More than a year after it was first announced, it appears the double-vinyl release of The Cure’s expanded ‘Entreat Plus’ live album finally will see a U.S. release on Record Store Day — although it’s not an exclusive RSD release, meaning it could be available at non-participating or non-indie stores and will be sold online.
The Cure will release a 2CD live recording next month of its full, 32-song set at the U.K.’s Bestival this past September, marking the first official live album from Robert Smith and Co. since 1993’s back-to-back ‘Show’ and ‘Paris’ releases recorded during the ‘Wish’ tour — and the first time ever the band has released a complete concert on disc.
‘Entreat Plus’ — the 12-track, remixed version of The Cure’s 1990 live album that was included on CD and digital versions of the expanded ‘Disintegration’ set earlier this year — will be released as a 2LP vinyl set on Jan. 11 by Elektra Records.
This week’s new releases include The Cure’s ‘Disintegration: Deluxe Edition’ (CD and vinyl in Europe, iTunes in the U.S.), Modern English’s first new album in 14 years, a 2CD reissue of Marc Almond’s ‘Open All Night’ and The Wonder Stuff’s re-recording of ‘Hup.’
The Cure today launched a special standalone website dedicated to the upcoming ‘Disintegration: Deluxe Edition’ that features videos, liner notes and photos — plus streaming audio of 20 additional demos and live tracks that won’t be on the 3CD set when it arrives June 8.
The highly anticipated 3CD expanded reissue of The Cure’s beloved 1989 album ‘Disintegration’ has been delayed yet again, with a new release date — in the U.S., at least — set for June 8, according to a press release from Rhino Records this afternoon.

The Cure will reissue its 1989 masterwork Disintegration in an expanded and remastered 3CD edition next spring, Robert Smith announced today, the first salvo in what appears to be a flood of new archival releases from the legendary band — including the first-ever DVD release of 1987’s long-out-of-print “In Orange” concert film.
