POD have announced they are to sue their record label for breach of contract.
The Christian rockers have filed the action against Tennessee label INO Records, claiming the label has failed to pay them $400,000 (£250,000) promised as an advance.
The band also say that as a result of the lawsuit they will “abandoned their obligations to INO.”
According to Billboard, the band’s lawyer John R Jacobson has said the band “will seek at least the $400,000 due from the label, and possibly more.”
POD are currently writing the follow-up to their 2008 album ‘When Angels And Serpents Dance’ and play two UK shows in June.
