Cult of Youth’s new album Final Days is on the horizon, it’s being released on November 11th, just two years after their acclaimed Love Will Prevail LP. Final Days feels like a full realization of the project, it’s everything Cult of Youth has been moving towards for the past seven years – post-industrial, post-punk, and post-enlightenment.

Sean Ragon has been active in the DIY punk, industrial and experimental music communities on the east coast for over 15 years while also running a record store and label in Brooklyn (Heaven Street and Blind Prophet Records, respectively). He has been recording under the moniker of Cult of Youth for the last five years. Their last album, produced by Chris Coady, was a huge leap forward for the band, which has expanded to a four piece. It landed them on tours with Zola Jesus, Cold Cave and Iceage last Summer and caused quite a stir; not only among more indie-centric press outlets such as Pitchfork and Stereogum, but with underground publications such as Heathen Harvest and Special Interests magazines as well.

The great Maynard James Keenan is back! Unfortunately not with a new record from his visionary rock band Tool. As the members of Tool try to get on the same page fans are left with a new release from Keenan’s solo project Puscifer; a group that has remained active since the late 2007 release of their debut V is for Vagina. Releasing various remix albums and EPs along the way, Keenan has finally readied Puscifer’s sophomore record Conditions of My Parole, due out on October 18th.
