In spite of the deaths of band members Clarence Clemons and Danny Federici, Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band is still very much a working unit. The group is plotting a busy 2012, with a new album and world tour in the works, according to a post on Springsteen's website. The tour will visit Europe from the middle of May to the end of July; info on U.S. dates "will be coming up shortly." As for the album, it "is almost done (but still untitled)" and "we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet)." More information should be announced (you guessed it) "soon."
