Artists fighting for the rights to their music has not been a quiet subject this year (looking at you, T Swift). The latest group to feud with their record label is Wavves – a couple days ago, the band’s front man, Nathan Williams, blasted Warner Bro. Records on Twitter when they took down a single that Wavves put up without their permission.

Stereogum reported that Williams took to Twitter on Tuesday, with the first of a barrage of tweets reading, “i hate you @wbr.” The ambiguity of the tweet ended when he wrote “you guys i literally hate @wbr they wanna pull ‘way too much’ already.” After Warner Bros. took it down, Williams first threatened to release the entire album; he then put out “Way Too Much” on SoundCloud and tweeted the link, adding “fuck it.”

Warner Bros. didn’t stop there. Williams tweeted a screenshot of an email from SoundCloud, claiming they would remove “Way Too Much” because it was copyrighted by Warner Bros. Records. As of right now, it’s still on SoundCloud.

Wavves recently released a new video for “Leave” from the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack (see here) and “No Life For Me”on SoundCloud from their upcoming collaboration with Cloud Nothings (listen here). However, these are unrelated to the Warner Bros. label.

Wavves’ Twitter feed right now is a mix of personal aggressive tweets, retweets from fans and WWE gifs. The timeline of tweets aimed at Warner Bros. is below.

Wavves also just released a new joint record with Cloud Nothings called No Life For Me (listen here). They also have two more new albums ready to be released later this year in 2015 and they recently announced tour dates with Twin Peaks, see details listed here. Finally, Nathan Williams has also started a new side project Spirit Club and released their self-titled debut album earlier this year (see here).
