Cruxshadows suit against former label survives motion to dismiss

The Cruxshadows (“CXS”) “is one of the biggest names currently in the goth scene.”  They are a popular darkwave band based out of Florida.

Last Spring, CXS sued its former label over unpaid royalties.  The complaint alleges that Dancing Ferret Discs failed to pay all the royalties due to CXS under a licensing agreement and that Dancing Ferret Discs continued to sell the music even after the expiration of their licensing agreement.

A copy of the complaint can be found at this link.

Dancing Ferret Discs moved to dismiss the lawsuit.  And last week the court denied that motion.
A copy of the order denying the motion to dismiss can be found here.

In other CXS news, they just released their single “Valkryie” on September 12.  The track is available on iTunes.  Better yet, according to the lead singer’s twitter, a whole new album is on the way.  On September 28, Rogue (@thecruxshadows) tweeted “The new album is called As the Dark Against My Halo AKA Dark Halo for short.  Still not done. So much to do. Please help hype Valkyrie!”

Rogue’s wish is my command.
