In 2023, Death Cult returned and reunited for a handful of performances. In 2024, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Cult, Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy have curated the previously released Death Cult collection, ‘Ghost Dance’, and re-compiled the tracks for a 2024 release titled ‘Paradise Now’.

Southern Death Cult formed in 1981, releasing their sole, self-titled album posthumously in 1983. That same year, Death Cult formed, with Astbury joining forces with Duffy for a musical
partnership that has endured for 40-plus years. The band released two 12”s that same year, one being the ‘Death Cult’ EP, which were subsequently combined and released as a CD.
‘Death Cult’ is a vital transmission from the generation of Shamanic post-punk gothic futurists.

In late 2023, Astbury and Duffy reformed Death Cult for a series of live performances, including a sole US date at The Theatre at The Ace Hotel in Los Angeles and a limited run of UK dates
including back-to-back sold out shows at the Brixton Electric.

Death Cult became The Cult in 1984, releasing ‘Dreamtime’ that same year. The seminal post-punk band has gone on to sell in excess of four million albums with numerous international and
US Gold and Platinum certifications.
