Cults Release Video For “I Took Your Picture,” New Album ‘Offering’ Out October 6 Via Sinderlyn, Tour Dates Announced – THE PARTAE

by the partae

Cults will release their highly anticipated new album Offering on October 6, and yesterday, they premiered their latest video for single “I Took Your Picture” via Billboard. They wrote, “In the newly-released video for the track, the indie pop act amps up the surrealism with a shoot that involves a vibrantly lit living room transforming into a room built out of hair and a visual manifestation of their signature dense rhythm section in the form of vocalist Madeline Follin’s constant headbanging. Despite the implicit rock vibes of the video, the song finds the band on a new wave kick that softens the edges from the rock-centric set on 2013’s Static.”

The video, directed by Elliott Sellers, was shot in Piermont, NY, where Cults first recorded Go Outside and their first EP. The ending scene was shot on top of Brian Oblivion’s roof in NYC.

“I Took Your Picture” follows the release of the title track from the record. Consequence of Sound described it as “glittery, synth-laden” and SPIN wrote, “Washed in warm synths and thick, weighty drums, “Offering” cuts straight to the heart of what makes a Cults’ track great, as singer Madeline Follin offers breathy, reflective vocals.”

Offering will be released on October 6 via Sinderlyn and it marks the band’s first LP since 2013’s Static. In support of Offering, Cults will be touring North America with dates starting October 14 in Philadelphia.  Highlights include Brooklyn’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg on October 17 and the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles on November 7.  The tour concludes November 19 in Baltimore, MD.  Cullen Omori supports from October 14th to November 1st; Curls support from November 3 to November 7; and She-Devils support from November 9 through November 19th.  Advance tickets in participating markets come with a download redemption of the album. The band are also playing Hartford, CT’s Small State Great Beer Brewfestand on September 16.  All dates are listed below and tickets on sale now.

Early Acclaim for Offering:

“The lyrics are pure romance. It also benefits from a dreamy-sounding chorus – perfect for the last of these summer days.” Hollywood Life on “I Took Your Picture”

“If “I Took Your Picture” is any indication, their upcoming album may continue to feature the hazy-guitar and high-pitched vocals for which they are known.” Baeble

” The new single is heavy on the shimmery, synth vibes – piled with layers upon layers of background 8-bit fuzz, with Madeline Folin’s pure, ethereal vocals slicing through the static psych atmosphere.”
