Five Finger Death Punch Producer Sounds Off On Label Lawsuit

Five Finger Death Punch

(TeamRock Radio) Five Finger Death Punch producer Kevin Churko has taken the band's side in their legal battle with their record label. And he's spoken of his frustration over Prospect Park LLC's failure to pay him on time for his work on their last five albums.

The company last month launched a lawsuit against Ivan Moody and co, accusing them of breaching contract over a best-of compilation and the recording schedule for their next title - and adding that they were attempting to "cash in" before Moody became too ill to remain on board.

Five Finger Death Punch responded in detail, saying the frontman had received medical attention for his addiction issues and saying of label boss Jeff Kwatinetz: "Desperate people do desperate things."

Now Churko has said in a statement: "Prospect Park claims that if Five Finger Death Punch were to hire a different producer, they could sell well over a million records, maybe even two million.

"Honestly, there hasn't been a record in the hard rock genre that has achieved anywhere close to those sales in a two-year period of time. With 5FDP, I have the privilege of working with gifted and prolific songwriters, whose singer, Ivan Moody, has a truly special and distinctive voice.

"Not only have they sold over four million records at a time when general album sales are diminishing - 5FDP have created a solid brand and raised thousands of dollars for veteran charities." Read more here.
