Cult Leader (ex-Gaza) streaming new EP; tour starts soon

by Doug Moore

In case you’ve forgotten: Utah metalcore sluggers Cult Leader are basically Gaza after a shakeup at the vocal spot. The first song they debuted from their upcoming EP suggested that not a lot had changed with this group of musicians aside from their name; Lucero’s vocals are quite similar to ex-Gaza singer Jon Parkin’s, and the instrumental unit still rockets between jittery tech runs and doomy slams.

Cult Leader are now streaming that EP, titled Nothing For Us Here, which you can stream below via Slug Magazine. Unsurprisingly, the whole thing pretty much picks up where Gaza left off…which definitely isn’t a bad thing. If anything, I’m even more excited for Cult Leader’s upcoming tour with Yautja now than I was when it was announced a few weeks back. Said tour hits NYC at Grand Victory on May 16 with local help from Tiger Flowers and Divider. Tickets for that show are still available. Don’t miss it.

Nothing For Us Here comes out on April 15 via Deathwish Inc.; preorder it here. Stream it below, and check out both Cult Leader and Yautja’s (slightly different) tour schedules below…
