The Cure Announces New Album for Release in a Few Months
Known for hits like “Just Like Heaven” and “Friday I’m in Love,” the Cure last released a full-length studio album in 2008, called 4:13 Dream. Although they’ve toured in the time being, news of an album hadn’t surfaced, until an announcement about their upcoming Teenage Cancer Trust gigs.
According to a report from The Guardian, the group led by Robert Smith has a follow-up planned, tentatively titled 4:14 Scream. An official release date hasn’t been announced, but the group says it will come out over the next few months.
That isn’t all fans should expect from the quintessential Goth band. In addition to the album, a concert DVD is expected to come out this year, while another Trilogy-type performance may occur. Previously, the Cure has done two Trilogy concerts: one in the early ‘00s for Pornography, Disintegration, and Bloodflowers and another set in 2011 for Boys Don’t Cry, Three Imaginary Boys, and Faith. The third group will include Head on the Door, The Top, and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me.
4:13 Dream did modestly on the charts and generated four singles in the process: “The Only One,” “Freakshow,” “Sleep When I’m Dead,” and “The Perfect Boy.”
Since their last release, the band’s lineup changed yet again, with guitarist Porl Thompson leaving. The current lineup includes Smith, longtime bassist Simon Gallup, keyboard player Roger O’Donnell, drummer Jason Cooper, and new guitarist Reeves Gabrels.
