Label issues HAVE delayed the album

The band have already begun recording their fourth album and plan to release it in August. A June release was put on hold due to financial insecurities at their label EMI. Majors aren't doing that well these days.

Further commentary:

It would make sense that the tours/festivals have been planned to coincide with the album release rather than precede it. But, due to the labels money problems the earliest new material will surface in August. Given that The Verve have covered quite a large area already with their touring so far this year, the live shows will be enough to keep The Verve in people's minds until the album is released.
