The Cure

Sunday Best has announced that it will release The Cure’s headline set from this year’s Bestival as a live album on 5 Dec. Proceeds from the sale of the record will go to the Isle Of Wight Youth Trust.

Said Robert Smith: “We had such a great time in the Isle Of Wight at Bestival that we wanted to release this show as a way of thanking fans and islanders alike. Bestival IS the best!”

Meanwhile, Bestival and Sunday Best boss Rob da Bank added: “Since I was fifteen and backcombing my hair, donning my sisters eyeliner and singing the lyrics to ‘A Forest’ into my hairbrush I’ve had an unhealthy fascination with The Cure. To say it reached its peak at Bestival 2011 is an understatement, as after seven years of pestering I not only landed The Cure to headline Bestival, but now appear to be putting out one of their live records on my own record label. How strange!”

He added: “For any of the 50,000 who were at Bestival and saw all or some of the two and a half hour set, this live album will transport you back. For fans of The Cure who didn’t make it I know this will be a legendary addition to your Cure collection!”
