In The News

Every wild ride must come to an end so rest in peace Robert Mcallister and give our regards to Lemmy. We’ll miss you always.”

Avenged Sevenfold have exercised their right under California law to leave their labelWarner Bros. Records. The band are utilising the “seven year rule” of the California Labor Code which allows artists the ability to leave personal service contracts under certain circumstances after seven years have passed. However Warner Bros. Records has filed a breach-of-contract suit. The label claims that they’ve invested money in the band’s future, as well as financing a live CD/DVD, so the band’s opt out is unfair and breaches good-faith and fair dealings. In good news, Avenged Sevenfold are currently writing a new album and hope to have it released by the end of 2016.
