Robert Smith announced that The Cure would go on the road in 2016, which got a lot of fans thinking if a new album will be released soon.
An official announcement from The Cure’s official website revealed that the band would go on tour and play at least 25 shows in North America that could start in May and go on for the entire year.
Furthermore, official announcement of the tour and possible new album could be revealed in January 2016.
“The Cure will be playing a 25 date tour of North America in 2016, with Scottish band The Twilight Sad as support – the Hollywood Bowl Los Angeles May 22nd, UIC Pavilion Chicago June 10th and Madison Square Garden New York City June 18th are the first three dates to be announced – full details of all shows will be revealed January 2016”
In a recent NME report, Smith confirmed that the band would have a new line up but is expected to play new songs and old songs from their previous albums.
“There’s new stuff that we’re doing with this line-up and stuff we finished with the old line up,” Smith said.
“A lot of stuff happened, unfortunately, with the last line-up of the band. People forget sometimes that even when you get older, when you play music with people, there’s a very intense relationship there and when that breaks down then it’s very difficult to just pretend it doesn’t matter.”
Furthermore, the possible new album from The Cure is rumored to have a mix of new songs and unreleased tracks that were meant for their 2008 release “4:13 Dreams.”
“The last line-up, there were a number of reasons why I felt unable to complete what we were doing,” he said. “It was impossible to just get another line-up and bang out the songs we didn’t release; it would have been wrong.”
