Cult Leader performing A Patient Man

Revisiting CULT LEADER’s A Patient Man in order to put this announcement together has been nothing short of a joy. The album which is now an unfathomable five years old still sounds as vital as the first time we heard it. The head spinning combination of sludge, metal and hardcore make for a disorienting and truly captivating listen. It is heaviness tangled up in a frenzied mesh of visceral discordance, with gentler passages only adding to the album’s ominous overtones – in short, it’s a delight! All this to say, at long last, Cult Leader will be making their Roadburn debut, and they will be playing A Patient Man in its entirety. 

May this be the start of the renewed road to Cult Leader becoming the absolute sensation they deserve to be.  It seems like only yesterday that we last saw them live; their chaotic live show impressed upon our memories, the vision of their frenetic performance branded on our retinas. What would five years of pent up energy do to a band that was already so electrifying live? Join us in April, and we’ll find out together. 

Of their upcoming Roadburn debut, the band tell us: “We have the utmost respect for what Roadburn is and what it adds to the world of music. We couldn’t be more honored to be a part of it this year.”

The honour is all ours. See you in April.
