Ex-Cult announce new LP ‘Negative Growth,’ touring this spring (dates)
Memphis punks Ex-Cult have announced details of their new album Negative Growth, which was recorded with the help of their “family doctor” Ty Segall, who’s also in the band GØGGS with Ex-Cult singer Chris Shaw. Says Shaw:
In the year of the snitch, there are forces beyond your control that keep you up at night. Ghost notions that swirl around your room while you sleep. Your own pillow laughing right in your face while you fight for an hour of rest. There are voices that whisper from the corner, telling you everything you never wanted to hear. Negative Growth, our third album, is dedicated to fear and deception.
They haven’t shared any music from the album or announced a release date, but there is a tracklist, which you can check out below (it’ll be out at some point on In The Red).
Whether the album will be out in time or not, Ex-Cult will be hitting the road in May and June. They’ll be in NYC for a show at The Acheron on May 28, and tickets are on sale now. No word yet on support.
All tour dates are listed, along with the tracklist for Negative Growth, and last year’s single “Stick the Knife In,” below.
