Five Finger Death Punch Vs Record Label
Prospect Park say 5FDP signed a four-album contract in December 2012. Recording for the fourth album was to start this June. According to Courthouse News Service, when Prospect Park asked the band for two masters for a greatest hits record, the band refused and insisted on using a different producer "out of concern for lead vocalist Ivan Moody."
In papers recently filed at the California Superior Court, Prospect Park's attorney Michael Taitelman says: "This lawsuit is about the creative process outlined in the agreement and the rights of both parties to have involvement to ensure the best product. The band and its reps want to bypass that process, for no reason other than short-term gain." Read more including the response from the 5FDP camp here.
