Vampire Weekend Frustrated by Artwork Lawsuit


Vampire Weekend


Frontman Ezra Koenig admits that this is the first time for them to deal with the law and that the learning process is quite 'frustrating'.

Rockers Vampire Weekend have spoken out about the multi-million dollar legal battle over their album cover art - calling the lawsuit "frustrating". The band is facing legal action from Kristen Kennis, the blonde featured on the front of their second album, "Contra", who has filed a $2 million lawsuit in Los Angeles alleging she never gave permission for the 1983 snap to be used on the cover.

Frontman Ezra Koenig admits he's baffled by the legal wrangling as none of the rockers have any idea how the case will play out, insisting he's "frustrated" because they can't give their side of the story.

He tells NME.com, "I think I can speak for all of us and say this is the first time any of us have ever been sued, so we're still learning how it works. There's so many things we could say about it but given we have no experience of it we're just keeping conversations to a journal for now, which is a little frustrating."

"There's nothing we can say about it. We're not trying to be mysterious. I imagine in the next few months there'll be plenty to talk about. Given it's our first time we just want to do it properly."
