* Necrophagist has slowly been becoming a punchline much like Winter Sun and DukeNukemForever in regards to how long they have been taking to make a new album. Necrophagist started work on the new album back in 2008, but as of March 2014 there still isn't any new info on the new album. Their last album, ''Epitaph'' came out in 2004.

Added DiffLines:

* While both StevieNicks and Lindsey Buckingham have wanted to do a CD version of their pre-FleetwoodMac album ''Buckingham Nicks'' for over 25 years, the project has stalled mainly due to difficulty in finding usable master tapes.

* Despite the success of the BlueOysterCult and their solid record of acclaimed albums, it ''still'' took the best part of twenty years for band Svengali Sandy Pearlman to get his pet project, ''Imaginos'', off the ground. Even though individual tracks had appeared on the band's early LP's and were sound and well received, delays and stalling and indifference from record companies meant it was 1988 before Pearlman's supernatural concept LP saw the light of day. By then, only the TwoOysterCult were left - two of the original lineup - and the record was scratchily completed by a gaggle of hopefuls and disinterested studio session musicians. It was not a hit and to this day, the new tracks from the album are never performed on stage.

* The follow up to Australian plunderphonics collective The Avalanches' debut album ''Since I Left You'' has been in development hell for nearly a decade. Every so often, a member of the band claims its done and they're just clearing the samples (this being important, since they're a plunderphonics group that means almost ''all'' of their music is samples), but then nothing in heard for a few years. The latest estimation is late 2011/early 2012.

* 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.
