Initially released in 1989, Sonic Temple proved to be a pivotal second for each band and the broader rock scene.  Produced by the legendary Bob Rock, Sonic Temple had 4 chart-topping singles; “Fire Woman”, “Edie (Ciao Baby)”, “Sun King” and “Sweet Soul Sister”.

In a current interview concerning the album, Ian Astbury defined how the band introduced together onerous rock and indie rock to create the distinctive, game-changing sounds on Sonic Temple. “We wanted to retain our core DNA as we went deeper into psych and hard rock influences. It was a complete immersion for me into art, film, music, poetry and literature, weaving those influences into what was to become Sonic Temple. The band was becoming more popular. We were in uncharted waters. Most of the bands we had come up with had split up or fallen off. We were accelerating. There was no real time to breathe. We were forming new allegiances and breaking the glass ceiling of ‘the indie outsider.’”

The album catapulted The Cult into celebrity standing and remains their most commercially successful release. It has bought over 1.5 million copies within the US alone, and was declared platinum in 1990. It made it to #10 on the Billboard charts, and the aforementioned songs all remain rock-radio staples to this present day.

The set record for the “A Sonic Temple” tour attracts from The Cult’s 10 studio albums with the centerpiece being an excellent set that’s targeted on the core songs from Sonic Temple; a few of these songs haven’t been carried out because the album was originally released. Every show will probably be a gathering and celebration for Cult fans–a chance to return together for one night time–an occasion that shall be memorable for all who attend. As Billy Duffy said concerning the tour in a current interview, “I’d like fans to not only allow themselves a little indulgence into maybe simpler happier times of the late 80s for a few hours at a ST19 show, but also be happy that the music is now really their possession, not ours, and to do with it what they will.”

The BOX SET accommodates three pieces of vinyl and a cassette plus tour memorabilia and ephemera (duplicate of unique laminate, backstage cross, unique press releases, label copy and extra). It’s numbered and limited to 3000 items worldwide and incorporates 40 tracks, four of that are previously unreleased. LP1+2 include the album as originally released. LP3 incorporates Stay At Wembley recorded by the BBC, and the included cassette accommodates limited-release demos. Four of the stay tracks are previously unreleased.
