The Virgins

The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas has said he is “psyched” to have signed “rad” NYC quartet The Virgins as the first artists to his vanity label, Cult Records. Last heard circa their eponymous 2008 debut, the band will release their new LP, ‘Strike Gently’, on 18 Mar.

An oddly animated Casablancas says: “When I first saw The Virgins I was psyched there was such a rad new band from NYC. [Singer] Donald [Cumming] is such an awesome guy and it’s great to meet someone who’s such a true artist. I think they’ve made a classic record and we’re really excited they chose to work with us”.

Tracklisting:

Prima Materia
Wheel Of Fortune
Flashbacks, Memories, and Dreams
Figure On The Ice
Impressions Of You
What Good Is Moonlight?
