Johnny Marr has been known to invite his lifelong friend Billy Duffy onstage during his solo shows, and a few nights ago in Manchester, The Cult guitarist returned the favor, bringing the ex-Smiths guitarist out in Manchester to play “Rain,” off his band’s 1985 album Love.

As we reported last month, The Cult is reissuing its third album Electric in an expanded set paired with Peace — the aborted Love follow-up the band abandoned in favor of the Rick Rubin-produced hard-rock album — and Beggars Archive has now confirmed that the release, Electric Peace, is now due out next month.
The Cult today announced that it will perform its third album Electric on tour in the U.S. and U.K. this year as news also emerged that the 1987 hard-rock record will receive an expanded reissue that pairs it with Peace, the follow-up to Love the band ultimately abandoned in favor of recording Electric with producer Rick Rubin.
The Cult have been teasing fans the last couple days via social media that they plan to announce a new tour called “Electric 13” on Monday — a trek that presumably will find Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy revisiting their 1987 hard-rock turn Electric on stage each night. The tour is poised to come to the U.S. and U.K.

Demon Music Group late next month will reissue all six albums from the Roddy Frame-led Scottish indie-pop act Aztec Camera in 2CD and single-disc expanded editions, each featuring an assortment of bonus cuts including non-album singles, B-sides, remixes and, in the case of the band’s penultimate album, a full bonus live disc.
