The Cult will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their Death Cult early incarnation of the group — and their post-punk origins — with a one-off L.A. performance and a U.K. tour. The shows, titled Death Cult 8323, will be centered around Death Cult and their eponymous EPs, but will also "boast a setlist that spans the three phases of the band, from Southern Death Cult, to Death Cult, and the Cult's first two albums: Dreamtime (1984) and Love (1985)."

The L.A. show will go down at The Theatre at Ace Hotel on October 23rd with darkwave favorites Cold Cave opening. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, August 18th at 10 a.m. PT.

Meanwhile, The Cult and Cold Cave have other West Coast shows scheduled in October, and those are listed below, as well.
