As expected, the Cure will headline the Curiosa summer festival tour with support from Interpol and the Rapture, two acts clearly influenced by the veteran U.K. rock act's sound. Instrumental rock combo Mogwai will round out the main-stage lineup for the event, which is scheduled to kick off July 24 in West Palm Beach, Fla.

The star-studded lineup of Cursive, Head Automatica, Thursday, Muse, the Cooper Temple Clause and Melissa Auf Der Maur will perform on Curiosa's second stage.

So far, 16 dates are confirmed through Aug. 27 in Los Angeles. The Cure's official Web site says a full list of dates will be announced imminently.

The Robert Smith-led band will be touring in support of its upcoming self-titled album, due June 29 via I Am/Geffen. The Cure unveiled several new songs, including first single "The End of the World" and album opener "Lost," last weekend at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.

The group's only pre-Curiosa U.S. show is scheduled for May 22 at the WHFStival in Washington, D.C. Seven European appearances are on tap afterward, wrapping July 10 at the Oxegen Festival in Naas, Ireland.
