Karl Marx once said that the religion is the opium of the people. In the case of Jonestown we all wish it was just that.
With "Go Outside" the astonishing duo Cults (guitarist Brian Oblivion and singer Madeline Follin) cuddle our ears reminding us of something we should never forget...

Peoples Temple Agricultural Project was an intentional community in northwestern Guyana formed by the Peoples Temple, a cult led by Jim Jones. It became internationally notorious in 1978, when 909 members (234 were children) died in Jonestown from cyanide poisoning, in an event termed "revolutionary suicide" by Jones and some members on an audio tape of the event and in prior discussions.
This is the single greatest loss of American civilian life in a non-natural disaster until the events of September 11, 2001.
