Well fans with crashing blow news surfaced today that U2 has pushed their project out to 2015. 

Billboard Magazine has the exclusive report that a source stated, "That magic that the band always seems to capture ... they have yet to capture it."

Rumors suggested that 2014 was to be the year of U2 it surely seemed that way with the Golden Goble award and the Grammy Nomination.

Bono continues to focus his legacy and what will be of U2 that this may have paralyzed the band from creating the magic. We all remember when Bono said he feared the band was "really close to the edge of relevance," noting "there's a giant chasm between the very good and the great, and U2 right now has a danger of surrendering to the very good." He reiterated those sentiments to The Hollywood Reporter in February when he noted, "to be relevant is a lot harder than to be successful."

Count on this the band will have to create something because they are under contract to do so. The magic will either happen naturally or forced and that will be come the legacy of U2.

Once-in-a-lifetime sort of stuff, places like Africa and Central America. “We also went to Jordan and Palestine, Israel and Peru. “It was really great to have time off.”
