Draper plays the majority of the instruments on Cult Leader Tactics 11-tracks, including guitars, drum machines and synthesisers, on an album produced with long-time collaborator, acclaimed producer Paul ‘P-Dub’ Walton at the latter’s Loft Studios, with additional engineering by Scott Knapper.

Cult Leader Tactics will be available as a 4CD, 60-page hardback self-help manual, and a limited edition single gatefold Indie special with a bonus 7” single featuring a collaboration with Steven Wilson, as a gatefold single LP, a gatefold single LP indie-only release, comes with a bonus 7” featuring a second collaboration with Steven Wilson, a gatefold single coloured LP, digipack CD and digital.
