Cult Of Youth Detail 'Love Will Prevail', Unveil New Single
Brooklyn's Cult of Youth have delivered two luscious LPs touching on post-punk and roustabout, Pogues-style stomps since forming a few years back, and the group will deliver their third full-length this fall. Titled Love Will Prevail, the record hits retailers September 4 through Sacred Bones.

The follow-up to last year's self-titled set, Love Will Prevail was recorded by band leader Sean Ragon in a recording studio he built in the back of his Heaven Street record store in Brooklyn. A press release explains that the vocalist performed five different instruments on Love Will Prevail, but also had some friends help him out during recording sessions. Glenn Maryansky contributed drums, Christiana Key played violin, and Beverly Hames, who previously screeched in New York thrashers Battletorn, added vocals.

The album is said to work on the psych-folk foundations the band had previously laid while tipping its hat to artists like Austria's Nový Svět, Miles Davis, and the Velvet Underground. Ragon has also apparently pushed politics to the forefront of his lyrics with a set of songs that serve as "a plea for peace in a world gone mad."
