Hi all,
        this is my first post on @u2 {long time browser} so please be gentle with me.
I come with glad tidings that according to u2.com the boys have shot a new video in London today, described as featuring marching girls in their boots.This i can only deduce must be the vid for the lead off single Get Your Boots On,that i'm sure on this evidence we will hear late Dec./early Jan. Looking forward to it, In a Little While!

Nice to meet you, Jack.  Glad you decided to quit lurking and join us.  Girls marching in boots?  Sounds weird and yet intriguing.

"Get Your Boots On" sounds more like something Franz Ferdinand would do than U2, so I agree-- I am intrigued. I am very open to whatever new and exciting things the boys have going on this time around.

It's Get On Your Boots, not Get Your Boots On I think.

I'm guessing this will be the lead single off the new album, I hope the video clip will be good, because there have been some ordinary ones from the past 2 albums imo.

This is good news to me but I hope it materializes into something. We were teased with the rumor of another video shoot back in July/Aug., and then Bono tells us the album will be delayed.

It's about time they start actually moving on getting a single/video out to the public.

Vertigo was a fun video, no?

FINALLY something new coming out of the U2 camp.  I can only assume that the single is on its way any day now.

Sounds like guesses of a January release could be a possibility?

Yep and that could mean the February 23rd rumours for the album are true

I was very, very excited to read of the new video shoot. I really hope we'll be hearing this new single by the end of the month. If not, then surely it's got to be January. I have high hopes now that the album will come in February.

This is the first concrete signs of things moving up a gear for the new album launch. Allied to last week's new song for Red, seems we might finally be nearing the end of the time spent drumming fingers on the windowsill and scouring the web for snippets of gossip! I live in London so if I see any (more than usual) troupes of girls in boots marching past I'll be on the spot with a camera immediately :)

In the U2.com article, it ends with:

"More as we get it..."

That's ridiculous!  :D There's plenty of more stuff they could tell us...they're just torturing us!  ;D
