(Metal Hammer) Avenged Sevenfold In Legal Fight With Their Record Label was a top 16 story of 2016 after the group was sued by Warner Brothers Records for an alleged breach of contract. A7X are trying to walk away from their deal with the label using California's so-called 'seven-year rule' which allows parties to leave contracts after that period has passed.

But under an amendment to the law introduced in the 1980s, record companies can claim lost profits on uncompleted albums, which is what Warner Brothers intends to do, according to Billboard.

A7X's lawyer Howard E King says: "Avenged Sevenfold recently exercised the rights given them by this law and ended its recording agreement with Warner Bros Records.

King adds that, since A7X signed the deal with Warner in 2004, the label has undergone "multiple regime changes that led to dramatic turnover at every level of the company, to the point where no one on the current A&R staff has even a nodding relationship with the band."
