​​​​​​With their debut album on the horizon, the summer festival season looming ahead and global conquest on their minds, 2016 will be a seminal year for Cult Called Man. Conceived in a Dublin psychiatric ward in 2012, the art rock quintet have always held an appreciation for the strange side of the human condition. ‘When we play, it's a church. We preach, and people either get on board or  get freaked out.'

In the wake of 2014's ‘Mr Wednesdae E.P’

recordings, the Cult cloistered themselves

within Tyrellstown’s Camelot Studios, to

write and record their debut album, due

for release later this year. With a sound

that  evokes equal parts  of David Bowie

and The Muppets, Cult Called Man's

distinctive sound singles them out

amongst a music scene that is

increasingly relying on imitation

rather  than innovation to lead them

along the path to success.

With standout preformances at

Electric Picnic’s Salty Dog and Trailer

Park stages, along with appearances at

nearly every major Irish Festival and a

support slot with Anton Newcombe in 

Dublin’s Sugar Club,

Cult Called Man stand poised

to bring their live spectacle

to an even greater audience

this year.
