A lush, pictorial look at one of the worlds most successful alternative rock bands, available in time to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

Into the chaos of British punk rock, a handful of school friends led by Robert Smith announced their musical arrival in 1978 with a brash single pulled from the pages of Albert Camus. The Cure soon graduated into a series of increasingly dark and brooding albums, drawing the worlds attention to goth rock. But they resisted categorization, and subsequent albums--suffused with raw, intense emotion and featuring the breakout hits "In Between Days" and "Just Like Heaven"--attracted new legions of fans worldwide. Then, with the grand and somber Disintegration, the Cure achieved global domination, and, through fluctuating lineups and shifting sounds, they have flourished. Veteran music journalist Ian Gittins has interviewed and written about the Cure many times over the decades and brings deep insight to this unofficial retrospective of the group. This essential keepsake tells the story of the Cure--from the angular riffs of "Boys Dont Cry" and "A Forest," through the perfect simplicity of "Lovesong" and "Friday Im in Love," to headlining some of the worlds biggest music festivals--in beautiful, eye-catching color.
