The Cure Set To Release New Album ''4:14 Scream'' And Embark On New Trilogy Concert
The Cure have announced plans to release their 14th studio album within the next few months alongside a series of live concert DVD’s to boot. Tentatively titled 4:14 Scream, the album sounds like a sequel or partner of sorts to the band’s thirteenth outing 4:13 Dream, which was released to a warm reception back in 2008.
Not a whole lot was revealed about the upcoming album save for the fact that it was recorded at the same time as the band’s previous record, however in addition to the planned release the band have also made plans for another Trilogy world tour, which would be the third of such so far, following gigs in 2002 and 2011.
The first tour consisted of the band performing their original album trilogy in Pornography, Disintegration and Bloodflowers, a series of album personal to leader Robert Smith, while the group delved even further into the past just 3 years ago with a set of gigs dedicated to their first three albums (debut Three Imaginary Boys was released all the way back as far as 1979).
This time around things seem more focused in a pop direction, with The Top, The Head On The Door and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me being played in their entirety, the likes of which include 80's classics such as ''Inbetween Days'', ''The Caterpillar'', ''Just Like Heaven'' and ''Close To Me''.
A return to our green pastures would surely be welcome following an mammoth set at Electric Picnic in 2012, when Smith & co. played a total of 39 tracks over nearly 4 hours.
