The release date could be anything really. Maybe a whole year after the end of the recording sessions is needed to promote it properply these days.

I'm thinking 2013 but I'm really feeling a summer tour at of the album in either 2013 or 2014.

I'm gonna be a total pessimist here, and say that they have never been more silent as a band in their entire history. There is no real evidence that they are actually spending any time in the studio, let alone gearing up for a release. If they were ever going to release North Star/ Every Breaking Wave/ Glastonbury/ Mercy etc, they would have done so long ago by now. So the only thing they would want to release at this stage would be completely new material. But they are not even working on any.
I honestly think they have some serious writer's block. Things are not looking good at the moment. I fear the worst......

I have to agree. I mean, when was the last time we heard anything about them being in the studio? August? Either they have awful writing block or they simply don't care.

Again I have it on high authority that 2013 will be when you see a new u2 album and tour. And it will probably arrive when most people are not expecting it. The next u2.com audio exclusive may not be such a let down .forget about that spiderman they are just polishing up things with that and adding songs that were in the archive. Now u2 can change time scales  like the weather but the small wheels are starting to kick into action.

The first sign of anything serious happening with U2 will be Bono loosing weight. Until that happens there's nothing to get excited about.

And the name of the next U2 album has just been released by a high authority, it's called "Like a thief in the night". ;)

2014

I'm really hoping for a release next year but I don't want to get my hopes up. It seems they haven't spent much time in the studio and I'm guessing they'll need at least a year to work through it all. I'd love to be wrong though!

Ahhh, my prediction is 2017 or never. Sad, but I am slowly coming to the realisation that we will have to say goodbye to U2 at some point. Thanks for all the great music, times and memories guys.
