Tend to release many more studio albums than ones who explode worldwide.

Just a random thought I had.

Do you think the pressure of promoting globally puts alot more pressure on a band and its members so they fizzle out quicker? that would make sense.

I was thinking that today also and artists who stick to the UK usually have longer due to not touring worldwide whereas those who do experience fatigue and burnout and probably more emotional demands. The bigger you are the more countries you need to go to and a worldtour also.

Think breaking the UK and then doing that again for most countries all around the world and how hard that is. Granted some markets are harder to crack than others (USA,Germany,France,Japan) so it wouldn't be as hard as establishing/maintaining success in the UK in every one but the volume of nations alone would be taxing.

Taking Girls Aloud seeing as they are the topic for most in the forums due to spliting they were UK/Ireland exclusive and no success elsewhere meaning of course all their singles went top ten due to only promoting in one country and meaning they could put out more albums as less time was spent going overseas.

boy/girl bands in pop who achieve international fame and success usually burnout after 4/5 years ie Blue,Spice Girls,Take That,Five etc etc mainly due to pressure and tiredness of waking up in a new country every day and promoting all over the world daily with only a handful of days off during this 4/5 year period.

So yes when you are an international act it's just more time consuming with more traveling and interviews with foreign press/performances which leads to quicker burnout than domestic only acts.

Good post, pretty much what I was thinking.

of the bands mentioned i would also add tht they are not organic bands who have grown from being young and desperate to make music and have a certain camaraderie, manufactured bands see it more of a job IMO

I would suggest that to become a real band like U2, Coldplay, Muse etc..you have to tour and build an audience through playing live.

I agree. It's the acts who pay their dues in miles & gigs who seem to end up with the longevity, for the most part.

And rightly so it should be added.

It's probably because those artists have more of the world to promote/tour etc and so take longer to wrap up album era's.

These aren't bands, they're groups
