Nickelback is battling its insurance company over a claim for the Canadian group's canceled tour dates this year.
Nickelback canceled more than 60 shows and filed a $13 million claim with Lloyd's of London to pay for losses. Now the company is suing the band, arguing that frontman Chad Kroeger knew about the cyst on his vocal cords prior to taking out the policy and did not disclose it.
Nickelback was touring to promote its 2014 album No Fixed Address and had already played dates in North America and Europe when the rest of the trek was canceled in June so Kroeger could undergo surgery to remove the cysts.
Nickelback reportedly plans to return to the road in 2016 but has not yet announced dates.
