Rumor: '4:14' in November? Nope

Yeah, I know, here we go again. But this Spanish website has a release date of Nov. 30th, 2014 (a Sunday?) for '4:14 Scream'. I wouldn't put too much faith in this just yet. Now that the Riots are over, maybe we can get an update from Robert?
(Thanks @hispacure)

Update (11/06/14): And to no one's surprise, this was false. They've now changed the date to 2015. Yeah, still not believing it. If it said 2018, maybe. :)

    1. I put it in Google translate and it said Release Date Confirmed. Seems wrong, but that's what it says.

    2. Actually it's weird because "pendiente" alone means "pending"... I haven't studied spanish well enough, but maybe pendiente de confirmaciòn has the opposite meaning D: Some spanish speaking Curefan would be very useful right now! ;)

  2. .....and if we're really lucky we'll get a concert that isn't at a festival! I'm getting too old for festivaling....lol

  3. November is just around the corner. It seems logical from comercial point of view to release it then. Give people time to think and buy something for Christmas...Let's hope they release it, or anything new...soon :) Thank you all for the updates, makes me feel as a part of it.

    1. Yes! And with December waiting at the door also, why not release "Christmas Without You" as the first single from the album. About time the The Cure releases a (dark/sad) Christmas-song ;)

  4. Please. There is no way a new Cure album, is coming out in November unless it's November 2015. If history tells us anything it's that The Cure are notoriously slow at releasing new music once it's announced. I would love to be wrong.

    1. 'Cut Here' isn't a great song. I think they should have done another rare bside

  6. Why should we trust in this spanish website in the first place? Are they trustworthy, did they ever give any Cure premium information in the past? I don't think so.

    That said, I am among the ones who believe the projects Robert talked about after the RAH will be released, so now the summer is over, it's logical to put hopes in the autumn.

  7. the Dream 14 project was a little confused..maybe Robert still thinking about that, i think christmas could be a good time to release a dark limited edition album .

  8. Considering how uninspiring the last few 'albums' have been, I vote they should wait until they got something WORTH recording.. to record/release it.

    Lawd knows its l-l-l-l-long overdue ~

    expecting good things frm RSX (@ some point??) since many of his contemporaries have put out some great stuff lately

    ...yeah, rather wait for great than rush into mediocre

    1. Bloodflowers was the last solid Cure record imo - and that was 14 years ago! Sure RS had a few good tunes on 13 but for the most part it was filler.

      I don't think RS has anything left from a creative standpoint, that's why he plays the rare tunes to keep it fresh.

      Delete
    2. I think that one is digging at the bottom of the creative barrel when the best that they can do for a song title is 'All Kinds of Stuff'.

      Delete
    3. Totally what I think. That title is offensive. It's pretty much a red flag that true creativity is gone. Maybe it'll all come back to him though.

    4. I thought 413 was very good

    5. Me too - always reminds me of endless train commutes in the snow

  9. Robert has already said the album is 4:14 has long just know that the group is more like it! Porl has antiquity (for some reason have never will be) today is in trouble because that it must release an album and have nothing good has come out! especially with the members constituting the group now!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Who knows what comes next, RS has lied and misled fans so many times I can't keep anything straight.

    Unfortunately The Cure seemed to be resigned to a festival band now, with a few one offs.

    I will be surprised if this current lineup ever puts out something new. Or if those trilogy shows actually happen. Seems like RS is working through most of 'The Top' songs already.

    1. You probably forget that The Cure had always been a festival band. That seemed to have been part of Robert's success formula, since early 80's. Just take a look at what's up there on youtube. So, relax, these guys are not young anymore, and probably know what they're doing...

      Delete
  11. I recall RS saying a few times long ago that he lies on purpose, but mostly in interviews to give stupid answers. I don't think he lies to fans as such, but...

    There is clearly something in his psyche that seems to compel him, from time to time, to suggest to us we're going to get the world, then we get none of it.

    And yep RS when ya read this, I know you don't promise, you just suggest...

  12. I choose to believe! Embrace the rumours!

  13. November of 2017? Once Robert has finished erasing all of Porl's parts, recording Reeve's awful new lines, making the vocals even louder in the mix and re-recording the entire album to make it four times poppier, then it will be ready.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well, it could be. But what have you rather preferred, Robert disbands The Cure after Porl decides to become Pearl ? If they had a bitter separation, then it might be much costlier financially to pay royalties to Porl ( or to lawyers), then the money they could have from the release the album. There's also a business part of all that, plus as he once said that life goes on and all sorts of things happen...

  15. vou are probably right but nothing was said

  16. Pearl ditching the Smiths to go live on a f*king barge w/ his shoes must have affected everyone - frm every angle and on multiple levels... so who knows.

    Sometimes reality jst SUCKS all the creativity right outta ya'

    1. Yep, and it's using the false date posted at the site mentioned in this post.

  18. I think to remember Robert said maybe a year or two after the unsatisfying last album, that he didn't really care to record an album anymore, does anybody remembers that?

    I really wish he would put the double cd 4.14 out, it's no problem if it's an old project with a different line up. I believe we are (maybe not all but most of us) always looking forward to unreleased things to finally come out, and anyway, when they do bonus discs on deluxe editions, if they want to release Orange on dvd, and so on, it's always 'old' projects, but we like it nonetheless, don't we?

    1. last RAH show: the longer they play, the better? So, i'm for the logical following: the more things they release, the better.

  19. This is so depressing! I half believed Robert when he said in January that there'd be an album in 4 months. I hate being cynical.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The delay or out and out cancelling of 4:14 makes sense if the band is working on new material. They will be excited about the new - and be working towards the release of a new album.

    Continuing to stay in the public eye by playing out is good news to... I see lots of fun coming our way via the Cure! Let's Get Happy! :) :) :)

    1. Yeah, or maybe they don't want to release the old stuff until the new stuff is ready to release at the same time to avoid the media calling the "old stuff" the "new stuff". Doesn't Robert get annoyed by that kind of thing? If we are lucky, we will get it all....

      Delete
  21. He'll do it if he can be bothered. Just how it's going to be I reckon.

  22. For The Cure to truly be great again, they should...

    1. Get Chris Parry back as a manager or someone along that vein. The band needs someone to handle all the details and various projects that have yet to be finished or even started.
    2. Get Dave Allen back on board as a producer, they need someone who is not a yes man, and will be willing to say to Robert, this is not a strong song or to tell them, "you need to finish this album already". If not him, then Flood, Steve Lillywhite, or even Nigel Godrich.
    3. Set a concise fixed deadline for the next album, no bullshitting, just concentrate and work on it like they did in the earlier days.
    4. Actually set a tour. Even get Perry or Boris involved if possible, but make it a memorable tour.
    5. Finally put out the remasters, videos, concerts like it has been teased about for over 12 years now. Depeche Mode did it in all in less than a year, and they turned out excellent. Again, a manager would be a great help in this capacity.
    6. Finally call it quits. Sometimes the best way to make sure you're remembered fondly and with admiration is to know when to leave the party. The Cure has had a mostly great, long run; but REM knew when to bow out gracefully and their legacy is pretty much assured.

    I say all this as someone who loves the band very very much, and sometimes when you love something very very much, you have to be critical of it because you want the best. Just my humble opinion.

  23. I can't wait for all the naysayers to be proven wrong. This forum is chalked full of negativity far too often....I come here because I'm a fan who appreciates other fans, but the amount of complaining is draining.
