The Cult Hidden City CD




When Rolling Stone hailed The Cult as "the Messianic moment of Coachella" in 2014, few knew that their next release would be unveiled in the form of 'Hidden City,' their tenth studio album (and second for Cooking Vinyl).

The final instalment in a trilogy of recordings, completing 2007's 'Born Into This (The Fall)' and 2012's 'Choice of Weapon (Dark Night of the Soul),' 'Hidden City' is a tightly-woven series of experience and visions with underlying themes of redemption and rebirth threaded through The Cult's visceral music. Astbury's signature baritone and blood-soaked lyrics paired with Duffy's smouldering, textured guitar tones, create a musical environment that is fearless and peerless.

From the sonic assault of the opening track "Dark Energy," 'Hidden City' launches quickly into the dark underbelly of its subject matter.  Stemming from the Spanish phrase "La Ciudad Oculta" or "hidden city," the album reflects an awakening of consciousness through its tone and complexity. "'Hidden City' is a metaphor for our spiritual lives our intimate interior lives," explains Astbury. "I find today's gurus are trying to peddle some cure, product or insight as if it's a new phenomenon.

My place is to respond, not react, to observe, participate and share through words and music. There is no higher authority than the heart."
