Idle Cure was a hard/arena rock band based out of Long Beach, California. The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music calls their sound "the best example of cloning a sound for Christian markets", likening it to that of Def Leppard's Pyromania. They targeted a youthful audience, distinguished by overtly religious lyrics, even evangelical lyrics.
CCM magazine reported that all original members of the band had been in mainstream bands prior to the formation of Idle Cure. Their first four albums have been reissued as compilations by KMG Records.
