The Cult’s Billy Duffy on Their New Album: ‘You Don’t Overdo It, Or You End Up With ‘Chinese Democracy”
Noisecreep was lucky enough to hear a few cuts off of ‘Choice of Weapon’ and it finds the veteran rockers mining from some of the same instrumental textures as the aforementioned ‘Sonic Temple’ album, and 2001’s ‘Between Good and Evil.’ “We started the new record with Chris [Goss] and then we hit some scheduling conflicts with him. We also felt like we got really far with some of these songs, but we just couldn’t get past the finishing line, so Ian [Astbury, vocals] thought Bob Rock might be able to get us to that point.
The Cult Return With ‘Choice of Weapon,’ Offer Download of New Track ‘Lucifer’
We caught up with guitarist Billy Duffy to get his thoughts on ’Lucifer,’ the first song from the upcoming disc that the band is releasing to the public. Much to our surprise, the tune isn’t about the crimson colored, horn-rimmed evil fiend from down under as the name would suggest, in fact, according to Duffy, “It’s absolutely nothing to do with the devil at all, that’s what’s pretty funny. It couldn’t be less to do with that than ‘Karma Chameleon.’” He went on to explain, “It’s not about that at all, it’s about a person in a hedonist lifestyle.”
