Robert Smith and his merry band release new album next month...

Goth legends The Cure release their 13th studio album ‘Bloodflowers’ on February 14 as a special Valentine’s gift for fans.

According to the band, the album completes a trilogy started in 1982 with the LP ‘Pornography’ and continued with the 1989 release of ‘Disintegration’.

‘Bloodflowers’ was co-produced by leadsinger and mainman ROBERT SMITH and was recorded last year in London and Surrey by a Cure line-up which has miraculously stayed intact for the past five years. They are Smith on voice and guitar, SIMON GALLUP on bass, PERRY BAMONTE on guitar, ROGER O’DONNELL on keyboards and JASON COOPER on drums.

It’s hoped the band will play a handful of promotional dates around Europe and the US around the album’s release, then a full tour is planned for later in the year. Details have yet to be announced.
