The Cult was formed in 1983 by singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy. The band is responsible for iconic alternative and rock music hits including: “She Sells Sanctuary,” “Rain,” “Fire Woman,” “Love Removal Machine” and many others. The band knows no other way to bring it, than aggressive, hard and straight at you. A testament to The Cult’s live show was Coachella 2014. Few, at the world’s largest music festival, were expecting the fury that the band delivered. As the festival goers milled about, packing in the field in front of the stage, Astbury and Duffy were building up to a crescendo, of which, when the smoke cleared, Rolling Stone would hail as “the Messianic moment of Coachella.”
