The Cure have confirmed what fans have long been clamoring for.
A new album.
In the same week the Goth legends were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, their frontman Robert Smith gave an exciting update about their new album.
In an interview with Sirius XM, Smith said, “We’re going in about six weeks time to finish off what will be our first album in more than a decade.”
The Cure’s last album was 2008’s 4:13 Dream.
“It’s very exciting times for us all around,” Smith added.
Smith has indicated the new album has a title, but he’s not revealed it yet. It’s believed the new Cure album will hit shelves in late Spring.
The Cure have a busy Spring and Summer season ahead of them, as they’ll be playing some of the biggest music festivals in the world. The band will be traveling to Russia, Italy, South Africa, Denmark, Serbia and Greece.
Additionally, an unconfirmed report indicates the band could be headlining Glastonbury.
