SOE - Dec 1st update
« on: September 18, 2017, 12:22:11 PM »
Just an update on what I hope other people will think is the obvious.
(Although this is coming from Chris Evans so take a deep breath)

Today Chris Evans played Best Thing on his show and:
1. Told the listeners that the single is from the forthcoming album (which we already know)
2. Said album was coming out on Dec 1st (Bono also said this on the Dutch radio interview)
3. Hinted that the band will be around and about in a couple of months (but wouldn't elaborate further).  I took the hint as the band doing lots of pre-release publicity pretty much straight off the JT tour which finishes on Oct 25.  This ties in with the timing of 'more details' about the album coming late October.

I know all this might sound obvious to some folk - but expect promo appearances via the BBC at least.  I'd also expect some US promo (iHeart, KROQ - more TV), Irish promo and select other European promo. 

Bring it on.

Iheart is this month which makes it unlikely. They could do the Kroq Christmas show.

Well they have been doing some pre-promo around the single (Jimmy Fallon, radio interviews) and now Kroq before the month is out (whilst touring) so I still think there's more to come in November as Chris Evans said there are some things that are known rumours and others less so.  I think the finer details about the release and also publicity will come out in due course.

Sounds like SOE will be much more raw than SOI given what Edge says about the recording process.

I have a feeling this album will be out in shops and we won't be told.
