Cults Announce Debut Album, First Headlining Tour
For a band that has released only four songs to date, indie-pop duo Cults has turned plenty of heads since emerging out of nowhere during the past year. Apparently, these four songs—including the delightful “Go Outside”—along with an impressive run of CMJ performances spoke volumes about the band’s breakout potential in the years to come. Cults even caught the attention of Columbia Records, prompting the label to sign them to a record contract in November. With that in place, the band wasted no time moving forward, announcing plans to release its debut album in May 2011.
Cults are currently working on the forthcoming LP with producer Shane Stoneback (Sleigh Bells, Vampire Weekend). In addition, the band also scheduled its first-ever headlining tour, in which Cults will trek across the United States during March and April.
