Five Finger Death Punch Premiere New Song “Sham Pain”

Five Finger Death Punch have premiered a new song titled “Sham Pain.“ This track is from the band’s new album “And Justice For None,“ which will be released on May 18. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory commented:

“’Sham Pain’ is a lyrical snapshot of probably the biggest, yet most chaotic year of this band’s career. Everyone has a different way of dealing with the moments when life hands them lemons…some complain and some make lemonade. Us, we pour gasoline on it and then hit it with a rocket launcher. Sarcasm has always been our ‘Art of War’ (if from naming the band ‘Five Finger Death Punch’ you haven’t figured it out yet), but just wait until you see the video we made for this song.”

Five Finger Death Punch’s Chris Kael Celebrates 57 Days Of Sobriety

Ivan Moody’s struggles with substance abuse have been widely documented, but it appears he isn’t the only member of Five Finger Death Punch who has suffered with addiction. Chris Kael has revealed that he is currently celebrating 57 days of sobriety. You can read various social media posts from him below:

I’ve gotten away from sharing incredibly personal things here on the social networks. Even now, I’m not entirely comfortable opening up and telling this story. However, I woke up today to the universe telling me I needed to take a break from journaling and get part of my story on Twitter out to you. To help. To be that positive spark to someone, somewhere out there who needed these words as much as I needed to write them. I’m sharing the peace that I’m currently comfortably sharing. I continue to write in hopes that someday all of this will someday be available for you to read. I appreciate your own personal stories; but, for me, it’s important to stay positive and at arm’s length as I work through this. Having the break from work from December through April gave me a chance for some true introspection. Introspection revealing that some of the things I was doing were absolutely no longer working for me. I got hit HARD with depression combined with drinking and cocaine that had definitely gotten the best of me. I hit an incredibly depressing low in February, realized that things were no longer in my control, gave myself to the universe and sought help in rehab here in Vegas. I covered the story pretty extensively on Twitter this morning; so feel free to check it out there if you are so inclined. I look forward to traveling the world with @ffdp again beginning in April. I have a whole new appreciation for the job of which I’ve been given. I thank them for sticking by me as I went through all I had to go through to finally man up and seek help on my own. I also thank my wife of 17 years. She has silently and bravely dealt with far more than what would have crushed any other woman. Her loyalty, patience, TRUE love and resolve are unmatched by any other woman I’ve ever known. She is strong and has never broken. I am thankful for her far more than any social media post can convey. I look forward to discovering new intent and purpose in this job as I continue this journey forward. Clear and sober. Thanks to any of you who took the time to read this. With any luck, a spark has now been lit in one of you to take that step forward. You can do it.
