Ivan Moody Says He's Done With Five Finger Death Punch
Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody announced that he is leaving the band, during a chaotic gig Monday in Tilburg, Netherlands.
“I’ll let you know ahead of time, this is my last show with Five Finger Death Punch," Moody said before making a throat-slitting motion.
The show reportedly lasted only 40 minutes and former Divine Heresy and Snot vocalist Tommy Vext sang the first two songs before Moody took the stage.
Dutch site BD.nl reported that FFDP “played out of time, disappeared after every song for minutes from the stage and seemed to quarrel among themselves.”
The site also reported that Moody was enraged that the band used a different singer and said, “There’s only one f***ing singer of Five Finger Death Punch, and I am [him].”
Moody's relationship with FFDP has been on shaky grounds this past year. He was replaced by All That Remains singer Phil Labonte for numerous shows after Moody's on-stage behaviour became erratic.
In April, reports came out that he said was leaving the band to pursue a new project but Moody later released a lengthy statement saying he was misunderstood.
