Cloud Cult Coming to San Diego, Releasing DVD

If you read our Best of 2008 list, you may have noticed a little band called Cloud Cult on there. The prolific Minnesota collective has already released eight wildly creative albums—including the highly recommended The Meaning Of 8—so you have no excuse for not knowing/loving them yet. The band will soon be heading out on a tour which will take them to Coachella and, more importantly, to San Diego’s beloved Casbah on May 14th.

In conjunction with the upcoming tour, the band will also be releasing a career spanning-documentary on April 21st, entitled No One Said It Would Be Easy. According to our friend Gary:

No One Said It Would Be Easy is an intimate, inside look into the origin and development of the ethereal and epic Cloud Cult. The film envelops viewers into the story and people behind Cloud Cult. Serving as both an introduction and introspection meant for newcomers to the music and fans of the band alike, the film explores the emotional and philosophical underpinnings on which Cloud Cult was founded and continues to operate, namely those of love and hope.

Cloud Cult truly are a special band, and you should be sure to check them out, whether it be in concert or on new-fangled digital video disc. To help seal the deal, we’ve got a live video and tour dates for you after the jump.
