The Cult have been celebrating their 1987 LP, Electric, the album that marked their change from post-punks to hard rockers, this year with a double album reissue, Electric Peace, and they've also been playing it in full on tour. Another North American leg of that tour begins this week with two stops in the NYC-area, including Wellmont Theatre on Thursday (12/5) in Montclair, NJ and Paramount Theatre on Friday (12/6) in Huntington, NY. Tickets for both of those shows are available, and we're also giving away a pair to the Wellmont date. Contest details and all tour dates below.

In a Spanish interview from earlier this year, the band also revealed plans to release a new album in 2014, which would be the followup to 2012's Choice of Weapon.

Check out a full set video of the band's Electric 13 Live tour stop in San Diego from this past July, along with the list of upcoming dates and contest details, below...

Billy Duffy is an absolute fucking beast on guitar. Saw the Roseland show this summer - Ian Astbury was meh but Duffy i thought was worth the price of admission. Dude is redonkulous.

They need to hookup with Rick Rubin again. Electric was a mind-blowing makeover back then and 1992's The Witch was light-years ahead of its time.

Electric blew my 14 year old mind away when it came out. Bought it on vinyl and it just sounded so fuckin good. The music just jumped off the record. And Duffy's guitar work on that was awesome. Granted, it was generally an ACDC rip-off, but I liked it so much more than ACDC.

Electric marked the beginning of the end for The Cult. 'Love' was so good—with a unique sound and grace to it (psychedelic heavy metal?)—but then 'Electric' et al were just boring.

A pity. These guys have talent.

The Cult are amazing and it's good to see them out there and still kicking ass. Ian's vocals and Billy's amazing guitar playing are 100% solid in this band. They've always managed to straddle this musical-ground between Sisters of Mercy stye 'goth' and full blown arena rock pretty damn well, and they really don't sound like any other band other then themselves, which is really hard to do.

It feels like a band again. Chris (bass) and John (drums) have been around for a while.

I liked the Terminal 5 and Roseland shows. Ian's got a monster personality and attitude.

Don't let Ian see you play with your iPhone

As he says: "BE PRESENT"
