The band are expected to release their new album, reportedly titled 'No Line On the Horizon' in the early part of 2009, and will celebrate its release with three massive hometown gigs.

The story claims that the band will kick off an eighteen-month world tour in the States in early 2009, before heading to Europe for outdoor summer shows.
