Beggars Banquet has just released a series of 30th anniversary reissues of The Cult’s smash 1989 album Sonic Temple, and we’re thrilled to be able to give away a copy of the new 2LP vinyl reissue — signed by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, no less — to one lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs reader.

The Bob Rock-produced album, which hit No. 10 on the Billboard charts and features the singles “Fire Woman,” “Sun King,” “Edie (Ciao Baby)” and “Sweet Soul Sister,” is being reissued in deluxe CD and vinyl box sets to mark its 30th anniversary.

Beggars is providing Slicing Up Eyeballs with a signed copy of the 2LP set, which includes the full album as well as its six B-sides spread across to pieces of black vinyl, to give away to one winner in the U.S.
