1) A Sep-Dec framework is not consistent with up to March.

I'm factoring in U2time. Last time we were told to expect an album in Autumn, we got it in March. This time, they appear (Loaded word!) to have more songs done, so... we'll see.

Quote
2) Here's some evidence:
- April 24, 2012: Danger Mouse *finishes* producing the new album.
- But in June 2012 Bono is saying, "Looking for the perfect pop song", "gotta do something very special to have a reason to exist right now", "there won't be a U2 album unless there's something really special".
That certainly sounds like perfectionism to me, two months after the album was allegedly finished no less.

We don't know nearly enough about the real details of this, and we'd need to be able to compare the early versions of the songs to the final versions to know for sure.

Fair enough to question it, no problem. But you said there was no evidence at all, and it was not hard to find some. There's plenty more if you want to go searching.

As I have said all along I think new album will be out in June 2014 ;-)
You are probably more correct than many of us.

I did some checking, back in March 2012 you predicted an October 2013 release date.  :P
I tend to think you are on the correct side, but even you have adjusted your predictions. I guess the band keep doing the same thing.

You all missed the update. ;) Hot Press said Adam is "confident of an Autumn release for their new record."

U2 fan post NLOTH

Act 1: "New album released! Can't wait to buy it!"
Act 2: After listening "Hmmmm.... not bad... could've been better." Waits for concert.
Act 3: "GREAT CONCERT!... but they're getting old..."
Act 4: "Can't wait for new album."
Act 5: Wait.... wait...
Act 6: News update! Bono in Africa...
Act 7: wait... wait...
Act 8: News update! Best of 360 U22... fan happy for a while.
Act 9: wait...wait...
Act 10: News update! Spider man musical... WTF!
Act 11: wait... wait...
Act 12: News update! Bono in Africa again  >:(
Act 13: News update! After 4 years U2 starts recording...  :)
Act 14: wait... wait...
Act 15: News update! Bono attends conference :-[
Act 16: wait... wait...
Act 17: TO HELL WITH IT! They should've retired ages ago... listen to old albums instead.
Act 18: Still no U2 album.

Moral of the story: Don't ever wait for a new album... ever!

Hot Press were not quoting, the Irish Independent quoted Adam verbatim. Therefore the Irish Independent is a primary source and Hot Press is a secondary source. I trust the primary source. Adam said they they *should* be finished by the end of the year, which is not even a definite. Gotta call the facts for what they are.

All of us who are waiting for an album (including me) are in denial that U2's days are either over or seriously numbered.

I don't think we're done discussing every possible detail of a release date.

What impact will Adams new haircut have on the release date of the new album? Please discuss ad nasuseam.

Seriously, there are plenty of threads on this forum. If you don't want to discuss release dates you don't have to. But those of us who wish to are free to do so. Why does it bother you some of you so much?

Well yeah... they're definitely far from over. I'm just expressing the general frustrations of a U2 fan at the constant delay in releasing albums.

Because we already have plenty of new album threads to continue this discussion. We don't need a new thread everytime a member of the band scratches his head.
