(TRR) – The Cure will be releasing a new album in 2019. It will be the band’s first full-length release since 2008’s 4:13 Dream. The album was released via Suretone/Geffen and debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200.

Frontman Robert Smith revealed news of the new album in an interview with SiriusXM Volume‘s “Debatable” show in New York. Smith was discussing the recent announcement that The Cure would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. The band will join fellow rock artists Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, The Zombies, Radiohead, and pop icon Janet Jackson in the Rock Hall Class of 2019.

“Primarily because of the Meltdown [Festival] thing, seeing all these new bands inspired me to do something new,” Smith told co-hosts Mark Goodman and Alan Light. “We’re going in about six weeks time to finish up what will be our first album in more than a decade. It’s very exciting times for us all around.”

Next summer, The Cure are slated to play several festivals including Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and Glasgow Summer Sessions.
