Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti have found themselves the recipients of a lawsuit recently as the band’s former drummer Aaron Sperske has claimed he was illegally “squeezed out” of an “oral partnership” agreement that took place between the band back in 2008.

According to The Entertainment Law Digest Sperske is seeking $1 million in punitive damges, alleging that he and rest of the Haunted Graffiti members - Ariel Rosenberg, Tim Koh, and Kenny Gilmore - wrote the band’s upcoming record Mature Themes together, should be awarded 25 percent of its ownership, and therefore “entitled to profits from royalties and future shows.”

While Mature Themes is scheduled for release on Aug. 20 and 21 in the UK and U.S. respectively through 4AD, you can read Sperske entire lawsuit here. For an exclusive interview with Pink about the upcoming record, click here.
