The band has toured in the UK, the USA, continental Europe, and South America, playing festivals, including opening for Echo and The Bunnymen and The Pretendersat Guilfest. The band state that they strive to re-create the experience of seeing a mid to late 1980s concert by The Cure, including not only the sound, but also the wardrobe, attitude, stage, light show and various video and computer images.
The current and past musicians are pulled together from various Gothic Rock bands such as Nosferatu, Killing Mirandaand The Essenceand Andy Anderson (an original drummer from The Cure) joined The Cureheads from August 2012. Andy Anderson was fired from The Cureheads after he failed to appear at the airport on the morning of their South American tour in November 2012.
