Cults at Mercury Lounge (more by Jessica Amaya)

Cults play The Independent in San Francisco on Thursday, a prequel to their appearance at Coachella this weekend and the end of the road for a tour with Magic Kids that saw them play Mercury Lounge together and saw Cults play Knitting Factory without Magic Kids whose van went kaput.

After a couple months away from the road, Cults will head back on another East Coast trek where the band play two more NYC dates: at The Box on June 8th and Music Hall Of Williamsburg on June 9th. Details on the 6/8 show at The Box are sketchy at best (possibly not open to the public?), but tickets for the MHoW show go on sale Friday 4/15 at noon.

The tour also includes a Canadian stint where they'll appear at NXNE in Toronto. There the band will join as many as 650 others in playing the eight day festival. The announced also include Deerhoof, Dodos, Bouncing Souls, Hot Water Music, and Art Brut. Full lineup is forthcoming.

All Cults dates and a stream of the new track "You Know What I Mean" below.

^ how old are you?

I actually thought they sounded really good in Chicago the other night, but the set was very short. Actually, all three sets (Magic Kids, Superhumanoids) were very short. That's not exactly unexpected, but I think the setup time between sets was longer than the sets themselves.

The show at The Box is NOT open to the public.

You don't get it - they need to keep touring so they can encounter more bands and further plagiarize from them. then they'll have a debut album of unoriginal material, silly.

^ "Original?" Don't be immature.

They've totally brought back that like old rock mystique where I don't have a direct connection to the band. I've spent the whole day sitting, just dreaming in my room about what they might be doing at this moment. So glad there isn't a picture of what sandwich they ate today. That would so take something away from me.

Thanks Cults. Thanks so much.

just another buzzband with awful live shows

Wondering why a band with three songs is playing every festie this year and gets to close gigs at which they were supposed to be an opener? It must be nice to have the enforced ubiquity that comes with major label backing.

Wow! What ever happened to "if you don't have anything nice to say then shut the f--- up! I love their sound and they seem like really nice people :) Touring in a shitty hot van paying over 4 bucks a gallon on gas, eating crap food, sleeping wherever- to spread a little joy!!!
