The Cult to Merge Musical Past With ‘Electric Peace’ Collection

Beggars Banquet

The Cult are releasing a two-disc collection titled ‘Electric Peace,’ a set which combines the ‘Peace’ and ‘Electric’ albums. Recorded as a follow up to the group’s 1985 effort ‘Love,’ ‘Peace’ was initially shelved and its songs were released in various incarnations. The songs last surfaced in the Rare Cult box set that came out in 2000, and this collection is the first time in 13 years that the ‘Peace’ tracks will be available to the public. The ‘Electric Peace’ collection is due July 30 and will be available in CD and LP formats via Beggars Banquet.

Back in October 1986, members of The Cult were looking for a rawer sound and were not pleased with the clean, studio feel of ‘Peace.’ Thanks to a collaboration with producer Rick Rubin, the group re-recorded the entire album in New York and created the ‘Electric’ album.

Next month, the band return to the road to perform their entire ‘Electric’ album for their fans. “The Cult’s life blood has always been playing live, we are between albums and decided to continue the momentum created by ‘Choice of Weapon,’ stay in people’s hearts and minds,” said frontman Ian Astbury of the impending ‘Electric 13′ tour. “As ‘Love Live’ was such an incredible experience we have decided that performing the ‘Electric’ album, an event that has been demanded by our fans and followers as the perfect live set to play in 2013.”

Recorded at Electric Ladyland studios, ‘Electric’ was the group’s first ever platinum selling release. The band embarked on a world tour in support of the release, as they had dates with Guns N’ Roses and served as openers for Iggy Pop and David Bowie.
