'The first time I've ever had the whole band sitting in front of me.'

Latest broadcast interview is with Zane Lowe for BBC Radio 1 in the UK. All four band members were in the studio to talk about how the album began to emerge during the last tour and how it was finished... days before last month's release.

Listen again here.

And if you're in the UK, did you catch the band performing tonight on Later With Jools Holland,  along with Sam Smith, Interpol and Zola Jesus?

A debut live performance for 'Volcano' was a bit special, as was 'Every Breaking Wave' with the whole band and a string section.

Here's Volcano - not available to view in all countries.

and Every Breaking Wave.

Sound Quality????
Was it me or was the sound on the US broadcast of Jools Holland bad? No low end bass drum and bass was non-existant. I was dissapointed. Hopefully it was just the broadcast I DVR'd. Will try to catch it again and see if it is better.

Absolutely magnificent New record. To think all these years later and the Fab four are still making great sounds. Troubles is 1 of my fav songs ever will surely rank as 1 of the best U2 have ever done

Volcano just rocked. Masters of the low groove and then that break down - "I am rock and roll" - had me shaking in my seat. Larry's drumming was AWESOME

Love Volcano !
I confess--even if I had a soft spot for Glastonbury, and think it's a pity it's not in the album, I really dig Volcano !! Great live performance !! Thanks for sharing.
