Today, Billy Duffy, guitarist of The Cult called WMMR to talk about their new record, the upcoming tour and a whole lot more. Their new CD, Choice Of Weapon, drops on May 22nd and they will be at The Electric Factory Rockin' Philly on June 10th with Icarus Line and Against Me as the opening acts. Billy spoke openly about the new record as well as bringing in Bob Rock to finish the record when they hit a wall. Has Billy Duffy ever written a Cult lyric? The answer is in the interview. Billy also shares what we can expect from The Cult live on this tour. The fans are in for a real treat. Billy also revealed the first four songs Billy and Ian ever wrote together. It was great chatting with him and seeing them live will be awesome. Get more info about The Cult here. And their Facebook link is here. The Cult will also be playing live on Jimmy Kimmel, May 18th at midnight. Thanks for listening,

Stream the chat now and get your tickets for Mayhem HERE. We'll see ya at the SBC on Friday August 1st!

 

Kenny Wayne Shepherd stopped by our studios with Noah Hunt before their sold out show at the Keswick Theatre with the Experience Hendrix Tour. We hear they'll be back in town by the summertime... Listen to our chat to find out more about that, plus the new KWS album on the horizon, and how Jimi Hendrix influenced Kenny as a young blues guitarist.
