The Cure - A Forest


On this date in 1980, The Cure released their fifth single, "A Forest". It was backed by "Another Journey By Train". The A side appeared on their second album, Seventeen Seconds. The B side was a non-LP track. The single reached the #31 spot on the U.K. singles chart. This could be considered their sixth single if you count their "I'm A Cult Hero/I Dig You" single under the name Cult Hero. The Sussex, England post punk/goth/new wave band shows no signs of slowing down.
