Cult released the album Sonic Temple 30 years ago today (April 10, 1989).
Led by singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, British rockers The Cult had great success with the album Sonic Temple, which saw the band continue in their hard rock direction as on their previous album Electric. It would contain some of the band's most popular songs including "Fire Woman", "Sun King", "Edie (Ciao Baby)", and "Sweet Soul Sister". The album was The Cult's highest charting in the U.S. where it peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200 charts, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in 1993.
