Blogosphere Band Cults Plots Tour And Album Release

    Last year, Cults appeared on the radar almost out of nowhere, rocking the ’60s girl pop sounds of “Go Outside.” Their relative anonymity was soon exposed: turned out Cults consisted of a pair of Californian film students transplanted to New York, named Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin. On the strength of “Go Outside” and the three other songs the band has recorded, the duo garnered enough attention to get a deal out of Columbia Records subsidiary In the Name Of late last year.

     

    Right now the band is in the studio with Shane Stonebeck, whose credits include Vampire Weekend, M.I.A., and Sleigh Bells. The currently untitled record is scheduled to come out this May. In the months before the album’s release, Cults will be touring the country with the likes of Small Black and Sun Airway. Check out those dates below, and check back later for more information on Cults’ upcoming album.
