Published Aug 26, 2008After countless delays, the Cure have given their long-awaited new studio album a release date, as well as a name. On October 13, the pop goth vets will drop what they are calling 4:13 Dream, which will mark their first full-length since 2004s The Cure. But considering all the setbacks this new record has had, and a post on the Cures website saying the album will be released on "October 13th... We think, its hard to believe this is all set in stone.
The release, if it happens, will follow the bands recent singles campaign, which kicked off back in May. Through the project, the band have produced four singles "The Only One," "Freakshow," "Sleep When I'm Dead" and "The Perfect Boy." On September 13, the Cure plan to wrap up the campaign with the release of a remix EP titled Hypnagogic States, which features re-workings of the four singles by, um, 30 Seconds to Mars, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, among others.
No tracklisting has been announced yet for 4:13 Dream, which will be released by Suretone/Geffen, but there is one for Hypnagogic States. Here it is, Jared Leto and all:
1. "The Only One (Remixed by 30 Seconds to Mars)
2. "Freakshow (Remixed by AFIs Jade Puget)
3. "Sleep When Im Dead (Remixed by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance and Julien-K)
4. "The Perfect Boy (Remixed by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and Patrick Stump)
5. "Exploding Head Syndrome" (All four singles remixed by 65 Days Of Static)
