U2 part with record label

Metro Ireland reports about the Island Records breakupGeesh! The U2log.com staff go on holiday to follow some of our other favorite bands, only to come back and find that U2 have left Island Records, they will be releasing another Best Of collection, and Bono attended the New York Film Festival. What else happened?! Did Edge grow a beard? We weren’t gone that long, were we?

Metro Ireland reported the gory details about the breakup with Island Records in its free Dublin newspaper (click image for bigger version). The image they used of the New York Film Festival visit was a lot more flattering than the Dirty Old Man shot The Sun used in its report.
