The Cult frontman Ian Astbury says his band intended to tap into a primal power on "For the Animals," a track from their forthcoming album Choice of Weapon. "While the Cult have always been open to a wide range of influences, some people feel the need to pigeonhole us," says Astbury. "We've always been an outsider group; we don't seem to fit completely with an existing genre. 'For the Animals' reflects the sentiment that we are a raw, visceral animal, independent and beholden to no one. We celebrate that aspect that is also rising in the culture. We go where nature takes us." The album will be in stores on May 22nd, but you can stream this track today.
