Remember that new Five Finger Death Punch album? No? That’s because there isn’t one, even if the band did share a snippet of a new song last year. They still owe Prospect Park a record before they move over to Rise, who they signed with last year. Prospect Park sued the band last year, claiming they’d be releasing a substandard album to get out of their deal. The band countersued and now there’s a new lawsuit from the band against the label for $1 million claiming the label is failing. No less than TMZ have uncovered the band’s new suit against their current label.
Five Finger Death Punch claim they’re being held hostage by their “sinking ship” of a record label … and they need a judge to rescue the band before it gets dragged under.
The heavy metal rockers destroy the label, Prospect Park, in a new lawsuit … saying 5FDP is probably the only profitable band on the roster. The band accused Prospect Park of cooking up a bogus lawsuit last year to keep the band recording … while it shopped the label.
The band says PP is drowning in debt and is more like “Prospect Dark” these days.
Prospect Park still claim that the band hasn’t delivered the album required under the contract and “expected by their fans.” So it seems like the band recorded an album and want it out on Rise, but want to get paid $1 million by their former label. Of course Prospect Park is going to fight it. It seems like it’s changed from last year, where the label claimed that the band just wanted to rush-release an album to get out of their contract. In short, the main winner is this legal battle as it enters it’s second year is entertainment lawyers.
