Record Label Sues Stone Temple Pilots


The record label of the alternative rock band the Stone Temple Pilots has sued the group, claiming that the members of the band tried to end their recording contract early. Atlantic Records, which is part of the Warner Music Group Corp, filed the lawsuit against the lead singer of the group, Scott Weiland, and the drummer, Eric Kretz.

However, the group has expressed surprise at the fact that the record label has filed a lawsuit against it, and issued a statement reading: “Stone Temple Pilots were deeply disappointed to see that Atlantic filed a surprise lawsuit against two members…when they were in the middle of what were believed to be cordial and positive discussions about returning to the studio to make a new album after 5 years.”

Famous in the 1990s, the Stone Temple Pilots reunited last month for their first national tour in around eight years. The lawsuit claims that the record company wanted the band to record a seventh album and possibly up to two more albums.

However, it alleges that the bans threatened to stop recording immediately unless some significant changes were made by Atlantic.
