We’ve been dealing with serious juridical issues these past few weeks, as Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein (ex-Misfits), who trademarked the name DOYLE during 2012, requested the whole proprietary rights over the commercial use of the name “DOYLE”.
As a band releasing a brand new album in a couple of months, and living this journey alongside highly involved people such as label-persons and various co-workers, we strongly wanted to avoid the possibility of a lawsuit coming from the U.S. The band therefore decided to rename themselves to “DOYLE AIRENCE”.
This name change is the result of a long negotiation, and the only way for them to keep their projects and artistic freedom unaffected.
Here are the “Monolith” updated release dates :
October 11th, 2013 (Germany/Austria/Switzerland, Finland, digital world)
October 14th, 2013 (France, Europe)
October 29th, 2013 (North America)
