Sharing an optimistic stance about the future, U2 frontman Bono pointed out that the band's finest work might be yet to come.
Chatting with the Irish Mirror, the singer gave an interesting explanation, saying, "Looking as a rock 'n' roll band, there's no-one - no band - who has done their best work who has been around for 30 years. So we're going to see, but that's not true for film makers, that's not true of a novelist, that's not true of a poet. So why should that be true of a rock 'n' roll band?
"And I'm humbled that in our little post-punk combo from the north side of Dublin, to think that maybe our best work might be to come even if the odds are against us," Bono concluded.
In related news, U2 are reportedly a shoo-in for a headlining slot at one of Coachella festival's future editions. According to the Desert Sun, Bono recently admitted attending the event last year and being very much interested in a headliner spot. Coincidentally, Coachella founder Paul Tollett commented last week: "Ain't no crime in asking [Bono] about Coachella."
U2 are set to release their new album sometime during 2014 through Island Records as a follow-up to 2009's "No Line on the Horizon."
