Beggars Banquet will release Cult leader Ian Astbury's debut
solo disc early next year, around the same time it reissues the entire
Cult catalog, a label spokesperson said. Astbury recorded the debut,
Natural Born Guerrilla, in Palm Springs, Calif., in 1997, but the
album was never released by its original label. The singer recently
reunited with the Cult and toured. The group, which had disbanded in 1994,
plans to record a new album.
