Finger Death Punch Frontman Ivan Moody Planning To Turn Two Homes Into Recovery Centers

Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody, who has battled addiction in the past, is planning to convert two homes into recovery centers. One house will be in Las Vegas and it will be dedicated to helping young women. The other house will be in Colorado and it will be dedicated to helping young men.

Moody said the following in part:

“Everyone out there knows that I am active in my recovery. I pride myself on it. As a matter of fact it is the cornerstone to my life.”

He continued:

“I’m going to take my Vegas home and I’m going to do my best to turn it into a possible home for young women fighting in recovery, probably from the ages of about 18 to 40 depending. I’m not going to get into too many details but that is 1. The second part of that is I am also going to do the same thing back in Colorado except for young men. Same age group”

“It’s one thing to go to meetings and it’s another thing to be active and give back because that is what recovery is all about. It’s giving to someone else in place of the ones who gave to me.”

He also added:

“Everything I’ve done in my life has added up to THIS. It’s time to GIVE – Not monetarily. Mentally, physically and spiritually. It’s time to utilize ALL of the tools I’ve acquired throughout ‘my time.’ This FEELS right. That’s how I KNOW it’s the best ‘thing’ to do, and the correct path to take.”

Psychosexual (Ex-Five Finger Death Punch) Premiere “I Wanna Be The Blood In Your Cut” Video

Psychosexual, the band fronted by former Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer, have premiered a new video for their song “I Wanna Be The Blood In Your Cut.” This track is from the group’s latest album “Torch The Faith.” Spencer commented:

“‘I Wanna Be The Blood In Your Cut’ was something that came to me one night when I was having a goth moment, missing the sounds of Type O Negative, and even the nu-wave flavorings of Gary Numan. I felt like doing a dark, demented kind of love song, and I think that translates very well. As I was writing the lyrics, I was visualizing them coming to life via anime, which gave me the idea for not only the video, but to also sing a chorus in Japanese. I’ve always loved touring Japan, and the language has always fascinated me, so it all came together rather organically.”

Zoltan Bathory Says Five Finger Death Punch’s “Living The Dream” Video Doesn’t Have An Anti-Mask Message

Five Finger Death Punch recently received some backlash for their “Living The Dream“ video, which many believed had an anti-mask message. Now, guitarist Zoltan Bathory has issued a statement denying those claims.

Bathory said the following:

“As much as some *news sites* used “anti-mask” as a clickbait title (And I must applaud the capitalist in them or I myself would be a hypocrite) Let’s make this crystal clear: In a fictional story, Amongst shopping cart zombies, Tide Pod eating fat superheroes and all the other metaphors, why would anyone think the mask scene isn’t one.

The scene in question is not about the masks… it’s NOT an Anti-Mask message…
… in fact you can go to FiveFingerDeathPunch.com
Right now and buy some cool ones… 😁

If I must explain this 🤷‍♂️ The whole video is in the frame work of fiction, a dystopian nightmare of one of the founding fathers – right before he signs the constitution.

Just as I prefaced it: “We as artists, have a unique opportunity to portray and ridicule the absurd to prevent it from *becoming* reality.

The mask segments are about hypocrisy on the highest level. When the rules are made for you but those who made them are exempt. Pretty much the standard in all dictatorships and totalitarian regimes (I had the displeasure of growing up in one) hence the reference.

I often say, ask us!!! The immigrants… the Cubans, the Venezuelans, the North Koreans, anyone from the former Soviet block… Talk to us and we will tell you …. WE were lucky, because we had a place to escape to. We are fortunate that we could come here…. but If America is gone, where will you go?

We immigrants also remember how our freedom slipped away, how our rights were ripped from us, how we were kept under the thumb and in fear of our own governments. So maybe, just maybe… we have valuable experience we can tell you about, we can forewarn you of the things we have seen before.

So We the people must do everything in our power to stay free as a society. We must prevent the rise of tyranny in all shapes and forms, we must resist the would be dictators and the totalitarian ideals. This is what the founding fathers worried about and tried to prevent by creating the constitution. Believe it. America is a miracle, and I LOVE this country… and I will never shut up about it.

Anyway – not anti mask – and If you reduced this entire video to that scene and missed the metaphor behind it … Well… the good news is – It is STILL America so you have the right to have and even print your own opinion.”

Five Finger Death Punch Premiere “Living The Dream” Video

Five Finger Death Punch have premiered a new video for their song “Living The Dream.” This track is from the band’s latest album “F8.”

Zoltan Bathory commented:

“America is a beautiful idea that draws immigrants like myself from all over the world to the promised land of equality, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This idea is now under siege and certain events are starting to remind me of the things many of us came here to escape… It’s not a “left against right” problem but an evolutionary problem.

The growing pains of a civilization that without the necessary spiritual enlightenment, arrived a bit early to a level of technology where everyone is connected. The good news is that now everyone has a voice. The bad news is that now everyone has a voice.

So we are living in the manipulators’ paradise, where liars and hypocrites run unscathed, the news are just opinions, politics are a blood sport, and facts are determined by consensus instead of the truth. We as artists, however, have a unique opportunity to portray and ridicule the absurd to prevent it from becoming reality.”
