Billboard.com reports that Christian rockers P.O.D. are suing their record label, Tennessee-based INO Records, claiming that the company breached its contract by refusing to pay the band a $400,000 advance for its next album.According to the lawsuit, which was filed in Nashville, the group informed the label in November that it was ready to start recording the follow-up to 2008's "When Angels & Serpents Dance". The band claims INO refused to pay the option, explaining that P.O.D. had " 'abandoned' its obligations (to INO) under the agreement." "When Angels & Serpents Dance" sold 34,000 in the United States in its first week of release in April 2008 to debut at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Testify", registered a first-week tally of just over 54,000 back in February 2006 to land at No. 9. "When Angels & Serpents Dance" featured guest appearances from the MARLEY SISTERS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES singer Mike Muir and HELMET guitarist Page Hamilton.
