    Who knows. I believe the contract negotiation in 2007 called for 4-5 more albums, which with ATS, LT and THP, means the band either has 1 or 2 albums left in the contract. That's assuming of course they didn't renegotiate it again behind the scenes.

    Or come to India finally. Although, India is a big country and there's so many other factors so I'll need a lot of luck for me to ever go to a LP concert :(

    My dream that never comes, is coming to MOROCCO. WHY! only one time they have visit an arabic country (Dubai in 2011 i guess) and don't worry we don't have terrorists in here :sweating:
    Manny big names in music business have visit MOROCCO so many times like RIHANNA BEYONCE KATY PERRY .....

    http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/28/arts/music/28cont.html?_r=0

    According to this insanely old article, the renegotiation called for an option of up to 5 more albums. This was in 2005. So:

    MTM
    ATS
    LT
    THP
    Mall Soundtrack

    Assuming Warner literally does count The Mall OST as a release from LP (an obscure French article from a year ago said they would), that satisfies the original re-negotiated contract as per the article above. This doesn't mean anything however, as the band could've easily renewed their contract for more albums since then, without announcing it publicly. They've technically released more than 5 albums since that article, if you count the live discs and remix CD, so your guess is as good as mine.

    If only I could...j/k. There were a few solid remixes. My favorite was the IBG remix feat. Pusha T.

    This strikes me as something that sounds like big news, but won't affect much in the big scheme of things. Especially being a fan who lives in a large market, the decisions management is going to make towards release and tour options aren't going to change much for me.

    Pretty true. Again, I think that, in hindsight, it could be looked at as a big move for the band ... but, right now, it won't change anything in the day-to-day for the band or their fans.
