Frontman Martin, who has previously disputed the claim, said on the band's website that the court case was instead driving him to produce finer tunes. "Some people are suing us at the moment and although it was initially a bit depressing, now it's become really inspiring," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"You think, 'Right, if everyone's trying to take away our best song, then we'd better write 25 better ones.' And so just at the point where I was thinking about getting fat and becoming complacent, I've been finding more inspiration. Now we've got more to prove than ever before," he added.
