FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Frontman Breaks Silence: "I'm In Treatment," Confirms His Return Date To The Stage

But is it too soon to return?

But is it too soon to return?

It's been a month since Five Finger Death Punch's infamous gig in The Netherlands, where frontman Ivan Moody announced to the crowd that this would be his last show with the band.  After some denials that nobody was buying,  Moody said he was going back to rehab, and Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext filled in on the remainder of the tour.

One month later, and Moody just released an official statement on the band's Facebook page, where he confirms he is in treatment:

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.

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

Is it really the best idea to already go back on the road so quickly after checking into rehab? August 19th is just over two months since Moody went on his tirade, and it's no secret of the type of trouble Moody can get in on the road. This wasn't even the first time Moody acted out.

Moody quit the band while performing onstage in April, and was in no condition to perform that night. The following day, Moody released a message saying he had "a mental breakdown" and didn't actually quit the band.

For everybody's sake, we hope Moody will be alright and the band and their crew will look after him on the road.
