While Robert Smith, the frontman of music group The Cure, has been busy working on a number of archival projects, he reveals that his band will in January next year hit the studio to record its next album. "We will now not be in the studio 'for real' until January 2006. But we are still on course for a summer release, as it's all in the preparation," Smith posted on the band's website (http://www.thecure.com).
As to everybody to know, the as yet titled new set will mark The Cure's first project since losing keyboardist Roger O'Donnell and guitarist Perry Bamonte, who left the band earlier this year. Besides, it will also be the first release since former guitarist Porl Thompson rejoined the group.
