Experimental Post-Hardcore phenoms Cult Leader dropped their sophomore LP, “A Patient Man”, today under their Label Deathwish. Following their explosive debut album, “Lightless Walk,” from 2015, A Patient Man picks up right where the band left off with a massive yet melancholic dive into the mind of lead vocalist, Anthony Lucero.
The album revolves around Lucero’s complex relationship with his faith, and the way it was shaken by the churches he grew up in as a kid in Salt Lake City. It is obvious the lead singer has a tumultuous relationship with the institutionalization of religion, but the latest release serves more as a cathartic coming to terms with his experience. In a crushing way, “A Patient Man” provides an optimistic perspective on the development of faith, with an overriding message that although you cannot shake your past, there is always a way to move on to better things. The band dives deep into how they developed the record in a terrific interview with Revolver, which can be found here.
Cult Leader will be at The Satellite on December 10th with Echo Beads and God Mother, find your tickets here and check out the new record below.
