Wavves Feuds with Warner Bros., Threatens to Leak New Album 'V'

Wavves Feuds with Warner Bros., Threatens to Leak New Album 'V'
This is shaping up to be a big summer for Wavves, as the Nathan Williams-led pop-punk project has been plotting two new albums. The Cloud Nothings collaboration No Life for Me is already out, and as Wavves gears up for another new LP, Williams has become embroiled in a battle with his label Warner Bros. Records.

Williams has been tweeting about the feud for the last couple of days, writing messages like "i hate you @wbr," complaining that his artwork had been rejected, and sneering about "sucubus major labels." He also revealed that the album will be called V (as it will be Wavves' fifth official full-length).

The songwriter got extra angry on Thursday evening (July 16). After posting the song "Way Too Much" on SoundCloud, he accused Warner of filing a copyright claim to have it taken down. He then threatened to leak his album and shared the ultra simple new artwork (above), which he's evidently using in place of the rejected artwork.

Update: Wavves shared a piece of artwork taken from a tarot card. It's not clear if this is the artwork that previously got rejected, or if this is the new album cover. Read the full string of tweets on the matter below. Wavves had previously planned to release the album in August, but there's no word as to whether these clashes with Warner Bros. will have any impact on when V arrives.
