Members Of Art Of Anarchy File A $1.2 Million Lawsuit Against Their Frontman Scott Stapp

According to SIlive.com, Vice Inc., whose chief executive officer and principal executive officer are Art Of Anarchy’s Jonathan Votta and Vince Votta, have filed a $1.2 million dollar lawsuit against frontman Scott Stapp (Creed, etc.) for allegedly breaching his contract by not touring with the band and not taking part in promotional photo and video shoots, as well as publicity events. The claim also says that the group, who also feature John Moyer (Disturbed) and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), lost their recording contract with Century Media due to Stapp failing to fulfill his contractual obligations. Vice also say that they loaned Stapp $200,000, which he never repayed. He also only played 18 dates with the band in 2017, and never showed up for a video shoot on the deck of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on the Hudson River in Manhattan in October 2017. Stapp joined the band in 2016 as a replacement for the late Scott Weiland, who was also sued by Art Of Anarchy for similar reasons. In that case, the band wanted to recover the $230,000 they paid him, plus an additional $20 million for damages. Prior to his death, Weiland called the group a scam and counter-sued.

Art Of Anarchy Premiere “Echo Of A Scream” Music Video

Art Of Anarchy, the band featuring Scott Stapp (Creed), John Moyer (Disturbed), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Jon Votta and Vince Votta, have premiered a new video for their song “Echo Of A Scream,” via Loudwire. This song is from their latest album “The Madness.”

Moyer commented:

“‘Echo Of A Scream‘ has an interesting history en route to its eventual completion. I really enjoy collaborating with artists. Working with other creative minds is a great way to write uniquely powerful songs that go beyond just one person’s vision. ‘Echo of a Scream’ is a testament to that. The original music bed was written by myself and Logan Mader of Once Human a few years ago for a project that never materialized.

I always loved the music and I thought it might be a good fit for Art Of Anarchy. As I was presenting it to the band I also asked David Draiman if he would be gracious enough to contribute to it as well. He came up with some great melody lines that combined with what Scott had for the song really took it over the top. By the time Bumblefoot and the Votta brothers put their spin on it, it really came alive.”

This song is from their new album “The Madness,” which will be available March 24.

Stapp commented:

“The track ‘Echo of a Scream’ is a chronicle of the curse of self-doubt. It speaks to a place in life when confidence has been lost and you feel like your a shell of your former self or as the lyric describes it, an ‘echo of a scream.’ It touches on the internal dialog within the mind of someone wrestling with feeling disconnected from who they really are and lost in trying to find their way back to their true self. Its two competing voices, the negative self talk voice contrasted with the voice trying to fight it and overcome it.”

“John Moyer brought the initial music bed to the band and we all really liked the drive and energy so we decided to track it. John, while out with his other band Disturbed, played the music for David Draiman and David came up with a great melody idea for the chorus. Zac Maloy and I wrote the lyrics and then the melodies for the verses and the rest is history. This song was a true collaborative effort with Bumblefoot and John Votta writing monster solos. I’m really happy with how the song came out and its one of my favorites on the record.”

Art Of Anarchy Premiere New Song “No Surrender”

Art Of Anarchy, the band featuring Scott Stapp (Creed), John Moyer (Disturbed), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Jon Votta and Vince Votta, have premiered a new song titled “No Surrender.” This song is from their new album “The Madness,” which will be available March 24.

Stapp commented:

“In ‘No Surrender’, I addressed those moments in life where you’ve reached a personal crossroads or crisis. That place where your back is against the wall and your left with two choices: cave in and crumble, allowing whatever circumstance to break you forever, or to rise up and fight through holding on to that never give up spirit that lies deep within. I detail in the verses personal experiences, as I lived them, that have taken me to that critical place of choice. Am I to give up, stay down and fade away, or get up, fight on and never surrender?”
