With Choice of Weapon due out in May, The Cult have released a video for the album’s newest single, “For the Animals.”
From director Michelle Peerali, the clip stars actress Hanna Mosqueda and tells a tale of lost youth overwhelmed by her circumstances but rises up in the end.
Each member of the band also makes a cameo in the video.

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.”

Rollingstone.com has an exclusive stream of The Cult single “For the Animals,” which will be featured on the band’s upcoming May 22 album, Choice of Weapon.
“We’ve always been an outsider group; we don’t seem to fit completely with an existing genre,” said singer Ian Astbury. “‘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 Cult also caused a stir at the annual South by Southwest music festival, playing a show at the 25,000-capacity Auditorium Shores. The show was filmed for usage in Terrence Malick’s upcoming feature film Lawless, as well.
Check out footage of the band playing “Love Removal Machine” in the video below:
The Cult announced a U.K. tour earlier this week with The Mission and Killing Joke in September. Tickets go on sale today here. Additional tour dates this spring and summer can be found on the Cult website.
