The Cult unveil GOAT promo

The Cult

The Cult have released a video for their track GOAT.

It’s taken from the band’s latest album Hidden City, which was released in February. The promo stars MMA fighter Orlando Friol and was directed by Juan Azulay and shot in Florida.

Frontman Ian Astbury says: “The film depicts amateur mixed-martial-arts fighter Orlando Friol alongside his trainer and mentor Diego de Vera of Miami’s Knockout Zone Gym.

“The song’s title is an acronym for ‘Greatest Of All Time’. We were tapping into The Cult’s identification as cultural outsiders, revealing the mystique of a lone fighter who, through discipline and integrity, rises up against all odds.”

The Cult have a number of tour dates remaining in 2016, including support slots with the reunited Guns N’ Roses in Mexico City.
