The Cult gained popularity in the UK in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band, with singles such as “She Sells Sanctuary”, before breaking mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as “Love Removal Machine” and “Fire Woman”.

In 2016 The Cult released their new album ‘Hidden City’. The album is said to be the final part of a trilogy that began with Born into This, and marks the fifth time Bob Rock had produced a Cult album.

Founding singer Ian Astbury, guitarist Billy Duffy, drummer John Tempesta, bassist Grant Fitzpatrick and keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Damon Fox went on tour in 2016 to promote Hidden City. The Cult opened for Guns N’ Roses on the Not in This Lifetime… Tour.
