The Cult have announced The 8424 Tour, commemorating 40 years as a band, with shows spanning the UK and Europe.

The 40th anniversary trek sees The Cult perform songs spanning their 11-album discography.

Billy Duffy shares: “Following up from the great energy of Death Cult 8323 shows, I’m looking forward to bringing that sense of celebration of the band’s music, and the communion with our fans, to Cult 8424. CFFC. Let the ceremony commence!”

The Cult hold a significant place in musical history due to their pioneering use of post-punk, hard rock, and experimentalism, pushing boundaries and influencing countless bands across multiple genres. With their musical prowess, uncompromising attitude and captivating stage presence, they forged a distinct identity while charting new territory for bands to explore. From Billy Duffy’s formative, and influential, years in the Manchester underground, to Ian Astbury’s groundbreaking Gathering of the Tribes, the duo has left an indelible mark on modern music, shaping its trajectory in profound ways.

In 2024, The Cult will embark on a UK tour in the autumn, starting in Leicester on 21 October. It will include stops in major cities such as Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, and London, with a show at the historic Royal Albert Hall.
