If a Cure covers comp is going too far for you purists, then how about just an EP featuring remixes of all those LP13 pre-release singles? And what if those remixes were executed by, say, 30 Seconds To Mars, Fall Out Boy, and My Chem? And what if I told you I was going to give you info on the project anyway? Here, have fun:
01 “The Only One” (30 Seconds To Mars Remix)
02 “Freakshow” (Jade E. Puget of AFI Remix)
03 “Sleep When I’m Dead” (Gerard Way & Julien-K Remix)
04 “The Perfect Boy” (Pete Wentz & Patrick Stump Remix)
05 “Exploding Head Syndrome” (All 4 Singles Remixed by 65 Days Of Static
On the plus side, royalties will benefit The International Red Cross. They’re calling it the Hypnagogic States EP, and it’s out 9/16. If you prefer your Cure with less eyeliner (wait that doesn’t even work), you can stream a looped snippet of the final installment of the single of the month club, “The Perfect Boy (Mix 13)” at thecure.com. Sounds like it might be the best one yet (based on 20 seconds, granted). Buy it at iTunes.
The Cure’s 13th album is out 9/13.
