Goth rock band The Cult formed from the ashes of the band Southern Death Cult by the vocalist Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy in 1983. The Cult's first album Dreamtime did relatively well in the but it was their second album Love (1985) that would prove to be their international breakthrough and spun two hit singles "Rain" and "She Sells Sanctuary". With their third album Electric (1987) The Cult began a change in sound from goth rock to hard rock which they made complete and reinforced on their fourth album Sonic Temple (1989). Since those early years the band has been through numerous line-up changes, three break-ups and as many reformations. They have continued to record and released four more albums, most recently Born Into This, however they have been unable to replicate the success of their late 80s heyday.
