Hard-Fi fell out with their record label
The singer explained that the band members did not want to rush their recording sessions for Once Upon A Time In The West, but their bosses had other ideas.
"The label were breathing down our necks as soon as we started this album. When we were recording, the label wanted it yesterday. They didn't want to take any chances," Rich told The Sun.
"We built our own studio for the sessions so everything took a little longer than expected. We were in there working, experimenting with our new setup and the label weren't hearing anything.
"They started freaking out and talking about pulling the plug and putting us in a new studio with a new producer. I had to tell them to get a f**king grip."
Once Upon A Time In The West is released next week.
