The Cure Return With their 14th Studio Album

The Cure will return this year with their 14th studio album. The goth-pop greats have announced that the long-awaited follow-up to 2008's 4:13 Dream will be out sometime "in the next few months." According to the statement, the upcoming LP was recorded at the same time as 4:13 Dream and is tentatively titled 4:14 Scream. No other details on the full-length are available.

Robert Smith and co. are also planning to put out several live concert DVDs in the coming months, but specifics on that project aren't clear yet either.

What is clear, though, is that the Cure are plotting another "Trilogy" world tour for late 2014. The next installment in the band's signature series — in which they perform three of their albums in full — will focus on their mid-'80s output: 1984's The Top, 1985's The Head on the Door, and 1987's Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me.

The Cure will headline the upcoming Bottlerock Festival in Napa, CA May 31-June 2.
