Kyuss Lives! Members Respond to Lawsuit Over Band Name

by | Mar 15, 2012

Kyuss Lives! members John Garcia and Brant Bjork have released a statement responding to the lawsuit filed by Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and Scott Reeder over rights to the band name Kyuss.

Garcia and Bjork said, “We are both shocked and saddened that our friend and one time bandmate has chosen to file a lawsuit against us, especially after having positive discussions since our reformation. We look forward to resolving this private matter behind closed doors and moving forward with work on our new album and connecting with our amazing, loyal fans.”

Last week Homme and Reeder filed a federal lawsuit for “trademark infringement and consumer fraud,” calling the situation “a needless mess.”
