Following announcement that they are going to do a full circle North American tour next year, The Cure is also expected to release their new album.

Consequence of Sound reported that the English rock band will perform in "Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Chicago's UIC Pavilion, and Madison Square Garden in NYC," between the dates of May to June.

More details about their tour is reportedly going to be announced in January, that reportedly include their new album.

Band frontman Robert Smith confirmed to NME that they are indeed working on new songs which will be included in their upcoming album.

"There's new stuff that we're doing with this line-up and stuff we finished with the old line up," Smith revealed.

And in a separate interview with Uncut, the 56-year-old English musician even joked about the title of their new album saying that it will be named, "4:14 Scream," in accordance to their last record, "4:13 Dream."

And while he admitted that it is "a dreadful title," he explained that Andy, their go to guy for their cover arts "has done a really great album cover for it, a kind of pastiche of me doing a scream, so maybe we'll keep it. It's one of those reverse psychology things, where it's so bad it's good."

Furthermore, Smith praised his band members for being able to withstand the decade long court battle with their former label company.

With the band members' strong relationship, The Cure was able to get back on its feet.

"A lot of stuff happened, unfortunately, with the last line-up of the band," Robert Smith explained. "People forget sometimes that even when you get older, when you play music with people, there's a very intense relationship there and when that breaks down then it's very difficult to just pretend it doesn't matter."
