* Tapeworm. The super-band was headed by Trent Reznor as a side-project to NineInchNails. Lineup was made of musicians from A Perfect Circle and others bands in the same "music genre"... Nothing resulted. Except a song that A Perfect Circle played live once and used in their last album (The song being "Passive"). More info [[http://www.ninwiki.com/Tapeworm here]].

* The career of Andrew Eldritch of TheSistersOfMercy fame: "We are working on an album, inter alia, but the matter of single releases is currently on hold..." and has been for thirteen years.

* '''Music/VioletUK''' has been in development since the early 2000s and possibly earlier. A few songs and appearances have emerged from it, enough to convince fans that ''something'' may happen someday, and an album has been being hinted at since 2007 with a promo implying a new debut in 2013. No one with any knowledge of the project or of [[Music/YoshikiHayashi Yoshiki]] expects this to happen, really.
* LimpBizkit's Unquestionable Truth Part 2 was delayed then scrapped and Gold Cobra was recorded instead, now Part 2 has been resurrected with plans to release it as an EP.

* Music/ChristinaAguilera usually takes four years between albums, averted with Lotus which was a 2 year job.

* The line-up of VanHalen which featured Gary Cherone of Music/{{Extreme}} imploded after the critical and commercial failure of their sole studio album, ''Van Halen 3''. Eddie Van Halen would go through drug and alcohol addictions, survive tongue cancer (he apparently still smokes cigarettes) and a divorce to longtime wife [[Series/OneDayAtATime Valerie]] [[Series/HotInCleveland Bertinelli]]. A reunion tour in 2004 with Sammy Hagar followed, on the heels of a two-disc anthology with two new "Van Hagar" recordings (similar to the failed reunion in 1996 with David Lee Roth for GreatestHitsAlbum ''Best Of Vol. 1'', but the Roth reunion never happened), but Eddie's re-emerging alcoholism led to poor performances and Sammy's second departure, this time taking founding bassist Michael Anthony with him to form Music/{{Chickenfoot}}. Eddie would sober up, rehire David Lee Roth, and begin a world tour with Eddie's son Wolfgang replacing Anthony. ''A Different Kind Of Truth'', Van Halen's first new album in fifteen years, and its first with Roth since ''1984'', would be released to commercial and critical success in 2012.



* BloodhoundGang notoriously took six years to follow up their major hit album "Hooray For Boobies" with the relative flop "Hefty Fine." The follow up to that (alternatively titled "Gettin' Laid On A School Bus" or "Fishin' For Hookers") has been 'forthcoming' for eight years now.

* Rebecca Lynn Howard had not one, not two, but ''three'' unreleased albums. The first was ''Laughter & Tears'', which had two singles in "What a Shame" and "I Need a Vacation", and was never released due to underperformance of both singles. She then moved to Arista and released two cuts that also went nowhere (they would've been on an album called ''Alive and Well''), then a song called "Soon" for a never-finished album on Show Dog-Universal Music. She ''finally'' put out ''No Rules'' on Saguaro Road in 2008.

* InsaneClownPosse's side-project called Soopa Villainz, in which ICP and other Psychopathic artists portrayed comic book-type villains, has fallen into a seemingly infinite state of limbo. Their first album, "Furious," was released in 2005 to luke-warm response. (At the same time, Twiztid were meant to portray an equivalent group called Soopa Heroez, whose corresponding album never did see release.) Then, in 2006, the whole Soopa Villainz project suffered a rather large blow when former-Villainz member Esham released an album of SV's unreleased material as a free, download-only release without ICP's permission - and managed to get ICP in a heap of trouble over the scathing, appallingly homophobic track 'Slow Your Roll', which was more than likely presented out of its intended context.

* [=LeAnn=] Rimes' cover album ''Lady & Gentlemen''. First announced in 2009; first single (a cover of John Anderson's "Swingin'") stalled at the bottom of the charts. The announced release date came and went. [=LeAnn=] tweeted that the album would see release later in 2010 with a bonus re-recording of her debut single "Blue". A non-cover single ("Crazy Women") dropped in 2011 but fell out of the 40 in the blink of an eye. Finally in mid-2011, ''another'' new single ("Give", also not a cover) cracked the charts and the album was finally released in 2011. Incidentally, Rimes and Messina are on the same label (Curb Records, a longtime house of ExecutiveMeddling). Likely, the label thought Rimes' relationship and later marriage to the already-married Eddie Cibrian which made them ''US Weekly'' regulars would poison any attempt to release the record, as many of her existing fans and collaborators bailed from her out of disgust with her behavior.

* Music/TheBandPerry's third studio album, ''Heart + Beat'', was announced with a late 2015 release. But after its lead single "Live Forever" underperformed, the album was delayed... and then the band ended up exiting their label in early 2016.

Added DiffLines:

* Downfall were a short-lived SkaPunk group formed by former Operation Ivy members Tim Armstrong, Matt Freeman, and Dave Mello in 1989. Their first album, ''Get Ready For Action'', was supposed to be released by Lookout! Records in 1994, though by then Armstrong and Freeman had already broken up the band and formed {{Music/Rancid}}. A few years later, [[Music/BadReligion Brett Gurewitz]] remixed the album for a belated release, which also ended up in DevelopmentHell, seemingly because Rancid became much more popular and thus harder for the small label to get in contact with. ''Get Ready For Action'' did leak in full, albeit not from the reportedly more polished Gurewitz mix, and with degraded sound quality. Outside of the unreleased album, their official discography consists of a few appearances on various artists compilations.

* Music/CledusTJudd's ''Boogity, Boogity: A Tribute to the Comedic Genius of Music/RayStevens'' was originally supposed to be released in 2005 by Koch Records (now E1 Music), but they closed their Nashville branch. The album finally got put out in 2007 on Curb.

* Chuck Schuldiner of Music/{{Death}} fame planned a second Control Denied album, ''When Man and Machine Collide'', but his AuthorExistenceFailure prevented it. He did, nonetheless, record quite a lot of music for the album, but it was unfinished at the time of his death. Surviving band members have expressed a wish to complete the album, but various factors including a legal dispute with the band's record label and the theft of the band's equipment have prevented it from occurring as of this writing (January 2016).
* Music/{{Ulver}} at one point planned an orchestral version of their album ''Nattens madrigal'', but it's been revealed that the project is "in a state of total dormancy".
