Sarah Kinsley announces UK tour dates and debut album

Cults have shared two tracks from the upcoming album – Left My Keys and Crybaby.

The roots of To The Ghosts date back to the pandemic when they wrote music on weekdays from 10am-5pm with no deadlines or distractions.  Cults recorded the album in Brian Oblivion’s apartment and travelled to Los Angeles in 2022 to celebrate with longtime producer and creative confidant Shane Stoneback who co-produced.  The album has been mixed by John Congleton and mastered by Heba Kadry.
