Zoltan Bathory commented:

Ha Another one in Bloomberg. The title reads: How U.S.-Russia Diplomacy Went Heavy Metal In the new Cold War, pragmatic dialogue is out. Quoting Five Finger Death Punch is in

Well. let me just say. Its especially interesting that we just happened to be in Russia at the moment. We had a fantastic show at the Stadium in Moscow yesterday The energy of the crowd was incredible. We love our Russian fans just as much as they love us They are at the airport when we arrive, follow us all over Europe, all the way to America, even to South America We see their faces and we see their sawn together Half-Russian-Half-American flags everywhere We are family Music Unites.

I can tell you. between the people there is NO hate there is NO cold war here so lets NOT make one. I grew up on this side of the iron curtain in communism so I have ACTUAL memories of the cold war. Even back then though we were told by the communist media that America was the Enemy Nobody and I mean nobody sane actually believed that We loved American Music, American culture and the American people We understood the difference between propaganda and reality

Just as I ran into some Iranian kids in the elevator as they were taking photos they actually said please dont believe the media they are lying to you! We dont hate America and they tried to explain that regular (especially younger) people dont feel that way whatsoever
The media needs to be responsible with their words choosing ratings over peace is irresponsible

So lets tone down the hysteria and try harder with that dialogue色

It looks like Five Finger Death Punch and Prospect Park have officially settled their legal dispute. The band was originallysued by the label due to claims that they were shamelessly attempting to cash in before the anticipated downfall of their addicted bandmate [Ivan Moody]” and trying to push out low quality music. The band then fired back by hitting the label with a$1 million lawsuit of their own claiming the label was essentially trying use them because they are in debt and know that Five Finger Death Punch are profitable. All of this has apparently been settled, making it so a new greatest hits collection, which features two new songs, and the band’s long awaited new album will finally see the light of day. Once those efforts are released, Prospect Park will be out of the picture allowing Five Finger Death Punch to move on to their new label Rise Records. Five Finger Death Punch told Variety the following:

The band Five Finger Death Punch and its label, Prospect Park, have resolved their dispute and differences.

Bathory on Moody’s drinking:

Hes been battling his demons for a long, long time, actually since Ive known him. Hes always had an issue and sometimes hes great, sometimes hes not. Its a battle. He doesnt havent a substance issue, hes always had a drinking issue. I started to realize that it was a real misalignment, its a real illness. It cant simply be discarded like, Why cant you get yourself straight? Its not that simple. So hes battling this and hes trying. Hes been in rehab a few times, hes been in for a longer period of time now.

Bathory on Moody’s current state:

The last three shows were the best shows Ive seen him do for years. He looked happy and he looked healthier. Obviously, the whole band is around him and everybodys supporting him and trying to be brothers and understanding and trying to keep him straight. So cross your fingers, I think this is the time when he can do it.

In other news, Bathory also mentioned that the band are hoping their new album will finally see the light of day eraly next year.
