Moody’s statement:

“To All Five Finger Death Punch Fans:

I wanted to write to all of you and express my deep regret for not being able to finish the last few shows on our European summer tour.

I am in a treatment facility addressing the addiction issues that have interfered with everything in my life.

I love you guys and I love my band… It’s what I do and I can’t imagine my life without it. I am 100% committed to getting healthy so I can get back on stage with Five Finger Death Punch.

At this point, I AM ON TRACK TO RETURN TO THE BAND WITH A VENGEANCE in Springfield, IL, when we begin the next leg of our North American tour dates. It’s my intention to sing at each and every future show we are committed to, in North America and in Europe. I can’t wait to put all of this behind me and move forward.

I’d like to thank Tommy Vext for doing such a great job filling in for me while I was away. I’d like to thank my brothers in 5FDP for supporting me through these hard times. We’ve been through hell and back and we’re not gonna stop here.

I would also like to thank my family & friends for standing behind me while I take care of what I need to regarding my health. But most importantly, I’d like to thank you, the fans, for your unwavering support as I recover.

This has not been an easy year for me, but your encouragement and positivity is what keeps me going.

See all you Knuckleheads on August 19th!!
Ivan Moody“

Five Finger Death Punch issued the following statement:

“Five Finger Death Punch announced today that they will immediately return to Tilburg to play a free show for any ticket holders from the now infamous 013 performance a week prior.

Said guitar player Zoltan Bathory, “Last Monday’s show was an avalanche of events largely out of our control. We could sit here all day and apologize but our fans in the Netherlands deserve better than that. They’ve stuck with us all these years and helped get us to where we are today. So, we managed to re-route our tour and come back to Tilburg and play a free show on our day off – because actions speak louder than words.”

This show will take place in the same venue, the 013 in Tilburg. Ticket holders of last week’s show will promptly receive an email from the venue with instructions on how to obtain their free guaranteed priority tickets. This email will include a link to directly download e-tickets for the show.

Other fans interested in attending this unique show should closely follow the announcements on the venue’s website http://www.013.nl on Friday morning to get access. After the original ticket holders get their priority tickets, a link will be made available where people can order free tickets while stock lasts.”
