THE CULT – Choice Of Weapon

The Cult, among the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, returns with their first new studio album in five years, Choice of Weapon.
The chemistry between the vastly different core members Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy – equal-parts genuine affection and palpable tension – remains the source of their long-standing partnership. Long-time Cult collaborator/producer Bob Rock put the finishing touches on the foundations laid down by producer Chris Goss.
The album’s 10 tracks reveal the band at its rawest and most visceral, encapsulating cinematic visions and themes of love, revolt and redemption.

MISFITS – The Devil’s Rain

The Misfits return with their long awaited, first full-length release of all-new, original material in nearly a decade.
Rooted in the horror and sci-fi themes fiends crave, The Devil’s Rain showcases 16 fiendish, soon-to-be Misfits classics including ‘Twilight of the Dead,’ ‘Dark Shadows,’ ‘Curse of the Mummy’s Hand’ and the title track itself, ‘The Devil’s Rain.’ Produced by Ed Stasium, (whose credits include the Ramones’ Road to Ruin and Too Tough to Die, as well as the Misfits’ 1999 release Famous Monsters), the album showcases a jaw-dropping, two-panel front/back cover painting featuring the rebirth of the band’s iconic ‘Fiend’ mascot in an epic setting rendered by Arthur Suydam (known for his immensely popular work on the Marvel Zombies series, among others). The packaging, designed to emulate a CD sized gatefold LP, also features some incredible new Misfits portraits shot by the legendary Mick Rock. Rock’s imagery (which includes Bowie, Iggy, Queen, Debbie Harry, and the Ramones to name a few), has become part of the very fabric of rock ‘n’ roll. Having also served as an on-set photographer for cult-movie classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Rock lends a perfectly suited eye to view the band’s surrealistic and highly theatrical persona.
The Devil’s Rain is not just a continuation of a historic legacy, it’s a total reboot ushering in a new era of terror. In a sense, it’s the debut album from the legendary Misfits of this decade. From fans of their classics, to newcomers discovering the band for the very first time, The Devil’s Rain sets the bar, and redefines the ferocity and melody that has made the Misfits omnipresent and immortal.
First press Ltd. Deluxe Edition CD digipak includes an exclusive 9.5′ x 14′ two-sided poster featuring the incredible cover art by Arthur Suydam (treated with Glow-In-The-Dark ink), plus a fantastic new band portrait by legendary photographer Mick Rock on the reverse.
