Embracing new media technologies The Cult worked with Aderra to release Capsule 1 in various formats including CD/DVD DualDisc, 12 inch vinyl, USB flash drive, FLAC download and Mp3 download.

Tracks 1 and 2 also appeared on the Deluxe edition of Choice of Weapon on an additional CD with all four tracks that made up Capsule 1 & 2.

“Embers” was a real moment. I lived through that. It was a very intimate moment, a very honest, authentic moment. The thing I love the most about that song is the space in it. All joking and histrionics aside, there you are: raw, open, vulnerable, and intimate. Breath on breath. When you’re that close to someone, breathing in their face, the energy between two people, you’re not even speaking. It’s a space that’s really difficult to get to. If you can get to that space and work in that space, powerful things can happen. Chris Goss was the one who created the environment for that to happen.
