The green/red letters is in clear support to Palestine. Going to buy that t-shirt NOW! :)

Simon Gallup answers a fan on Facebook who was skeptical about the new album being made at all:

"Yes there is [the new album being recorded/mixed] choose to believe us or not, we've never played the same game as all other groups... we don't want to save up and buy private islands by releasing stuff and getting it wrong... been like that since day one... if you want normal go and buy depeche mode, Radiohead, Nick Cave etc... New Order do the same as us"

Wonder how that did happen after all the "it will be released later this year" almost every year since 2019 or so!  :lol:
(Robert said it will be out before the 2022 touring starts, now we have 2024!)

But I myself never had a doubt there had been recordings (and maybe after the songs being played live, there were some re-recordings too?), also it is known that Robert can be quite a perfectionist when it comes to mixing and stuff... All we can do is wait and see.  :cool

So if I understand Simon correctly, the new album is basically ready for publication. :smth023 
In ten to fifteen years, some dream islands no longer exist ... I was informed. ;)

No, that's not how I understood his comment. He basically says these things take time and unless they're completely happy with how it turns out, it won't be released yet. (More mixing, more tweaking?)

Yeah well, who knows, I don't wanna wait that long for this album...

...I have to stop myself so that my emotions don't get the best of me, but it was Simon who said already years ago "We don't need a new album." and no one contradicted him - not even Robert. Man... are we really that st*p*d? No.  :frowning:
