Cult Records is set to release STRIKE GENTLY, the long-awaited second full length from critically acclaimed New York-based band the Virgins, on March 12th. The album was recorded in NYC at the East Village Recording Center underneath the site of the storied former rock club Brownies and produced by Johnny T Yerington and Gus Oberg as The Unicorn Parade. Cult Records founder Julian Casablancas notes, “When I first saw the Virgins I was psyched there was such a rad new band from NYC. Donald’s such an awesome guy and it’s great to meet someone who’s such a true artist. I think they’ve made a classic record and we’re really excited they chose to work with us.” Please see below for a full track list.

The forthcoming record follows up on the Virgins’ 2008 self-titled debut, which NME raved was “jam-packed with pop hits” and Entertainment Weekly called “punchy and slinky and over before you know it, but good, dirty fun while it lasts,” while SPIN noted that “these New York kids reflect the mirror-ball gleam of primo INXS and Emotional Rescue–era Rolling Stones onto the lives of today’s young, rich, and wasted.”

The group was started by frontman Donald Cumming in 2006 and features Max Kamins (bass), Xan Aird (guitar) and John Eatherly (drums). They have shared stages with Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Lou Reed, Sonic Youth and Patti Smith and have appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.” The single “Rich Girls” from their 2008 release was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Best Songs of 2008,” and they most recently released the single “Venus in Chains” earlier this year. The group currently on tour in South America, having just recently completed a pair of shows in Santiago, Chile. Please see below for a list of dates.
