Drummer Jeremy Spencer has shared an official press statement and announced that he leaved from Five Finger Death Punch. On statement, he has revealed the reason of his departure.

Here’s the statement:

“This decision has been weighing on me for months; and now the time has finally come I started to play when I was six 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.”

During the band’s recent shows, Scale The Summit drummer Charlie Engen filled in for Jeremy Spencer. The band fully supports his decision.

Five Finger Death Punch’s latest album “And Justice For None” was released on May 18, 2018.
