A $1.8 million dollar litigation suit filed against Machine Head, manager Joseph Huston, record label Nuclear Blast, and current bassist Jared MacEachern by former Machine Head bassist Adam Duce was settled yesterday (July 2nd) in San Francisco, CA. The terms of the deal will remain confidential but both sides were able to reach a satisfactory agreement.
All claims in the dispute have been dropped against all parties named including but not limited to the $800,000 dollar suit against the band for breach of fiduciary duty and interference with prospective economic advantage, as well as the bizarre $1,000,000 dollar defamation suit against singer / guitarist Robb Flynn regarding a blog the guitarist posted.
Machine Head will hit the road in The US July 8th with Anti Mortem on the Killers & Kings tour, and will release their as-yet untitled eighth album (their first with new-bassist Jared MacEachern) in November. All tour dates can be found at this location
