Cloud Cult is an experimental chamber rock band from the Midwest who has maintained a decade and a half career by remaining completely independent. They’ve sold more than 100,000 albums via their own label, Earthology Records, which was created by singer/songwriter Craig Minowa in the late 90s out of what he called “necessity,” due to the fact that there simply weren’t options for environmentally friendly CD manufacturing in the industry at that time. Cloud Cult was at the forefront of the “green” movement, helping co-develop the now wildly popular recycled paperboard CD cases while also creating models for zero net greenhouse gas production for touring bands.

Love is the band’s 9th full-length album and is the follow up to 2010’s Light Chasers. Cloud Cult will support the release with a North American tour in March thru May 2013, including performances at this year’s SXSW Festival. Alone with the new album, the feature length documentary on Cloud Cult “No One Said It Would Be Easy” will debut in early 2013 on Netflix, iTunes, and Amazon. A full length biography about Cloud Cult’s Journey as a band by author Mark Allister is slated for release in late 2013.
