Last month Cults released a stream of "High Road" to glowing reviews.   Spin noted that the track is "a slinking and dreamy example of the duo at their most in-the-pocket." While Pigeons and Planes declared "High Road" is a reminder why Cults stood out – they do this style very well." 

To celebrate the release of Static Cults will perform at this year's CMJ Festival in New York City starting with The Syndicate "Conflict of Interest" event on October 15 at Brooklyn Bowl.  The band will kick off their headline tour later this month starting in Boston, MA on October 22. After that the band will travel across North America for headline dates in Washington, D.C., Austin, TX, Los Angeles, CA and many more.  Cults will also make appearances at Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas on October 26/27 and Voodoo Fest in New Orleans on November 2.

Static, which was produced by Cults with support from Shane Stoneback (Sleigh Bells, Vampire Weekend) and Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Washed Out), is comprised of 11 tracks including the previously released song "I Can Hardly Make You Mine."  The band shared a self-directed album teaser which features additional tracks from Static including: "We've Got It" and "So Far," view here:  Static is available now for pre-order where fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of "High Road."  To pre-order Cults Static visit:

The album is streaming on NPR, so happy the wait is over! I'm happy that Cults has stayed true to their signature sound on this second album. My favorite song off the album is Keep Your Head Up :)
