With Choice of Weapon due out in May, The Cult have released a video for the album’s newest single, “For the Animals.”

In addition, the band announced the addition of a Los Angeles date to their summer North American concert tour, set to kick off May 25. The Cult wraps up the first leg of the tour with a headline show at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday, June 23.

Said guitarist Billy Duffy, “We are super excited to return to one of our favorite Los Angeles venues to debut, live in our hometown, some of the new songs from our new album, Choice of Weapon. The Palladium has hosted a few stellar Cult shows over the years, and this one, I can guarantee, will be up there with the best.”
