THE ICARUS LINE AND GIRLS NAMES JOIN THE CULT FOR LONDON DATES
August 15, 2013 by RED
The Cult are proud to welcome explosive Los Angeles noise-punk kings The Icarus Line onto the bill for their two-night stint at The Roundhouse this coming October 31st and November 1st. Since forming in 1998, The Icarus Line, led by frontman Joe Cardamone, have built a bewildering body of sonic noise and are back to punish eardrums with the release of the already critically-acclaimed new album ‘Slave Vows’.
Opening the show will be Belfast four-piece Girls Names, whose fizzy lo-fi pop is sure to thrill, making for an exciting, eclectic bill that perfectly summarises The Cult’s genre transcending status. Born out of the ashes of the UK post-punk scene, The Cult evolved to become one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, selling millions of albums, headlining venues worldwide, infusing innovative possibilities into the worlds of music, art and fashion and quickly ascending through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status.
Previously announced Japanese psych-core four-piece Bo Ningen will support The Cult across all of the ELECTRIC 13 dates. Now based in the capital, these four, skinny enlightenment activists from the Far East psychedelic underground, will be playing tracks from their previous EP’s and forthcoming new album scheduled for release in October.
In 1987, The Cult released ‘Electric’, an album of stylistic change that aimed the band straight at the heart of the rock market. ‘Electric’ went on to become the band’s first Platinum album, catapulting the band’s notoriety across the planet. Witness it live at ELECTRIC 13.
