Jim Peterik, the band's co-founder agreed on his Twitter account, saying he and the publisher will issue a cease and desist order.

Davis has refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples citing her beliefs as an apostolic Christian, ABC News reported.

She also will not step down from her job as Rowan County clerk and was jailed last week for contempt of court for not issuing the marriage licenses despite the Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.

She is expected to return to her job on Friday or Monday, The Associated Press reported.

Deputy clerks have been issuing licenses. If Davis instructs them to stop, deputy clerk Brian Mason said he would refuse, telling her that he must follow a federal judge's order to issue licenses.

If she interferes with the issuing of licenses, U.S. District Judge David Bunning said she could go back to jail, The AP reported.
