Hi Kieran,
It actually has a lot to do with the lack of support from the label, which, of course leads to poor album sales. No video, no tour support, no serious push to radio. M3 were even supposed to be on a Doors tribute album (on Elektra...), but it got dropped from the line-up!!

One question though: did the M3 spokesman say anything about other label interest? I heard there were quite a few looking to sign them.

If you think about it, the same thing happened to the guys when they were in Southgang too. The first albums did fairly well with a lot of support from the labels, then their second albums (which, in my opinion, were better in both cases) didn't do nearly as well. Go figure...
