[pullquote quote=”A weapon can be a camera, a weapon can be a pen, a weapon can be a statement.” credit=”Ian Astbury”]After swearing off albums in favor of multi-song “capsules,” The Cult roars back into action this May with a new, 10-track album called Choice of Weapon. Produced by Bob Rock and Chris Goss (Queens of the Stone Age), the new album will be the band’s ninth and first in five years.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Astbury discusses the themes of the record: “The title of the record reflects the fact that here we are, we have a choice to make right now. We can choose different modalities. We can either choose literal weapons, which, many people have picked up weapons in Libya, Egypt, Syria. Or picking up weapons and overtaking systems, physically, by force. In a more metaphorical sense, a weapon can be a camera, a weapon can be a pen, a weapon can be a statement, a verbal statement, a weapon can be an article of clothing.”
