Get Ready for it
The Holidays are just around the corner, and Robert Smith is preparing a great gift for all fans of The Cure. Coming a long way from their debut album “Three Imaginary Boys” in 1979, to the globally acclaimed “Disintegration” in 1989, The Cure now wants to mark the end of the 2010s and the beginning of another decade with a new highly-rumored album.
Not one, but Three!
According to an interview by the Mexican show Zocalo, Robert Smith said back in October that there are actually three new albums in the making! The Cure is no stranger to releasing albums rather continuously – since 1979, the band has released 40 (between studio and live sessions), 37 Compilation albums, and counting all music releases they have had over 200 of them.
According to Zocalo’s interview, Smith has taken inspiration from his most sincere feelings from the losses of his mom, his father, and his brother to accomplish the first of the three new albums. The second album is aimed to be recorded live for the performance and interpretation that Smith wants from it. And finally, the third album is “crazy” filled with noises from his music career.
The Cure through the decades…
The Cure formed in1796 in Crawley, West Sussex. Thanks to Robert Smith’s work, the group has stood firm through many different band-member changes and the pass of time. Starting with the emerging style of Gothic Rock, Smith decided to give The Cure a more commercial spin helping the following albums to reach high spots on album and singles charts.
The band’s last release was 2008’s “4:13 Dream” album, and even though it has been over a decade already, the group is still as relevant as ever. The fact that The Cure has been enjoying the last couple of years full of live shows as headliners in music festivals around Europe, North America, and Latin America, is proof of how significant the band has been for the past four decades up until this point.
The Cure was just inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April this same year. The band is one of the biggest influences in post-punk, new wave, goth, alternative, shoegaze, and post-rock. We are all excited to hear new sounds from the band and what better way than with three new albums in the upcoming months.
