult and the Cult’s first two full-length albums: 1984’s Dreamtime and 1985’s Love, which spawned the breakthrough hit “She Sells Sanctuary.”
