Tolhurst, co-founder of The Cure, is debuting his memoir Cured, a first-hand account of the band's growth and superstardom.

A memoir of The Cure from one of the legendary British "pop-goth" band's founding members, the childhood best friend of iconic lead singer Robert Smith.

For the first time in the bands nearly forty-year history, here is the story of The Cure - virtual inventors of alternative music - from someone who was there at the very beginning: Lol Tolhurst, the band's co-founder, co-songwriter and lifelong friend of lead singer Robert Smith.

Smith prefers to let the band's songs speak for themselves, making Cured the only insider memoir of a group that helped generations navigate their angst-filled teen years. From Smith and Tolhurst's early childhood to the band's heyday, Curedilluminates and surprises in equal measure. Tolhurst mines the bands peak years (1976-1989) to produce never before told tales of The Cure, shining a light on the mercurial and fascinating Robert Smith. Revealing the highs and lows in a life long relationship, Cured is a touching odyssey of triumph, despair and ultimately understanding and redemption.

Lol Tolhurst and The Cure have sold more than 27 million albums worldwide and received 40 platinum and gold records in every major territory.
