Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody To Release Illustrated Book Of Original Poems

Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody will be releasing an illustrated book of original poems, titled “Dirty Poetry,” this fall via Z2 Comics. You can pre-order that effort HERE.

Here’s a description of the book:

“Ever wondered what really lies beyond “where the sidewalk ends?” From the wonderfully twisted mind of the front man of Five Finger Death Punch; “Ivan Moody’s Dirty Poetry” is a book of original poems punctuated with dark art that’s guaranteed to inspire upside-down dreamscapes in the minds of its readers. Written by Ivan Moody himself, with beautifully haunting ink and watercolor illustrations by Blake Armstrong, Z2 Comics offers this Halloween treat to readers everywhere this October!”

Moody commented:

“Out of all the projects I’ve undertaken, this is something truly out of the ordinary, completely unorthodox, and without ‘creative walls.’ It is by far the oddest thing I’ve ever done (and that’s saying something). I had no idea how this would turn out but thankfully — between Blake and myself — I’m ecstatic with this first edition of ‘Dirty Poetry’. I’m intrigued and excited to share this full dose of my thought-provoking/chaotic and emotionally stimulating artistic vision with all of you. Welcome… to my rabbit hole.”

Armstrong added:

“‘Dirty Poetry’ definitely stands out as one of the more free and unique creative experiences I’ve had in my career. Ivan’s overall vision for this book was so twisted and tantalizing it would have been hard to keep me away from it. Our collaboration was truly a blast and I think the love shows on every page. My only hope is that the readers enjoy the book at least half as much as we did working on it. It’s gratifying to be a part of something so weird, unexpected and special.”

Live music is starting up again, but we can’t forget the last 15 months where these critical members of our music community were unable to work. We need to get together and support our industry.”

“…We are heading to the studio to begin recording our new album (due in 2022) – and later this summer we are also planning to re-record our 1st album – The Way Of The Fist – (which turns 15 years old next year) It was a truly self produced DIY album, mostly recorded in my living room, so we thought it would be really interesting to hear it with a proper big production🤘”
