Despite selling 100,000 albums on their self-titled debut and having their 2005’s “A Beautiful Lie” go platinum, Virgin Records is suing the band for $30 million for failing to deliver a new album on time. That’s a pretty clever number. Do you think that was deliberate? Some big-wig probably thought that was really cute. 30 Seconds? Why don’t we sue for 30 million! Particulars of the band’s punctuality have not been disclosed. The lawsuit states the band “repudiated” a 1999 contract in July. What does that even mean? After touring in 2007, the band has been working on a new album, but apparently it’s not coming along fast enough. 30 Seconds to Mars may just be another victim of the money saving merger with Capitol Records implemented by EMI to reconstruct business to save millions a year. Good for them!
