Martin Kielty of TeamRock.com reports that Five Finger Death Punch have announced they’ll complete their current North American tour without frontman Ivan Moody.
According to the report, Moody “suffered what he called a ‘mental moment’ on stage at the weekend, appearing to claim that his mother was dying, when his sister said she wasn’t.
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory says: “Ivan is our brother and we fully and wholeheartedly support him in taking care of himself so he can get well as soon as possible…”
“We discussed cancelling the remaining shows, but the response from the other bands on the tour was so overwhelmingly supportive that we decided to move forward.”
Last year Moody’s drunken antics led his colleagues to abandon him on stage. He later attended rehab and the band adjusted their touring behaviour to help him control his issues.
Five Finger Death Punch’s current run ends on December 10.
