Is U2 Still Together? The Band Hasn’t Released an Album in a While

There is something to be said about a rock band that not only has been together for over 40 years but has also managed to keep a huge fan base and remain one of the most popular musical acts in the world. Irish rock band U2 has done just that. 

U2 released their debut album, “Boy,” in 1980 and since then has released 14 studio albums. They are inarguably one of the world’s most successful rock bands in the world. Their last album, “Songs of Experience,” was released in 2017 and is considered one of that year’s best albums. So, what happened to the band? Are they still together, and if they are, why haven’t they released any more music?

U2 formed when they were teens in Dublin.

In 1976, U2 consisted of Bono on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, The Edge on lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals, Adam Clayton on bass guitar, and Larry Mullen, Jr. on drums and percussion.

The Edge told ‘Rolling Stone’ that there is no new U2 album release in the works.

The Edge played pretty coyly when asked about any sign of a new album for the band as well as plans to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of their most beloved albums, “Achtung Baby,” which includes hit songs like “One” and “Mysterious Ways.”

“There have been various ideas, but I don’t think it’ll necessarily be right on the anniversary. It’s one of those very important records in our career. We do want to celebrate it, but we’ll see. I’m not sure yet,” The Edge explained. 

As far as plans for a new U2 album release soon, he shot down those hopes pretty quickly. “I’m always working on new songs. I’ve not stopped since we came off the road, so yes. The question, I suppose, is whether we have a plan to finish or release it. Not so far. But there’s a lot of exciting music being created.”
