U2 Prepare Reissues

Overseen by guitarist Dave Evans aka The Edge the reissue of the first three U2 albums, Boy (1980), October (1981), and War (1983), expanded, remastered and newly available on 180-gram vinyl and 2 CD sets, now has a release date: July 22nd.

The band is currently in the studio working on a new album for a tentative 2009 release and a tour to follow. (Hurry up, boys: Live Nation is counting on that touring cash.)
