Cults is an American indie pop band formed in New York City in 2010. The band first came to prominence when they posted a three song EP, Cults 7″, on their Bandcamp page.Cults formed in 2010 while guitarist Brian Oblivion and singer Madeline Follin were students at The New School. They began making music in their spare time to share with their friends.[citation needed] Madeline had previously recorded with punk band Youth Gone Mad on the album Touching Cloth. Cults released an EP on Forrest Family Records, Cults 7″, with the track “Go Outside” recorded by Paul Kostabi at Thunderdome Studios. They toured supporting the Willowz (Richie Follin’s Band) with overlapping members for six months before signing to ITNO/SONY. Their song “Go Outside” had a video made for it which starred Emma Roberts and Dave Franco.

Their self-titled debut album, Cults, was released on June 7, 2011, by Columbia Records imprint In the Name Of run by Lily Allen.

In 2011 Cults collaborated with the group Superhuman Happiness on a version of the track “Um Canto De Afoxé para o Bloco Do Ilê” for the Red Hot Organisation’s most recent charity album Red Hot+Rio 2. The album is a follow-up to the 1996 Red Hot + Rio. Proceeds from sales will be donated to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues. The band was chosen to perform at the ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror festival curated by ATP & Portishead in September 2011 in Asbury Park, New Jersey,[7] and also by Battles to perform at the ATP Nightmare Before Christmas festival that they co-curate in December 2011 in Minehead, England.
