The Cure bestow the blessing by choosing 65daysofstatic

As reported here (as well as everywhere on the web), The Cure will be touring this Fall in the US with a new album to boot. They've handpicked UK instrumental rockers, 65daysofstatic to open up for them for their tour (Static's tour starts July 18th).

You may have heard of them via Kerrang Magazine rave reviews ("utterly peerless") as well as Harp, Stylus and Magnet magazine that are just now catching on to what I already knew. Some lucky souls also may have caught them when they played SXSW for the Fanatic Promotion showcase where they made their American debut to a very enthusiastic crowd. Their new album sold out so fast that their record label was sent hustling to print up more to satisfy the masses.

"Don't Go Down to Sorrow"

You should familiarize yourself with them...they're well on their way to being HUGE!

You can stream the album here.
