Embers/Untill The Light Takes Us, CDS, USA, CAPSULE2, 4 tracks + video, w/ stickered black jacket
Legendary rock band THE CULT prepares to release new music on November 16 via innovative music capsules, heralding a new era of music delivery that will impact the way we hear music for years to come. "Capsule 2: New Blood Deep Cuts" features new songs "Embers" and "Until The Light Takes Us", live recordings of some of the band's huge hits and an intimate look into THE CULT's rehearsal space, with a never-before-seen warm-up performance of "Black Angel".
Rather than revisit the traditional method of releasing a long form CD, the band is pioneering a new way of providing material. Capsules span multiple media formats including vinyl, digital, USB, CD and DVD formats, and can be purchased at cultcapsulestore.com.
Frontman Ian Astbury explains: We are stepping away from the conventional system. By including new music, live music and film, we are giving our fans the opportunity to own other creative visions. The Capsule is a way of delivering music in bites, quicker and fresher than in the context of an album format."
"Capsule 2: New Blood Deep Cuts"' lead track, "Embers", will be available exclusively on iTunes beginning November 1 for two weeks, while iTunes' exciting new music-oriented social network site called Ping boasts an exclusive on-demand preview streaming of "Embers", the "Black Angel" rehearsal film and new band photos.
