Stephen J. Cohen/Getty ImagesFive Finger Death Punch has shared a statement regarding their bizarre show in Tilburg, The Netherlands Monday night, during which frontman Ivan Moody declared, “This is my last show with Five Finger Death Punch.”
“Those who have followed 5FDP from the beginning can tell you there has always been an element of danger and unpredictability in our music and in our shows,” the band writes. “That’s rock ‘n’ roll.”
“When you do over 150 shows in a year, you will inevitably have a few derailments, but the train always keeps on moving,” the statement continues. “Last night in Tilburg was one of those instances, but as they say, you aren’t a race car driver if you don’t wreck a car or two.”
Five Finger’s next show is scheduled for this Wednesday, June 14 at Austria’s Nova Rock festival, and the band says they “can’t wait to put on an amazing show.” Presumably, Moody will be joining them.
Back in 2015, an onstage meltdown during FFDP’s show in Memphis led to rumors that the band was breaking up. Last December, the band finished their tour with All That Remains singer Phil Labonte in place of Moody as he recovered from unspecified illness.
