Acclaimed alt-pop duo Cults have today announced UK and European tour dates kicking off November 4th in Manchester. The 10-date run includes stops in London, Brighton, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and is in support of the band’s fifth forthcoming studio album, To the Ghosts, out July 26th on Imperial. Tickets are on sale at 10 AM local time here. Pre Save To The Ghosts here.

Before reaching Europe, the band will be playing a stretch of high-profile shows in the U.S. including a headline summer tour kicking off August 1st, a stop at Lollapalooza on August 4th, and a coveted opening slot supporting Vampire Weekend. UK tour dates below.

The duo, comprised of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion are also treating fans to a unique vinyl package of To the Ghosts, available for pre-order today. Pressed on 180-Gram Black Vinyl, the offering will be available in various colours including “Crystal Blue Vinyl”, “Pinkurple Vinyl” and “Green Onion Vinyl”. The package includes a gatefold jacket, printed inner sleeve, and a limited-edition autographed Zoetrope turntable slipmat.

Cults have released two new tracks from the forthcoming record Left My Keys and “Crybaby.”. Akin to light piercing a dark corner, Cults’ temper shadowy cinematic soundscapes with flickering melodic singalongs. To the Ghosts crystalizes this sonic texture and displays their uncanny ability to balance alternative sonic architecture with unassuming pop songcraft.

To the Ghosts was meticulously crafted; the earliest ideas dated back to the pandemic when they wrote music on weekdays from 10am-5pm with no deadlines or distractions. The album was written and recorded in Brian’s apartment; in 2022 they traveled to Los Angeles to collaborate with longtime producer and trusted creative confidant Shane Stoneback, because “nobody can read our minds like he can,” jests Madeline.
