Finally I’m gonna find out just what the fuck Ian Astbury has been eating that’s made him look like Jim Morrison (Paris era) cuz The Cult have tapped The Icarus Line as openers for their tour of The States this June! See ya at catering broseph! Dude ain’t skippin’ any meals that’s for sures! But chubs or not, homeboy is still kicking ass! I’m digging this new record from The Cult which was produced by main man Christopher Goss who you may know from his own band Masters of Reality or from his numerous ass kicking production jobs such as Queens Of The Stone Age, UNKLE, Kyuss, Screaming Trees, Soulwax, The Duke Spirit, Smith & Pyle, Melissa Auf der Maur, Lupe Fiasco, Mark Lanegan, Desert Sessions & many many others…. dude rules in short. Check out a jam from the new Cult record here…
And check out another one here… if you give em your email they’ll let you have a free mp3 of this one. I mean what’s the worst that could happen? Billy might sell your email address to some Viagra sites? Big deal, totally worth it dude.
And here are the tour dates for The Cult / The Icarus Line tour of America! When else will you be able to pay fifty bucks to see The Icarus Line play to a shitload of confused Against Me fans? Yeah, Against Me is on the tour too. No idea what they sound like but I’m positive that I’m not into it. Hopefully they’re nice guy at least.
Here are the dates yo! I hope the LA show is at the Palladium… always wanted to see Joe snake across that stage… fingers crossed! Maybe The Icarus Line will pull out some old fan favs for the occasion? We’ll see.
