Five Finger Death Punch Addresses Break Up Rumors, Release New Song Clip


After we first broke the news of the apparent onstage friction between the members of Five Finger Death Punch, everyone has been anxiously awaiting an official statement from the band confirming or denying the breakup rumors.

The band just released an official statement claiming that there were technical issues last night that led to a lot of frustration on stage with Ivan. He admits to handling it poorly, and apologized to the fans for his temper. But he has gone on to assure the fans that the band is far from finished (a few crew members, however, have lost their jobs) and they’ve even released a brand new song clip!

You can read the full statement below.

A message from Ivan: There were a lot of technical problems last night that were seemingly unsolvable. We had to make a decision whether to hit the stage crippled, without being able to hear ourselves; or, delay the start of the show – possibly for hours.We decided to proceed, but not being able to hear if I was in key, and just guessing where we were in the song frustrated me to the point that I lost my cool.I'm not saying I handled it appropriately. Matter of fact I've never been so embarrassed before. I apologize for taking out my anger on stage. You guys know me and you know how I pride myself on my live performances. I'd never want this to boil over in to something that epically wrong ever again. To some of our crew, good luck in your future endeavors we wish you the best – we also welcome our new monitor engineer Paul Weber.To our fans in Memphis – we'll make it up to you I promise, Houston we we will see you tonight. The rest of the world – yes we are coming.And to the haters… wipe that smirk off your face …We are not going anywhere … This “ain't my last dance!”We GOT YOUR SIX
