No Tour 'till 2015 True Or No, Deny Or Spill Truth / Hoping This Is Not True [Merged]

Recommended Posts

Ouch!  A quote from Dangermouse:

 

As for the fate of his work on the highly anticipated U2 album, Burton claims to not have a clue despite the Irish band already releasing two songs from their sessions with him, the Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated Ordinary Love and the single Invisible.

"I don't really know - I just know it's not done," he said.

But he's still the producer?

"I don't know. I'm working on Bells right now I have no idea what they¹re doing. I've been working on it for YEARS but I'm sure they're still working on the record."

 

from here: http://www.atu2.com/news/billboard-no-u2-album-or-tour-until-2015.html

 

I would be so pissed if I were him. The not knowing part has got to be completely infuriating. 

 

I know I was one of the ones who said I don't mind waiting but 2015 is extreme I think. I think it is a mistake for them to wait so long. They had such a nice press build up with the release of their two songs, and them being largely well received. I hope they don't over think things and go in and rip it all apart. I was really looking forward to hearing an album from them and Dangermouse as producer.

Everything you know is wrong..... The best lying band in the world . Welcome to the world of irrelevance. Coldplay is the biggest band in the world today, it's official. If they release in 2015 after all those lies, they are really wankers. I had been a fan of U2 for thirty years. That's definately it.

 

true

 

 

I never had a good feeling about Danger Mouse as producer. Don't think he's the right man in the right place.

 

Maybe the problem is U2 and not the producer.

U2 was relevant and showed they could be w/ Invisible but this is ludicrous. It doesn't take six years to do a new album. The band should be ashamed of themselves. The hubris and inefficiency is beyond the pale. I'vel oved them for years and seen them nine times but I'm tired of being jerked around.

i actually sort of feel sorry for the band tonight. They seem to certainly be second guessing them self left and right. Simply put, if it takes you almost 5 years to write and record 10 songs, it is time to hang it up. and regardless of what they release in 2015, i doubt it can survive the expectations placed upon it. I think the band should seriously consider going out and playing live ,even if only a small tour, and see if it can straighten their heads out and re-ignite something that has clearly gone out. as it stands, i dont see an album ever making it to the light of day. Just have some dignity.

This is beyond disappointing. If they really crave relevance they certainly won't get it by waiting 5+ years between albums. At the end of the day the diehards like us are the ones that truly care and pay attention. I'm willing to bet a good portion of the people who downloaded "Invisible" aren't even listening anymore; they've moved on to Lady Gaga or whatever. The teenagers and pop crowd don't care about anything other than the flavor of the month at this point and no artist is going to be able to capture the public's attention for long.

 

The major fan base of hardcore fans like ourselves are sadly the last people the band seems interested in, which is a shame.
