Courtney Love and Eric Erlandson in contract row with their label...

Courtney Love and ERIC ERLANDSON from Hole are being sued by the band’s own label Geffen.

Geffen have filed a suit against the pair’s company Doll Head Inc over an alleged breach of contract.

Hole announced their intention to leave the label last month, but Geffen claim the band still owe them another five albums.

Love and Erlandson maintain that they are not beholden to the contract with Geffen as under Californian laws, no ‘personal services contract’ can last more than seven years.But Geffen argue that a recording contracts are not personal services agreements. They want undisclosed damages and to prevent the pair recording under the name Hole for any other record label.

The band’s UK spokesperson told nme.com that a suit had been filed, but said there was no further comment from either the band or Geffen at this stage.
