Mute Math Settles Issues With Warner Brothers, Word Records

Indie-rock band MUTE MATH recently announced that it has settled its lawsuit against WARNER BROTHERS and WORD RECORDS for the use of the label “Christian” in conjunction with the band and its music.
“Our [independent] label TELEPROMPT has just inked a new and improved deal with WARNER BROTHERS that enables us to keep making and selling music exactly as we want. It feels incredible to finally have this legal crap out of the way,” says MUTE MATH frontman PAUL MEANY on the band’s MYSPACE blog.
The long elusive self-titled LP will release nationwide on SEPTEMBER 26. Up to this point it has only been available on the band’s Web site and at shows. The band says that the upcoming release date is the reason it dropped off the WARPED TOUR last week, as it went back to the studio to re-master the record. The project will also include some additional tracks from the RESET EP, released in 2004 by WORD. A bonus live EP will be included in the first pressing.
