You're forgetting the point. Which is not that "I am so hurt that they
haven't put out another album for ME yet, how rude!". I'm posing the
thought that maybe a more of their fans are getting turned off the
hype that they once had - just 'cause of the lull. You've seen how
pissed off people get on this newsgroup when sloan doesn't tour their
town or near them. Same thing. The point being, maybe there are enough
people losing interest that it will prevent them from gaining more
attention. Sure they'd still put a good album, but if fans forget about
them who will buy it?

They really didn't have a huge tour schedual when it comes right down to
There are plenty of good bands that release an album a year. Matter of
Sloan themselves said their goals were to put out an album a year.
