The show comes as the iconic Goth-rockers finalise work on their next album – the first since 2008’s ‘4:13 Dream’.
Discussing the record, frontman Robert Smith previously told NME: “It’s changing. It is a work in progress.
“We did three weeks in Rockfield Studios in Wales in the early part of the year to try and capture some genuine Welsh doom and gloom. It was sunny the entire time though, which was pretty disappointing. It only rained once in three weeks, which I think is a national record for Wales.”
He added: “We did about 17 songs and almost all of them were really downbeat and heavy. There were a handful of others, and I really shouldn’t say this because you’ll go ‘oh no’, but in my head I wanted to do two albums – one after another. One was gonna be upbeat and the other downbeat, but the upbeat one I’m not so sure about now.”
