The Cult – The Artist/s
The Cult are a British rock band formed in 1983. Before settling on their current name in January 1984, the band performed under the name Death Cult, which was an evolution of the name of lead singer Ian Astbury’s previous band Southern Death Cult. They gained a dedicated following in the United Kingdom in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band, with singles such as “She Sells Sanctuary”, before breaking into the mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s establishing themselves as a hard rock band with singles such as “Love Removal Machine” and “Fire Woman”. Since the initial formation of Southern Death Cult in Bradford in 1981, the band have had various line-ups; the longest-serving members are Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, who are the band’s two songwriters. The Cult relocated to Los Angeles, California, before breaking up in 1995, due to internal conflicts. The band reunited in 1999 and released a few albums before going on hiatus in 2002. They returned in 2006 to perform a series of worldwide tours, and have since released three more studio albums.

Guitarist, Astbury claims the eponymous “fire woman” is a universal symbol, along the lines of a primary element.
