Christmas time is usually the best time to release an album, so wouldn't be surprised if with The Cure is the same:

2019.06.08 Dublin
2019.07.04 Novi Sad
2019.07.17 Athens

Q4. the fourth quarter of the year then. so the Fall or Winter..i say the Fall! :) ive always heard the spring and the fall are the best times to release an album. looks like the new album might be out right around the time of a NA tour if that happens. Roger mentioned in an interview recently about a NA tour in the fall possibly. that makes sense. The record company prob would like them to tour/promote the new album. (that they wont play much off of anyway haha) and thats fine by me! lol

i hope they come to toronto this year and play there OWN show and not some festival like the last two times they were here, that i didnt go to :/ if its later in the year thats good! outdoor festivals will be finished by then for sure. yaa! i hope so!

What is Robert getting himself into...??? Ha ha. I guess I'm empathetically feeling the wild, crazy busyness of a soon to be world wide tour, although I must admit that after just writing that I'm feeling a really foundational vibe, as if it's going to be a really fulfilling, thorough experience for everybody. Robert was joking when he said it's a really dark album, wasn't he? Then again, I'm anticipating something like Wish for some reason. Many of us know that Robert loves Christmas, so will it be released then or in the Fall? They said the Fall, but often things get held up, so it would seem more likely Christmas or even post-Christmas. I'm feeling some good, deep songs.

Erm, I don't think so. He said this several times in interviews, what made you think it was a joke?  :?

They are mixing the album right now (during the Summer)he mentioned in some BBC 6 interview. Agh! I'm really excited, with all the new modern bands he's been listening to, he's been really inspired. I'm thinking it's gonna be pretty modern. (But not shit what's on the radio modern, that's just kack). So I'm looking forward to it! Hopefully the boys might be a bit more popular again. There's only so many times I can listen to Madonna's come back,(ack) it's about time we hear about The Cure's 'come back'!

Roger recently said in an interview that one should never believe anything Robert says. Even a biographer disagrees with points about Robert's life that Robert himself has said are true. If it's anything like Wish (and I know you have your method for predicting what kind of album The Cure is going to release next) it would have deep, dark songs. I don't know if they still feel influenced to add lighter, pop songs for the general public or not, but that's what they did for Wish (Friday I'm in Love, which I read was meant to be a slow song, but sounded good as a pop song when speeded up, and High). Back to Robert's honesty, it's possible that he feels a disconnect when being interviewed, as if the truth is not that important to tell, being that he's not emotionally connected to the person interviewing him and the silence of the audience to whom he's speaking, also I wonder if he might say what he thinks fans want to hear. I believe Robert is authentic, especially when in front of audiences. He has a way of connecting that's deeply moving, as if he's able to align his heartbeat with the rest of ours. It's really special standing in front of him. One can feel loved for the rest of their life from just one experience of being that close to Robert Smith, but I don't see anything in his astro chart that gives him a particular drive to be honest. Plus, he's an artist. What he says one moment might feel wrong in the next moment. Only time will tell how the next album will be. I imagine great changes can be made in the mixing and who knows if they add a few songs they weren't intending to when recording? Would we all know if they went back to the studio to record two new songs? I'm going to stop now...:-)
