The change in name follows a battle with former drummer Shelton Woolright over rights to the band’s name. Woolright left Blindspott following the band’s break up in 2007 and is now a member of the UK based I Am Giant. A case has been set down for hearing in Auckland District Court on March 24 to determine if the band can use the name.
Blindspott lead singer Damian Alexander said attempts of “a resolution of any goodwill” had failed and he and fellow band members, Marcus Powell, Gareth Fleming, Karl Vilisini and Tristan Reilly, were taking court action “reluctantly”.
“It sucks actually. We’re doing this for the love of the music and for our fans…We want to keep contributing to NZ in some way, it’s very humbling and we just want to keep doing it…”
