The legal battle between Five Finger Death Punch and their label Prospect Park has taken a new turn with the band now suing the label in a bid to get off of it as well as for damages. According to a TMZ report on the matter, the band have accused the label of holding them hostage while the label itself was being shopped, among other claims. The group are seeking a release from the contract and a million in damages.
You may recall that previously Prospect Park had filed suit against the band, alleging that the group had been rushing out subpar music in a bid to get out of their contract and also ignoring the addiction issues of frontman Ivan Moody. The band refuted those claims. They have since agreed to sign with Rise Records. However they remain contractually bound to release their finished new studio album via Prospect Park and presumably commit to a proper touring cycle on it before fully being able to jump ship—which is what they they now seek to get out of.
