The Cure likely to air brand new material at Scottish gig

Fans of veteran goth rockers The Cure could hear new material from the legendary band when they play at Glasgow Summer Sessions in August.

Frontman Robert Smith has confirmed that The Cure have finished recording their as-yet-untitled new album – the band’s first studio release in over 10 years and their 14th studio album.

Speaking about their recent shows on Cape Town radio station Cape Talk, Smith said: “We’ve enjoyed it and we’ve just recorded a new album for the first time in 10 years.”

The singer added that he was “still doing this for the right reasons” and that, while the group might cover different styles of music, but “because it’s us doing it, it sounds us.”

In December 2018, Smith gave fans an update on the record, saying they were close to finishing the album. He also said that being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame had inspired them to complete work on their first album since 2008’s ‘4:13 Dream’.

Later this month, The Cure will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame.

Nine Inch Nails singer Trent Reznor has been confirmed to introduce the band at the Cleveland ceremony.
