Jape Perätalo, lead singer and main songwriter of the band, stated: "With CULT we return to our roots. In our previous album 'Samsara' experimented a lot with our sound and influences, now it's time to return to the melancholy, heavy riffs and dark that characterized us in our beginnings, CULT be the most melancholy and dark album that has made To / Die / For in its history. We hope that the launch of long-awaited CULT call our first big tour in Latin America, we will wait for us for you! "

Today the band is formed by the founders and Juppe Sutela Perätalo Jape, That Viren, Matti Huopainen and the newly integrated bassist Samuel Schildt.
In early 2014, the band announced its alliance with the Peruvian agency Eternal Symphony Entertainment for the efforts of representation, management and booking in the territory of Latin America. It is expected that the first major Latin American tour of the band is carried out in late 2015, visiting Mexico again and for the first time, Central and South America.
