Co-produced by Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age, U.N.K.L.E.) and longtime collaborator Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith), Choice of Weapon sees The Cult back with a vengeance.

Last time I saw The Cult was probably back in 1992 when Lenny Kravitz opened for them. I had a 3rd row seat at the Palumbo on Duquesne University campus- killer show. Just to show you how old I am, I saw them at least three times at Syria Mosque starting with the CD “Love” back when I was in high school. I am very enthused with what I have heard of the new effort so far, so I will not be missing them in Pittsburgh June 3rd. Always incredible live, Astbury and Duffy put on an incredible show every time. Check them out at the SXSW Festival a few weeks ago:
