Queen Cult are set to take their listeners on a musical journey with new E.P “For Now, Not Forever”

Queen Cult are quickly imprinting their vibrant personalities and music on the alternative rock scene. Hailing from Macclesfield, the three-pieces’s larger-than-life sound has received praise from tastemakers, and gathered them a global fanbase. After a hiatus, Queen Cult returned with their debut EP ‘Woman That I Know’ in January 2022, which immediately sparked interest. Further singles ‘Beautiful Psycho’, ‘Better Believe It’ and ‘It Matters To Me’ followed in April, September and November respectively, gathering them further support from the music industry.

Their latest E.P “For Now, Not Forever” is their most eclectic release yet. A four track offering, the E.P is sure to take you on a musical journey and fully immerse you. Fans are treated to a new track on the E.P entitled “Anxious Delight.” “Anxious Delight” comes with a more pop-infused sound – featuring a vibrant melting pot of impactful synths, divine backing vocals and heavy-hitting drums. Tracks such as single “Lollipop” fully showcase their distinctive sound – with the track featuring thrashing drums, heavy guitars and infectious vocal melodies.

Speaking about the E.P, lead singer Maisie Johnson says:

This EP is a collection of songs written over the last two years, which have been really challenging for the band and also on a personal level. So many personal moments were captured in the songs and it doesn’t necessarily mean they correlate at all. It’s almost as if as a band we’ve shed a few skins during this time and are about to emerge into something stronger. We look forward now knowing which path we want to go down and clearer on the journey ahead.

The front cover of the EP is a photo I took of Jodrell Bank telescope in Cheshire which is close to where we live. It was on a spring eve during lockdown, about the same time I wrote the song Anxious Delight. A song that resonates with its title and the imagery in a very literal way. Jodrell bank looked so in and out of place at the same time, like how I felt.”

Queen Cult will be playing in the following venues to support their second EP release:

February 17th  Manchester, YES Basement

February 23rd Portsmouth, Edge of the Wedge

February 24th  Bristol, The Lanes


We can’t wait to see where they’ll take this – they’re not a band to be missed.
