Cults announce one-off UK gig – ticket details

The duo play London Electrowerkz on March 17

Cults are set to play a one-off UK show at London Electrowerkz on March 17.

The gig will take place as part of a wider European tour, and see the duo playing tracks from their second album, ‘Static’, which was released in 2013.

Last year, Brian Oblivion of Cults criticised independent labels, saying his band is far better off being signed to a major label. The US duo released ‘Static’ through Columbia in the UK. Speaking about the fact they are signed to a major label but still enjoy underground credibility, Oblivion said he is happy to work with a bigger company as it means Cults get money to make music videos and work on albums in high quality studios.

“I like to think that what we get from being on a record label is, number one, smart people. Everyone who works there is really cool and professional, and not druggy party people like so many people in the industry. And we get more money up front, so we get to go into nice studios and futz around for months at a time,” Oblivion said on the debate between majors and indies.

Cults released their self-titled debut album in 2011. The two piece band, Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin, were a couple but split up prior to entering the studio to record ‘Static’.
