English rock mainstays The Cult recently announced a new album, Under the Midnight Sun, which the band will release on October 7.

It was previewed with a stylish video for “Give Me Mercy,” which very much finds Ian Astbury, Billy Duffy and the band in classic form:

“I was absolutely enamored with this piece of music Billy had written, and it perfectly fit these thoughts I’d been having about our culture’s need to move past assumptions of duality. We need new language because words can’t express where we’re going,” said Astbury in a statement.

Duffy added: “‘Give Me Mercy’ has all the hallmarks of the new classic Cult to my ears … fresh yet familiar.”
