Voodoo Experience 2013 Adds the Cure as Third Headliner

New Orleans' annual Voodoo Experience festival has revealed its third headliner, and it's a biggie. It's none other than -- drumroll, please -- the Cure. Other bill-topping acts include Pearl Jam and Nine Inch Nails, giving the event a very '90s alt sheen. Nothing wrong with that, either.

10 Best Cure Lyrics

The Cure have a reputation as a pretty moody band. But many of their best songs aren't all that gloomy. Peer beneath the minor-chord settings and Robert Smith's often-pained vocals, and you'll find a group that just wa

26 Years Ago: The Cure’s ‘Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me’ Album Released

The Cure were coming off a sort of breakthrough with their 1985 album ‘The Head on the Door’ when Robert Smith got way ambitious and hit on the idea of making the band’s next record, their seventh, a double. Part of it had to do with the conflicting directions taking over his head. Ever since the Cure’s turn toward poppier melodies around 1984, Smith needed to reconcile them with some of his most outside compositions – most of them long dirges that often seemed to go nowhere.

34 Years Ago: The Cure’s ‘Three Imaginary Boys’ Album Released

Like many British albums through the ages, going all the way back to the Beatles, the Cure’s debut album looked a lot different when it finally arrived in the U.S. a year after its original U.K. release. But unlike so many of those albums, the Cure’s ‘Three Imaginary Boys’ actually plays a little better as its stateside companion, retitled ‘Boys Don’t Cry.’ They’re mostly the same record, but with a few adjustments that give the edge to the LP that arrived in the U.S. in February 1980.

17 Years Ago: The Cure’s ‘Wild Mood Swings’ Album Released

Robert Smith once called ‘Wild Mood Swings’ one of his favorite Cure albums. He may be the only one to ever say that about the band’s 10th album and follow-up to 1992’s ‘Wish,’ which debuted at No. 2 and made them one of the biggest modern-rock bands in the world. ‘Wild Mood Swings’ came out in 1996, four years after their highest-charting record – the longest break they had taken between albums at that point. The extended hiatus, and lackluster songs, make for one of the most poorly received records of the group’s long career.
