Welcome to the new and improved Cult Central. This site chronicles the past, present and future of the Cult and related projects. The Cult is Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy. In 2006 they added new members, John Tempesta on Drums, and in 2015 they picked up Grant Fitzpatrick on bass and Damon Fox on keyboards and rhythm guitar.

As always, we're interested in contributions including stories, reviews, news, pictures, artwork, and anything else that may be on your mind.

The first date of 2019 has been announced. Interestingly, The Cult will be playing the Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival in Columbus, Ohio. I'm always excited when new dates start to roll in. I expect we'll start to see more dates comeing in soon enough.

Billy has created a new web site to chronicle his achievements and current activity. You can find it at Make sure you sign up to his mailing list to get the latest information.

If you're on Facebook there's a bunch of activity there. Brian Astbury, who is Ian's brother, has created a "Rare Cult" group where people can post photos of their rare items. There have been some really cool items show up on there - it's a great place to explore the true depth of collectables that the band have available. In addition the Band has a group along with each band member individually . There are plenty of interesting news tidbits to read about there.

As always, please feel free to continue to send in reviews of the shows this year (and previous years for that matter), it's great to have that information on the site for everybody to read.

Pop by the message board using the link on the right. Lots of fans dropping in to discuss various aspects of the band and side projects.
