Supernova Settle on Name

(antiMusic) So Cal rockers Supernova have settled their dispute with the supergroup from the CBS reality contest "Rock Star: Supernova," according to AP. Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Jason Newsted (Metallica), Gilby Clark (Guns N' Roses) and contest winner Lukas Rossi will now be known as Rock Star Supernova while the original band will retain just plain Supernova.

Supernova has released three albums since 1991 and in June when they discovered the TV supergroup planned to use their name they sued CBS, those involved in the show and Mark Burnett Productions for unfair competition and trademark infringement. Did someone forget to do a trademark search? No matter now, since you'll be able to tell the groups apart.

Rock Star Supernova is currently in the studio with producer Butch Walker recording their debut which Epic plans to release on November 21st. The band will head out on tour with support from The Panic Channel and the show's house band and contestants about a month later.
