THE CULT Kick Off World Tour With TV Appearance On "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"!

This past Friday, May 18, The Cult were the musical guests on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" The bands appearance marked the band's second appearance on the late-night network television show.

For the telecast, The Cult performed a track from their NEW album, 'Choice of Weapon', due out May 22, as well as one of the band's classics. In addition, the band played three more songs that are available exclusively on the "Kimmel" website (link below).

'Choice of Weapon' has already begun to get stellar press reviews, with the consensus being that it's the band's best album since their Platinum-selling 'Sonic Temple'. Both the UK's Mojo and Record Collector gave it a 4-Star review with Record Collector proclaiming it to be "their best album in years - probably decades;" Q magazine called it "brilliant," and response from U.S. outlets has been as enthusiastic: "...the group's most incisive, infectious, and irresistible album ever..." "...Choice of Weapon captures the best essence of the band's sound from Electric and Sonic Temple while pushing it forward..." "...pretty sensational..."
