I'm talking about bands that were hit, stayed out of the light for a bit, and then released another popular song, Here are some examples: (old wave hits in parentheses 1, new wave hits in parentheses 2)

Aerosmith (Dream On, Walk This Way, Sweet Emotion, Back In The Saddle) (Dude Looks Like A Lady, Rag Doll, Love In An Elevator, Jamie's Got A Gun, What It Takes, Take Me To The Other Side, Living On The Egde, Cryin', Crazy)

Green Day (Basket Case, When I Come Around, Good Riddance (Time Of My Life)) (American Idiot, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Holiday, Know Your Enemy, 21 Guns)

The Beach Boys (Surfin' Safari, Surfin' USA, Little Saint Nick, I Get Around, Barbara Ann, California Girls, Wouldn't It Be Nice, Good Vibrations) (Kokomo (terrible song by the way, should've just remixed California Girls Buller style))

Black Sabbath (Heaven And Hell) (War Pigs, Paranoid, Iron Man, Children Of The Grave)

AC/DC (TNT, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Highway To Hell, Back In Black, You Shook Me All Night Long, For Those About To Rock We Salute You) (Thunderstruck, Money Talks)

Pink Floyd (successful in the 60s with singles 'Arnold Layne', 'See Emily Play', then mostly disappeared from the public eye-- though they had a cult following-- until DSOTM and the accompanying single 'Money') 

Sorry, just had to throw in PF wherever possible! 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Well, if you're gonna throw in PF, then I suppose I may as well throw in Fleetwood Mac.  Their first album did not yield any singles, but it did reach No. 4 on the UK charts and eventually sold a million copies in the UK (though in the US, it only barely made it to No. 198).  They had two more successful albums in the UK, plus an LP non-album singles, and several successful singles like Black Magic Woman , Albatross (the inspiration for Sun King ), Man Of The World, Oh Well Pts. 1 & 2, and The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Pronged Crown).  So yeah, they were pretty popular in the UK for a while.  But then, in 1970, founding member, songwriter, and guitar virtuoso Peter Green left the band and they pretty much dropped off the face of the earth popularity-wise.  After a couple years of diminishing popularity and critical acclaim in the UK, they moved their operations to America, where they had begun to gain a cult following.  In 1975, Mick Fleetwood recruited Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, and the rest is history.  Rumours, Tusk, biggest band in the world, yadda-yadda-yadda.

Bob Dylan has won and lost more audiences than could be counted on a centipede's legs.

Going electric. Going Born Again. Most of the '80s.

Dylan and Bowie, they both know/knew how to alienate their audience.

And then there's Lou Reed, who you could say had the Velvet Underground run, then ummm, then the Bowie produced Transformer period, and then more ummm, and quite a bit of oh!, before he's smashing the ball out of the park at the end of the 80s and on into the 90s with the career highs of New YorkMagic and Loss and Songs for 'Drella (back with JC to remember AW).

And how about Laughing Lenny Cohen...

Lots of artists have barren periods that have their fans head in hands, but the best are always capable of surprising and creating something relevant when you've just about given up hope...

Wanting to throw a Beatle in so would George count? Huge in the early 70s before less success followed until 'Got My Mind Set on You' exploded in 1987. The few singles that charted didn't do much and I'm not sure the albums did either - 'Gone Troppo' vanished before it appeared.

Well, most of his mid-late 70's albums at least went gold.  But they weren't enormously popular or anything.  There was a few singles like Blow Away and All Those Years Ago that were popular, but not a lot else.  I'd say he would count for this.

Deep Purple released albums on a regular basis from 1968 to 1975. After that, they didn't release another until Perfect Strangers in 1984.

The Monkees (more or less, probably less but maybe more) 1960's was huge for them. Then the eighties saw their MTV marathon. Their new (2016) album got to #14 on the Billboard.

They were never that popular, but Golden Earring spring to mind, as their two big hits - Radar Love (1973) and Twilight Zone (1982) - were nearly ten years apart.

Horrendous that 'Kokomo' track is. 

Take That split in 1995/6 as one of the biggest boybands and returned 10 years later to huge commercial and critical success, still going strong they are; well they've lost one member (Jason) and another (Robbie) jumps back and forth, in and out, whenever his ego needs inflated. 

Blondie split in 1982 only to reform in 1997 and give us the appalling 'Maria' single which hit #1 in 1999. Still going apparently Blondie is.

If Bob Dylan and John Lennon are bands then I guess Cher would also count as a band with a hit nearly every decade since 1960s.

Let's not forget the Bee Gees with their Beatlesque pop and slightly psychedelic songs in the 60s, then the disco stuff in the 70s.

Arguably, there may not have been much of a time gap between their change in style.  Maybe that DQs them from what you are going for.

If so, let us consider the Four Seasons.  After all their hits in the 60s, they went dormant for a while circa 1968.  But they came back in the 70s with hits like Who Loves You and December 1963 (Oh, What A Night).

I was thinking more of bands or artists that disappeared only to return after a period of time away from success. 

Cliff Richard has had a hit single every decade he's been going (excluding the one we are in now).
