"2019 marks the 30th anniversary of The Cult’s epic album SONIC TEMPLE. To celebrate the anniversary, Beggars Arkive will release THE CULT: SONIC TEMPLE 30 on August 30th. There is a limited edition deluxe box set [180gm blue vinyl], a 5-CD set, and we are also reissuing Sonic Temple on Double 180gm Black Vinyl LP, which has been out of print for over 20 years. The sets both contain limited-release demos in addition to previously unreleased tracks.
Originally released in 1989, Sonic Temple proved to be a pivotal moment for both band and the wider rock scene. Produced by the legendary Bob Rock (Metallica, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith), Sonic Temple had four hit singles; “Fire Woman”, “Edie (Ciao Baby)”, “Sun King” and “Sweet Soul Sister”.
The album catapulted The Cult into superstar status and remains their most commercially successful release. It has sold over 1.5 million copies in the US alone, and was declared platinum in 1990. It made it to #10 on the Billboard charts, and the abovementioned songs are all rock-radio staples to this day.
The Cult continues to record and tour and they have released six albums since Sonic Temple, the most recent being Hidden City in 2016. They’ve been spending 2019 celebrating this album by performing it all over the world on a tour they’ve billed as A Sonic Temple.
