Music, what else

Drummer JOHN TEMPESTA Joins THE CULT

After two auditions, John Tempesta (EXODUS, TESTAMENT, HELMET, WHITE ZOMBIE, ROB ZOMBIE) has been hired as the new drummer for THE CULT. Tempesta will make his debut with the group when they perform on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on Friday, February 24 on the CBS-TV network.

THE CULT‘s upcoming tour, tagged “A Return To Wild”, will cover 19 cities launching at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco and winding up at Nokia Live in New York City. Although the band was offered large venues they opted for more intimate houses. These shows are for CULT devotees and the wickedly curious. “We need to reconnect with our people, our tribe,” claimed Duffy. “We need to be among them. We want this to be as intimate as possible. You can’t do that in an airline hanger, mate.”

In addition to playing live shows, THE CULT also plans to “explore the possibilities of making new music in 2006,” but no firm commitments have been made, according to a press release.

THE CULT‘s last tour — behind their acclaimed 2001 album, “Beyond Good and Evil” — featured principal members Ian Astbury (vocals) and Billy Duffy (guitar) alongside longtime THE CULT drummer Matt Sorum and bassist Billy Morrison.
