Monday, September 28, 2020 1:14 PM PT

Portland, Oregon metal band Idle Hands have announced that they've been forced to relinquish their name as a result of U.S. trademark law.

The group has issued the following statement:

"Due to US trademark law, we are no longer able to perform or record music under the name Idle Hands. We have done everything in our power to retain the name but we cannot. While regrettable, these things happen.

"Subsequently, we are liquidating almost all Idle Hands merchandise at extremely reduced prices until sold out."
