Don't forget that there are still more show announcements coming soon. Stay alert. More Cure shows are on the way!

2 US festivals will be announcing their lineups over the next few days, Seattle's Bumbershoot on May 2nd, and Austin City Limits on May 6th/7th. While no solid rumors have connected The Cure to either of these festivals, it's something to keep an eye on.

Update (05/02/13): No Cure for Bumbershoot. Sorry, Seattle/Pacific Northwest. Over to you, Austin City Limits. Don't you let us down, too.

Cure albums as books

"I thought I'd write and let you know about a series of prints I've made of three of The Cure's albums as if they'd been written as a series of books. I've taken Disintegration, Faith and The Head on the Door and created a mini-library for each, with each track as its own novel. Here's what I mean - this is the Faith print. You can see the other two in my Etsy shop here." (Thanks Simon)
