The Cure: Bestival Live 2011 saw a release on December 6th via Sunday Best Recordings, and today the band is sharing a live video for “A Forest,” which Pitchfork premiered earlier today. The video was filmed during their epic Bestival performance, and is one of the thirty-two tracks that comprise the career-spanning live album.
All proceeds from album sales benefit the Isle of Wight Youth Trust, which is a charitable, independent and professional organization offering counseling, advice, information and support services to young people aged 25 and under on the Isle of Wight (the home of Bestival). The Youth Trust has been working on the Isle of Wight for 27 years and has made a positive input to the wellbeing of people locally.
Of the live album, Robert Smith of The Cure says “We had such a great time in the Isle of Wight at Bestival that we wanted to release this show as a way of thanking fans and islanders alike. Bestival is the best!”
