The California rockers sue their record label, INO, over their album 'When Angels and Serpents Dance's advance in cash for recording the follow-up album.

California rockers are suing their record label for breach of contract. The "" hitmakers claim executives at Tennessee-based INO Records backtracked on a deal to pay the band an advance for its next album.

In the suit, frontman Sonny Sandoval and his bandmates allege INO bosses were required to provide a $400,000 advance in November, when the group started recording the follow-up to 2008's "". P.O.D. signed with INO in February, 2007 after parting company with Atlantic Records.

Unfortunately, the suit does not reveal in detail about INO's position and the label doesn't give any respond to a request for comment. Although the suit does not specify damages, the P.O.D.'s Nashville-based attorney, John R. Jacobson, told Billboard that the band "will seek at least the $400,000" due from the label and possibly more.
