To Release Single: “Make It Easy” – July 8th
+ Announce Nationwide Tour dates:
August 5 – Sunflower Fest
Cult Called Man are more than just a band. They are a gathering. A legion. A Cult. With their debut album on the horizon, the summer festival season looming ahead and global conquest on their minds, 2016 will be a seminal year for Cult Called Man who have just announced the release of their new Radio Single “Make It Easy” on July 8th.
Conceived in a Dublin psychiatric ward in 2012, the art punk rock quintet have always held an appreciation for the strange side of the human condition. ‘When we play, it’s a church. We preach, and people either get on board or get freaked out.’
In the wake of 2014’s ‘Mr Wednesdae E.P’ recordings, the Cult cloistered themselves within Tyrellstown’s Camelot Studios, to write and record their debut album, due for release later this year. With a sound that evokes equal parts of David Bowie and Jim Henson’s Muppets, Cult Called Man’s distinctive sound singles them out amongst a music scene that is increasingly relying on imitation rather than innovation to lead them along the path to success.
With standout performances at Electric Picnic’s Salty Dog and Trailer Park stages, along with appearances at nearly every major Irish Festival and a support slot with Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) in Dublin’s prestigious Sugar Club, Cult Called Man stand poised to bring their live spectacle to an even greater audience this year.
