The Cure have announced plans to release a new album this year (2014).

The LP will be the band's 14th studio album and was recorded at the same as their last release, 2008's '4:13 Dream', and is tentatively titled '4:14 Scream'. In addition to the new album, the band added that they will also be releasing a series of live concert DVDs this year.

The Cure also say they are also planning on taking another 'Trilogy' style on the road later this year. The original tour took place in 2002 and saw the band headline a string of festivals and gigs in Brussels and Berlin in which they played the albums 'Pornography', 'Disintegration' and 'Bloodflowers' in entirety. The second tour under the title in 2011 called 'Reflections' saw 'Three Imaginary Boys', 'Seventeen Seconds' and 'Faith' performed in full.

The Cure will play two nights at London's Royal Albert Hall next month (March 28 and 29) in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, as part of the annual gig series which is this year curated by Roger Daltrey.

Also on the bill for the series of gigs, which will take place between March 24 and 30, are Suede, Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini and OneRepublic. Alongside musical performances, Daltrey has also announced an evening of comedy featuring Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Patrick Kielty, Rob Beckett and Hal Cruttenden.

The Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall shows are as follows:

Ed Sheeran (March 24)
