This band tee is dedicated to The Cure's 1989 album Disintegration. In this eighth release, they famously shifted back to the gothic rock sound they had become known for at the start of the decade. It ended up being tremendously successful and marked the group's first commercial peak with tracks like "Lullaby", "Lovesong", "Fascination Street".
As this album shot The Cure into mainstream popularity lead singer, Robert Smith, fell under immense pressure to follow up with even more remarkable works. He actually grew to despise the group's newfound glory and called the state of their success everything that he did not want them to become- a stadium rock band. Smith also dubbed this era "the end of a golden period" and noted the comparison of the album title, Disintegration, with the state of relationships within the band.
