Jul. 10 - Lockport, NY @ Ulrich City Center

In other news, Vinyl 180 will release a remastered edition of THE CULT's "Love" album on March 9, 2009 on 180g vinyl with updated artwork. It will be released as a single-disc and a double-disc version. The limited-edition version (see image below) features an extra disc of "She Sells Sanctuary" remixes. The redesigned heavyweight gatefold sleeve has the wing motif foil-blocked in silver with picture labels and heavyweight inner bags.

Fan-filmed video footage of THE CULT's September 9, 2008 concert at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. can be viewed below (clip uploaded by YouTube user "SonicWindmill").

THE CULT last year parted ways with Roadrunner Records, the label that released the group's latest album, "Born into This". That CD sold 12,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 70 on The Billboard 200 chart. It was recorded in London with producer Youth (VERVE, PRIMAL SCREAM).

THE CULT's current touring lineup includes principals Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy alongside bassist Chris Wyse, drummer John Tempesta (ex-WHITE ZOMBIE, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, HELMET) and rhythm guitarist Mike Dimkich.
