The Cure Set to Release 40-Year Anniversary Documentary

XXX of The Cure performs on stage on the sixth and final night of a series of concerts and events in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust organised by charity Patron Roger Daltrey, at the Royal Albert Hall on April 1, 2006 in London, England.

The Cure‘s longtime collaborator Tim Pope announced he’s working alongside Robert Smith on a documentary of the band’s history to celebrate their 40th anniversary. The yet-to-be-named documentary will feature unseen clips from Smith’s collection: “Super-8; interviews; bootlegs; rare performances; behind-the-scenes, blah,” the film director said in a Tweet. Pope also hinted at other events scheduled to celebrate The Cure’s anniversary next year; one already-confirmed event is their monumental festival-style gig featuring Interpol, Slowdive, and Goldfrapp.
