Blah Vs. Blah: 5-A-Side Special

To coincide with the merch drop, we thought we would stage a little 5-a-side footy match for the Cult. As you can see from the photos below, it was a huge success and I doubt it will be long before you see some more familiar faces in the Premiership. All credit to Harvey for the photos (IG: @hwfpht).

Some good news amidst the current global shit show, as today marks the release of Black Josh's latest solo album. I say solo, but it is really a collaboration with fellow MCR resident and LEVELZ affiliate, Metrodome, who is at the helm for the production. If you've heard the singles in the run-up to the full release, you will already have a taste for the flavours that these two put together - namely bass-heavy bangers, but with enough variety to keep you hooked. A stack of tight features too, with Josh getting assists from Sleazy F, Lord Apex, Yibby, [KSR], Lunar C, Coops and more along the way. You can stream the album in full below and other streaming/download options are available from the usual spots. You can also cop a limited edition vinyl version over at the shop.
