Band Embroiled in
Bitter Legal Battle
Long-brewing legal issues between Geezër and their Florida-based label, Ghoul Tone Records, have now come to a head — a bitter batter over unpaid royalties that has pitted the two parties against each other in a Miami courtroom — and one that is only further delaying the release of the band's highly anticipated third album, Skull Crushërz.
According to official court documents, founding Geezër band members, whose legal names are, Harvey Ebenezer Geezerbaum, Leonard Gavriel Geezerbaum and James Calvin Sizemore III are suing Ghoul Tone Records International for a reported $174,000 in back royalties. The band's recently deceased co-founding drummer, Victor Farnsworth is not named in the suit.

new album is now a mystery.
"This is an outrage!" declared Ghoul Tone Senior Vice President Skip Fruchtman during recent court proceedings. "The band is just pissed off because we wouldn't let 'em cover another Motörhead tune," he continued. However, under sworn testimony, bassist Calvin Sizemore accused the label of being "myopic tight asses," and threatened to, "take our damn master reels over to the nice kids at Epitaph!"
"No matter what yo, our F-ing new record WILL be coming out SOON, yo!" shouted the group's street thug back-up singer, Lil' Shoogie as she was dragged from the courtroom by local law enforcement officers. Neither Harvey nor Leonard have been available for comment.
The battle is expected to wage on throughout the steamy summer months, and perhaps into the fall. Stand by for further details.
