The Press Release:
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have announced today (12/18) that after 14 years drummer Jeremy Spencer will be leaving the band. After sitting out the Fall leg of the group’s recent co-headlining tour with Breaking Benjamin, Jeremy underwent a second back surgery and will need a significant amount of time to recover; the band fully supports his decision.
“This decision has been weighing on me for months; and now the time has finally come,” explains Jeremy Spencer. “I started to play when I was 6 years old, and I feel fortunate that my body has provided me with several decades of doing what I love most: drumming. However, the rigorous physical wear and tear has got me to the point where I feel I can no longer deliver a performance that brings me satisfaction and joy. I feel the band deserves to get someone with the fire and energy, capable of delivering the performance that the fans deserve. Like you, I will be cheering them on to continue making great music as they tour the world and bring exciting shows to all our cherished fans.” Continue reading Drummer Jeremy Spencer Leaves Five Finger Death Punch!!!→

I’ve been listening to FFDP since their debut “The Way Of The Fist” and have even caught them in concert a couple of times so I am speaking with some background on this one. The band is getting ready to unleash their third album on the public which is called “American Capitalist” and the first single being unveiled to the masses comes with “Under And Over It”. With the song rising the ranks on the Active Rock charts I felt it’s a good idea to let you readers know what we are in store for. Here we go.

“The Way Of The Fist” is an exciting Metal album from an equally exciting band called Five Finger Death Punch. The band has seen their own popularity rise over the last few months and was now bringing an energetic show to the Big Apple with special guest openers In This Moment and Bury Your Dead. We were on point to report on the performance and made sure to shoot a lot of photos for those fans of the live scene.

Artist: Five Finger Death Punch Venue: Fillmore NY (New York, NY) Opener: In This Moment, Bury Your Dead Date: 10/23/2008 Label: Firm Music
Five Finger Death Punch has been taking no prisoners with their debut CD “The Way Of The Fist’ since it was released and that is never a bad thing to find happening for a new band. The CD is an aggressive Heavy Metal recording with lots of great guitars, thundering drum patterns and easy to get into choruses. They were moving steadily along with the album but their appearance on the Family Values tour of 2007 with Korn, Evanescence, Trivium, Hellyeah and Flyleaf seemed to seal the deal in their rising popularity. Having missed that particular tour I was happy to be able to be a part of the action that was going on in NYC this evening. My night had already started out well since it was CMJ week and I had attended a gathering of the areas industry folks and was treated to some new live Metal and Hard Rock from both Autumn Black and Ionia. Of course, that is an entirely different report on the site, so look for that should you want the scoop about that part of the day. Now it was over to the Fillmore NY to see this high energy band that had wisely brought along those other rising stars of In This Moment along with them. The lead off band would be Bury Your Dead and here is how the night progressed. Continue reading Five Finger Death Punch @ Fillmore at Irving Plaza (10/23/2008)→
