yeah virgin pumped a lot of money into marketing them and their album sales were mediocre.

i am pretty sure it went platinum. i don't know how you could call that mediocre. i am shocked that virgin would drop them or let them out of their contract unless they had some kind of opt-out clause...

Mediocre? It went platinum..


yeah seriously. and in this market you have to take in to account maybe a 4x multiplier of your actual sales to account for illegal downloads.

As of a couple of months ago it had scanned a little north of 811k which is not quite plantinum but definitely a lot more than "mediocre"

Yeah, but it's shipped platinum

They went platinum...Albums usually only have to go gold to be considered a success in the industry. But again, I don't know exactly how much money was spent on marketing.

Virgin probably doesn't like the new stuff they are writing/they don't think it will do well.

Edit: Also, don't rule out the fact that they could've left on their own, instead of being dropped.
