After being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame this weekend, The Cure has revealed some new details on their forthcoming album release in a new interview with Rolling Stone.
The Cure’s Robert Smith spoke of the eerie new record, explaining that it will be “so dark” and “incredibly intense.” “A key part of it was everyone being away from home, being away from everything they loved, and being in one place at the same time,” Smith explained in the interview. “So for the first time in 20 years, we went into a studio – we actually went into the studio where [Queen] did ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ funnily enough. It’s a great studio in the middle of nowhere. We just played music for three weeks. And it’s great. I know everyone says that. But it really is fucking great.”

Smith continued on to explain that the record will likely be a huge hit with their hardcore fans, while infuriating everyone else. “At my age, I’m still doom and gloom,” he explains.
Although The Cure is set to play festivals like Glastonbury, they likely won’t be playing too many of the new tunes, but you can expect a potential release date for the new album in “I don’t know, October? Halloween! Come On!” according to Smith.
