The label’s owner, Julian Casablancas, says Cerebral Ballzy are “probably the coolest band in the world at the moment, a truly legit modern hardcore/punk band, and by far my favorite. It’s beyond exciting to try and help them in any and all ways we can and we’re honored to put their deliriously great new record out on Cult Records.” The band’s new album, produced by TV on The Radio’s Dave Sitek will be out in early 2014, with more details to follow.
