From Ritual to Romance - LP 2006
The Vultures are Circling - LP 2010



The Static Cult is a UK alternative rock band formed in 2006 in Glasgow, Scotland. The band is Jimmy (Guitar and Vocals), Doog (Guitar and Vocals), James (bass guitar and backing vocalist) and Jamie (drums and percussion).

The band are due to head to USA in the Fall of 2010 to record their upcoming album "The Vultures are Circling".

The band headed to Los Angeles at the end of 2006 to record their debut album “:From Ritual to Romance” produced and engineered by Gilby Clarke (ex Guns 'n' Roses) at his studio. Joby Ford - guitarist with L.A punk rock band The Bronx, not only guests on a couple of tracks on the album but also wrote the track “Kill The Lights” exclusively for the band. Canadian artist Heather Hannoura, who is best known for her work with Alkaline Trio, A.F.I., Green Day, My Chemical Romance and Rancid amongst others, hung out with the band during the recording sessions to get a feel for the album artwork she would later design. The album was mastered by Howie Weinberg at Masterdisk NY.

The band, who have recently been immortlized by getting mentioned in Mick O' Shea's new Guns n Roses book combine sophisticated, impassioned punk rock for those not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Blistering with energy and exploding with attitude. The Static Cult's bread and butter is their huge, soaring, Nirvana-esque power riffs entwined with Charles Bukowski-inspired lyrics of decay and addiction, authentic imperfection at its finest mixing enduring melodies, undeniable hooks and killer choruses. Destined to be one of the most talked about bands in 2010.

With all their cannons in place, it’s no wonder they find themselves with huge expectations for their future as an alternative punk rock band that does things its way. The Static Cult hopes to hit full stride in 2010 establishing the band as a national presence. They have defied media conventions by rising up with a balance of commercial-readiness and uncommon street cred born from the clash of bursting talent and do-or-die determination. The band most likely to rise from the clubs and onto bigger stages and TV screens the world over, word is slowly spreading.

The Static Cult are wired up, powered on, and ready to detonate. Get on board, or get out of the way!
