Ivan Moody at Disruptive Netherlands Gig: ‘This Is My Last Show With Five Finger Death Punch’


Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody just claimed that he’s out of the band. The incident happened onstage during a performance in Tilburg, Netherlands, on Monday (June 12) that was marred by issues.

The first two songs by FFDP were performed without Ivan Moody, who eventually took the stage to play from the third song onward. It is reported that singer Tommy Vext took Moody’s place for the first two songs. The show reportedly lasted only 40 minutes, with the band suddenly leaving the stage and not returning. A fan even wrote that guitarist Jason Hook threw his guitar down during “Burn MF.”

According to, the band “played out of time, disappeared after every song [for] minutes from the stage and seemed to quarrel among themselves.” The site also says sources claim there was a big fight between Moody and his bandmates and while onstage Moody claimed, “There’s only one f—-ing singer of Five Finger Death Punch, and I am [him].”

As for the video above, Moody clearly says, “I’ll let you know ahead of time — this is my last show with Five Finger Death Punch,” before making a throat-slit motion on his neck.

Back in April, it was reported that Moody was leaving FFDP to focus on another project after an interview with 106.7 KBPI surfaced. However, Moody claimed he was, in fact, not leaving the band in a lengthy statement. Late last year, Moody was replaced by All That Remains singer Phil Labonte for a number of shows following an onstage meltdown.

FFDP have a number of June dates remaining on their European tour, including a show Wednesday, June 14, at the Nova Rock fest in Austria. They’ve also been announced as headliners of a number of U.S. fall festivals.

Update: Only hours after the Netherlands gig, Five Finger Death Punch announced a late 2017 European arena tour with In Flames. Details here.
