CULT OF YOUTH

(Jungtinės Amerikos Valstijos)

Formed almost 20 years ago by Sean Ragon, the Brooklyn-based band released 4 albums and soon earned a cult status in the neofolk and post-industrial music community. The quintet is exploring the darker side of the human life and doesn’t shy away from well-deserved comparisons with neofolk classics Death in June or Current 93.

After years of touring, the band holed up in a mountain studio in Vermont with no specific plan or deadline. This year, after a break of 8 years, the new pagan post-punk album “With Open Arms” was released, marking an even darker and more psychedelic phase in the band’s history.

In 2023, only a few Cult Of Youth live shows are planned. One of them will happen on the MJR XXIII festival! So lace up your boots and let’s meet up on Friday night at Dūburio stage.
