Earache Records Suing Century Media Records Over Licensing Dispute

A report running over at (thanks MetalSucks) has word that Earache Records is suing Century Media Records. The two labels entered into a U.S licensing agreement early last year which saw Century Media take over the distribution of  Earache‘s physical catalog in the United States.

According to the report, Earache claims that Century Media owe them $250,000 in licensing fees and broke a promise to release numerous albums from the labels catalog. Century Media for their part are said to have claimed that the Earache breached the original licensing agreement.

Earache meanwhile also allege that Century Media have failed to account for royalties in a timely manner and went so far as to set release dates and album artwork for their albums without their own approval. They are seeking an injunction and the $250,000 in damages according to the report.

Avenged Sevenfold are planning to release a 10th anniversary edition of their 2003 album “Waking The Fallen“. Band frontman M. Shadows tells Loudwire:

“We’re going to put something together for the 10 year anniversary of “Waking The Fallen“, which is about 11 or 12 years now. We’ve been trying to think of something we could put together and we found some old demos that we did with Teppei from Thrice before we even did that record.”

“We also found some old footage with Jimmy playing some old shows at The Henry Fonda Theater in L.A., and the Ventura Theater. We’ll put together a cool DVD and some demo tracks and re-release “Waking The Fallen” for newer fans of the band that haven’t gotten that or don’t know about the history of the band.”

He also told the site that an extensive DVD is in the works:

“It is going to encompass the whole world that we’ve been filming for the last 5 years being in all these different countries with our camera guy. That’ll be a fun thing I think we’re going to film some big shows — I think we’re filming Mexico City coming up and we have some other shows we’re going to film and kind of intertwine the live performance with this huge DVD we want to do. That will probably come out before Christmas.”
