Simon Gallup Leaves The Cure

Simon Gallup

After four decades in the band, Simon Gallup has announced he has left The Cure. He made a statement on Facebook.

“With a slightly heavy heart, I am no longer a member of The Cure! Good luck to them all,” he wrote.

A reason for his departure was not clear, but he responded to one fan’s comment that he “just got fed up of betrayal.”

Gallup joined The Cure in 1979. Although he left the group for a two-year stint in the ‘80s, he was the second longest serving member of the band behind lead singer Robert Smith.

The Cure has yet to comment on Gallup’s decision. As such, a replacement has not been named.
