    Usually, a cult is something you steer clear of, if you like to be a free thinker and are against brain washing, but this particular Cult is one you certainly want to gravitate towards. The rock band The Cult will release new music on November 16 thanks to innovative music capsules, heralding a new era of music delivery that will impact the way we hear music for years to come.

    Innovative music capsules? Let me explain. First, Capsule 2: New Blood Deep Cuts features new songs "Embers" and "Until The Light Takes Us," live recordings of some of the band's huge hits and an intimate look into The Cult's rehearsal space, with a never before seen warm-up performance of "Black Angel." Rather than revisit the traditional method of releasing a long form CD, the band is pioneering a new way of providing material. Capsules span multiple media formats including vinyl, digital, USB, CD and DVD formats, and can be purchased here.

    Frontman Ian Astbury explained in a statement: "We are stepping away from the conventional system. By including new music, live music and film, we are giving our fans the opportunity to own other creative visions. The Capsule is a way of delivering music in bites, quicker and fresher than in the context of an album format."

    Capsule 2: New Blood Deep Cuts features the lead track, "Embers," which will be available exclusively on iTunes beginning November 1 for two weeks, while iTunes' exciting new music-oriented social network site called Ping boasts an exclusive On Demand preview streaming of "Embers, the "Black Angel" rehearsal film and new band photos.

    The band's "L'America Tour" kicks off October 28 in Chicago. UK dates begin January 18, 2011 in Leeds. Fans are afforded the unique opportunity of leaving the venue each night after a Cult concert with a full recording of the show on a USB flash drive - to relive each incendiary moment.
