New Cure Album

Published: 2004-04-22
The godfathers of goth rock will release their twelfth studio album on June 22nd. The Cure has been recording in London with Ross Robinson (Korn, At The Drive-In) in an attempt to give their newest album a heavier sound than their previous work. The as-yet-untitled album is planned to have fourteen brand new tracks. The Cure's last album, 'Bloodflowers' was released four years ago in 2000. The release of new material is certainly a far cry from the break-up rumours that plagued the band just a few years ago

After the album is released, the Cure is planning to tour the U.S. The band is also scheduled to appear at Coachella on Sunday May 2nd. Tickets for the final date of the festival are currently still available.

Fronted by one of the most ghoulish singers since Alice Cooper, many of today's shock rockers can trace their roots directly back to The Cure. Robert's Smith eternally despairing voice defined a subculture and continues to represent many of today's youth. Smith even guested on pop-punk band Blink 182's newest album, providing lead vocals for 'All of This', sounding just as gloomy as ever.

The Cure first emerged in 1979 with debut album 'Three Imaginary Boys', an album that contains more upbeat songs than anyone would be inclined to associate with the band. With their second album the Cure showed hints of the dark, gloomy band that they would become, eventually releasing such hits as 'Just Like Heaven' and 'Love Song'.
