This is all becoming so boring isn't it?

Well it doesn't mean they're planning to release two, at least not in the same year.

Releasing two albums in the same year in the current state of the music industry is unlikely and the 2nd album always goes down big time in sales. Justin Timberlake did it with 20/20. The 1st sold 968,000 copies its first week. The 2nd album sold 350,000 copies. Same thing with Green Day.

I doubt that we'll really get two albums. We'll maybe get a deluxe edition with some new songs.   After all, remember last time?

I'd like to believe two albums are on the way but at this point I think we'll be lucky to get one. I would love for them to prove me wrong. ;)

i wonder if they will pull a franz ferdinand and release something like Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action and Right Notes/Right Words/Wrong Order. 

So maybe 1 album with either a remixed album/live recorded album.

Agreed.    I think getting even one is questionable.

I doubt there will be two albums or a double album for that. We will get a new album of 12 songs in July followed by a number of non-album singles in the second half of the year and into early 2015

So after all these years spent in the studio, they're going to say, 'na, it's not good enough, we'll scrap it all and wait another couple of years'.   Really?

It's been five years and they still don't have anything ready. At this point I think that's a fair assumption.

So you're saying there's going to be nothing this year then?

I don't claim to know either way. I think it's likely we'll get something this year but we also have been told about a new project since 2009. With all the delays it's not out of the realm of possibility that they will delay it even further.

Anyone know any specifics about their contract in terms of how many more albums they HAVE to do? What are they contractually obligated to release going forward?
