Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Promise New Album and World Tour in 2012
Despite the loss of iconic saxophonist Clarence Clemons earlier this year, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have forged on, and now it looks as if they'll be as busy as ever in 2012, as fans can expect a new album and world tour.

The update comes from the band's official website, which posted the following statement:

A lot of you have been hearing that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be on tour in 2012. That is absolutely correct. The European dates run from the middle of May until end of July and are being announced this week. Info on the US dates and the World tour dates will coming up shortly.



In addition, we want you to know that the music is almost done (but still untitled), we have almost settled on the release date (but not quite yet), and that we are all incredibly excited about everything that we're planning for 2012. That's all the info we have for right now, but we'll get back to you--real soon.


So far, these 2012 dates only include a handful of UK festival dates, which you can see here, but we're sure more dates are just around the corner.
