  32. From Olivier: RS is being interviewed right now. Said this is the only time they would be playing the whole album live. The second hour will be a very long "greatest hits" encore. "I never ever had writers block!"

    ReplyDelete
  33. urgh! its times like these i wish i had been a trust fund baby! *curses the sky*

    ReplyDelete
  34. More from RS: "The new album was recorded as a double, of which 4:13 Dream will be the first part. The second part will be a "dark" album."

    Yes!!! The Dark Dream is still alive!

    ReplyDelete
  35. YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dark Album For the win!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. g sez: "i hope they don't call it "4:14 Dark Dream"

    ReplyDelete
  37. A dark album! =D

    I was trying to keep away from this place cause I don't wanna hear about the new album before I actually get it... I caved.

    My money's on "4:13 Nightmare"... But I hope I'm wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  38. yeah...it's a little "proggy" for my tastes. haha.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Pietro: Robert said the encore would be rather short due to curfew, they had hoped to play longer.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pietro (9:22pm): Robert said the encore would be rather short due to curfew, they had hoped to play longer.

    awww :(

    Well the main set is the important part! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. craig, did Friend of COF mention anything at all about promo shows for this album at all?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sofia: No. And Robert has already said that they were not planning on playing live again for awhile, so this looks to be it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. sofia- haha...I don't drink coffee so I can't tell ya

    ReplyDelete
  44. :c ah...i was hoping they might've changed their mind. for the sake of COF Dream Come True Tour 2009 :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Damn, now I know 2 people who have the new album.

    ReplyDelete
  46. god, its time like these when we need a teleportation device.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd bet there's going to be a tour after 4:13 Nightmare.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sofia: 09 is still up in the air. But 08 looks very doubtful.

    ReplyDelete
  49. april, pretty cold there right now? i hear montana/idaho got like 20 inches of snow or something crazy like that!

    ReplyDelete
  50. sofia- yeah, there's some storm brewing. Its pretty cold here now

    ReplyDelete
  51. dream - there better be a tour or there are going to be a lot of disappointed people

    ReplyDelete
  52. That's it....the Greenville Fall Festival will have to do without my family. My butt's staying right here.

    *orders a pizza8

    ReplyDelete
  53. Morris: Sorry, just saw your note. Hope you enjoy the game! Especially the sight of Charles Scott running all over The Swamp, and scoring 4 touchdowns. : )

    Should be a great game, either way.

    Geaux Tigers!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I remember some quote from Robert somewhere i think in responce to the 4:13 Dream music videos. Something like what the cure is all about what they do live on their tours. I doubt they'll not tour after 4:13 nightmare (man everytime i type that, i like the title more and more)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am leaving work early just so I can join the chat...how lame is that?

    ReplyDelete
  56. how about "4:13 welcome to the terrordome" no?

    "4:13 sleep apena"

    ReplyDelete
  57. april, its NOT lame! it's RIGHT AND GOOD.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Screw work! Nothing is more important than Cure chat!!!

    ...It will be the most hit YouTube ever!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I was scared for Plainsong w/o keyboards, but I really love how it turned out. Still has all the epic feel to it, still magical.

    JLH is stuck in my head for some reason right now ;p

  147. Pietro: UTS is...Wow!! Only One is as usual, Porl's guitar is unusually low.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I like The Only One as well. It has a melancholy undertone that I really dig.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Hope they turn up Porl's guitar by Real snow white! Sounds like it's gonna be the real elad on most of the songs

    ReplyDelete
