Biography

Originally a school band, The Cure rose from the ashes of punk to ride the new wave of indie guitar bands into the 1980s and beyond. Cloaked in dark clothes and pale gothic gloom, their oddball pop sensibilities and an ear for the sweetest melodies have perversely clashed with their post-punk roots, gentle romanticism and deadpan vulnerability. Making their name as a support band for Siouxsie and the Banshees, they naturally danced between art school outsiders and chart raiding pop stars, whilst managing to charm, beguile and bemuse for over three decades.

'The Love Cats', 'Lullaby' and 'Friday I'm in Love' remain their biggest commercial hits while 'Wish' (1992) is the only one of their 13 studio albums to top the UK charts. Their success and continuing influence on bands such as The Killers, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy was recognised at the 2009 NME Awards where they received the Godlike Genius award. Although their last album of new music was released in 2008 - '4:13 Dream' - they continue to tour and announced a 40th anniversary concert at Hyde Park in London in 2018.
