Late tonight, the internet was abuzz with rumors that A Day To Remember were going to be filing a lawsuit against their label, Victory Records, alleging breach of contract. While it’s unclear if any new lawsuit exists, AP did uncover a PDF of a May 31, 2011, lawsuit filed by the members of ADTR in U.S. District Court in Tennessee. This particular lawsuit, which names Victory Records as a defendant, does allege breach of contract, while also stating that the band feel they have fulfilled their contractual obligations; in addition, ADTR is seeking “an accounting of the Defendants to disclose fully and accurately monies earned and amounts due and owing to” them. You can view the entire document below; however, it’s also unclear whether any judgment has been rendered in this particular lawsuit.
AP is reaching out to the label and the band for comment; we’ll update this post with information as we have it.
