Cults To Release Debut Album And Tour The UK In May

March 14, 2011 by  

New York duo Cults have finally revealed some details of their self-titled debut album, which is set for release in the UK on In The Name Of/ Columbia on May 30th.

One half of the duo, Brian, recently told us how they recorded the album “90% of everything we done on the record was done at home just with a laptop then we?d go into the studio and do guitars and vocals, but we do all the drums, bass, synths and organs at home because it?s just what we?re are used to. I couldn?t figure out any other way to do it.”

The duo also enlisted the help of engineer Shane Stoneback, “we took all that stuff to him and then he managed to turn it into something that is so beautiful and take it to another level.”
