U2 have been sitting on a new release for a few years.

The band claims that just when they thought the project was done, they found things they didn't like:

The production was weak, the lyrics needed adjustment, or they just found the songs didn't have the same sizzle as when they first played them.

The CD was going to be not one, but two disc's at first, but the band thought that might be overkill.

The as yet untitled album should be out in early 2014.

If U2 decide to undertake one of their famous world tours, you can bank on a stop in Buffalo.

Look for the tour to be called the "Not because we can, but because we want to" tour.

Or not.
