    Robert Smith Reveals Cure LP Details, Bitches at iTunes
    "THIS IS SO TOTALLY WRONG. I REALLY DO FUCKING DESPAIR."

    The Cure have unveiled even more details about their triskaidekaphilic new album, 4:13 Dream. The record now has a tracklist and release dates on Suretone/Geffen. Instead of October 13, as the band previously (yet tentatively) claimed, those release dates are October 28 in the U.S. and October 27 in the UK.

    Cure frontman Robert Smith also hinted at 4:13 Dream's follow-up in a news update on the band's website: "Taking bets now against 'dark album' companion piece out before my birthday 2009... Ha! Or not so ha!" (His birthday is April 21, sez Wikipedia.)

    In another website update, Smith had some choice words for the UK iTunes store regarding an inflated price for the emo-star-studded Hypnagogic States EP. "WHY IS IT SO INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT TO GET ANYTHING DONE RIGHT?" he asks his record company. It's a pretty entertaining read.

    Smith's full all-caps rant is after the jump, along with 4:13 Dream's tracklist.

    ITUNES UK HYPNAGOGIC NONSENSE

    PLEASE DONT BUY HYPNAGOGIC STATES EP FROM ITUNES FOR 7.99

    IT IS ABSURD!

    TMU HAS MANAGED TO FUCK THIS UP TO ANOTHER LEVEL!

    MY EMAIL TO THEM TODAY IS BELOW
    ITS EASIER THAN WRITING IT OUT AGAIN NICELY...
    (THOSE OFFENDED BY COLOURFUL LANGUAGE LOOK AWAY NOW)

    >

    DEAR...

    I FUCKING DESPAIR
    AGAIN

    HYPNAGOGIC STATES EP IS NOW UP ON UK ITUNES...

    5 TRACKS FOR 7.99?
    FOR FUCKS SAKE!

    AND THE PACKAGE IS COMPLETEY MISSING THE EXTRA BONUS TRACK (65DOS ALT REMIX OF "THE ONLY ONE")

    SO
    YOU CAN BUY THE FOUR REMIXES BY 30STM/AFI/MCR/FOB INDIVIDUALLY FOR 79P EACH...

    BUT YOU ONLY GET THE 65DOS "EXPLODING HEAD SYNDROME" REMIX OF ALL FOUR SINGLES IF YOU PAY 7.99 FOR "THE ALBUM"...

    IE YOU ARE BEING ASKED TO PAY 4.83 FOR THE 65DOS REMIX... !!!
    WHO THE FUCK IS GOING TO PAY THIS AND NOT FEEL TOTALLY RIPPED OFF?

    IT'S NOT A FUCKING ALBUM!
    IT'S A 5 TRACK EP
    AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO GET AN EXTRA FREE TRACK (THE 65DOS REMIX OF "THE ONLY ONE") IF YOU BUY IT AS A 5 TRACK EP
    AND ITS SUPPOSED TO COST LESS IF YOU BUY IT AS A 5 TRACK EP THAN IF YOU BUY THE 5 TRACKS INDIVIDUALLY...

    THAT IS WHAT WAS AGREED



    THIS IS SO TOTALLY WRONG
    I REALLY DO FUCKING DESPAIR

    WHY IS IT SO INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT TO GET ANYTHING DONE RIGHT?



    PLEASE FIX THIS NOW

    >

    I AM POSTING THIS AS I FEEL



    UPSET!

    ANYWAY
    PLEASE ONLY BUY THIS 5 TRACK EP FROM ITUNES WHEN IT IS AVAILABLE FOR AROUND 4.00 OR LESS AND YOU GET THE FREE 65DOS T.O.O REMIX - IT'S FAB AND THE MONEY (WELL - OUR SHARE OF IT!) IS GOING TO A GOOD CAUSE...

    THIS GOES FOR ANY OTHER ITUNES STORES AROUND THE WORLD

    LIKE JAPAN...
