The Cure have announced that their fourteenth studio album will arrive sometime in the next few months, and will tentatively be titled 4:14 Scream.
News of the album, which was apparently recorded at the same time as 2008's 4:13 Dream, the band's last proper full-length, arrives along with details for a series of live DVDs and plans for additional “Trilogy” live shows.
The Cure last embarked on a Trilogy tour in 2011, where they played three classic albums, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), Seventeen Seconds (1980), and Faith (1981) in full at performances in New York, Los Angeles, and London, and, ten years earlier, toured Pornography (1982), Disintegration (1989), and Bloodflowers (2000).
This time around, the group will perform The Top (1984), The Head On The Door (1985), and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (1987). Dates have yet to be revealed, though, along with the Trilogy shows, The Cure are expected to tour extensively in 2014. So far, only a pair of London dates, March 28 and 29 at Royal Albert Hall, have been announced.
Along with album and tour news, the group have announced plans to release of series of live DVDs in the coming months, though no further details have been made available at this time. It's worth noting that the The Cure's debut album, Three Imaginary Boys, celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.
