Five Finger Death Punch Reveals They Found New Drummer On Instagram

The power of social media...Why not look for a band member there?!

In a recent interview with the band, guitarist Jason Hook explained that they discovered drummer Charlie Engen because of Instagram.
Engen joined the band in December after Jeremy Spencer left.

Hook explained that technically Engen was actually found by their old drummer. Spencer followed Engen on Instagram and after seeing his skills, told the bandmates that he found them a fill in when he would eventually leave Five Finger Death Punch.

That worked out nicely didn't it?

Here’s an old jam to an @insta_chops loop (forget the name now). Insta has been super weird with my engagement lately, and then with the issue the other day I wanted a reset before I start posting all the new stuff I’ve been doing. Their (and obviously FB’s) algorithm is such a joke. I’ll have videos get 200k views with 25k likes and one a few posts later get 15k views with 3k likes, with both videos just being random jams nothing much different from one to the next. It’s not about the numbers to me I couldn’t care less about that, I’m just trying to share ideas with people that follow me. I’ll have people message me like “why aren’t you posting?” because the videos just straight up aren’t showing up in their feed. It is what it is, I just find it a little suspect that I’ve never spent a dollar to promote anything, maybe this is their way of trying to entice me...
