The new album, set to be released some time later this year, was recorded at the same time as 2008’s '4:13 Dream'. Whilst details are vague at this point, it is thought a live concert DVD will also be released in the coming months.

The band will also embark on their next set of ‘Trilogy’ shows at the end of the year, which are set to take place around the world. This will be the third set of ‘Trilogy’ shows for the band. The concept started in 2002 when the band performed albums 'Pornography', 'Disintegration' and 'Bloodflowers' in full. It was followed in 2011 when the group played albums 'Seventeen Seconds', 'Faith' and 'Three Imaginary Boys', which had been released 35 years earlier, in their entirety. This next part of the ‘Trilogy’ shows will reportedly feature three of their popular 1980s albums, 'The Top', 'The Head On The Door' and 'Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me'.
