The Cult have announced 'Electric 13', a worldwide tour that will visit ten UK cities this October.

"The Cult's life blood has always been playing live, we are between albums and decided to continue the momentum created by 'Choice Of Weapon', stay in people's hearts and minds. As 'Love Live' was such an incredible experience we have decided that performing the 'Electric' album, an event that has been demanded by our fans and followers as the perfect live set to play in 2013." - Ian Astbury, The Cult

Born out of the ashes of the UK post-punk scene, The Cult evolved to become one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, selling millions of albums, headlining venues worldwide, infusing innovative possibilities into the worlds of music, art and fashion and quickly ascending through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status.

In 1987, The Cult released 'Electric', an album of stylistic change that aimed the band straight at the heart of the rock market. Recorded in New York City at the legendary Electric Ladyland studios and filled with the energy of the dirty NYC streets, together with a young producer named Rick Rubin, who resonated more with the hip hop world of The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and Public Enemy; the band delivered an recording that has gone on to become one of The Cult's most successful and influential albums, and as a follow up to 'Love', kicked the door wide open to a passionate new audience.

'Electric' went on to become the band's first Platinum album. They quickly captured media attention featuring heavily in music and fashion magazines as well as becoming an MTV staple after dark and where spun heavily on radio coast to coast. 'Electric' was supported by an incident filled world tour with Guns N' Roses as the opener in North American. Beginning in January of that year, The Cult headlined in the U.K., Europe, the U.S., Canada, and Australia, opened select dates for Iggy Pop and David Bowie, returning at the end of the year to sell out Wembley Arena and Brixton Academy in London.

The Cult will perform 'Electric', raw and unfiltered on tour in 2013, an event branded as Electric 13. This will be a hot ticket as The Cult have never performed the album in its entirety. The live show will also include a second set pulling from the band's eight other studio albums.

Tickets will be available from 9am on Friday May 17th via www.kililive.com and www.seetickets.com. Phone: 0844 871 8803 and venue box offices.

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
