bands that have taken ages to release an album that ends up flopping and basically killing their careers.
This particularly seems to have been prevalent within mid-tier indie recently. But i think the cut-off seems too be about 2-2 and a half years between. i can think of quite a few.
we are scientists
glasvegas (remains to be seen, but the album/single did shite comparitively)
does it offend you yeah
interpol (sort of with the last one, but not completely)
