The Cure is releasing a new album, touring its old albums

The Cure will release its fourteenth studio album later this year. 4:14 Scream will be out at some yet-to-be-determined point in the next few months; it was recorded at the same time as 2008’s 4:13 Dream, making the tunes at least six years old. Unfortunately, there’s precious little information available beyond that. Not unlike Mean Girls' Gretchen Wieners, Robert Smith is good at keeping secrets; that's why his hair's so big.

The band has announced that it will be releasing a live concert DVD simultaneously, and that it will also be doing a number of upcoming shows. But instead of focusing on the new material, like The Cure's past "Trilogy" tours in 2002 and 2011, they’ll be dedicated to playing three of the group’s older albums in their entirety—this time The Top, The Head On The Door, and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me.
