Five Finger Death Punch, who just completed a whirlwind year of touring behind their new album And Justice For None (Eleven Seven Music), have announced a change in the ranks. After fourteen years drummer, Jeremy Spencer will be leaving the band. After sitting out the Fall leg of the group’s recent co-headlining tour with Breaking Benjamin, Jeremy underwent a second back surgery still needs much recovery time in the future. FFDP fully supports Jeremy’s decision. No announcement of a replacement has been made. YouTube star Charlie Engen sat in for Spencer on their recent run of tour dates in the USA.
“This decision has been weighing on me for months; and now the time has finally come,” explains Jeremy Spencer. “I started to play when I was 6 years old, and I feel fortunate that my body has provided me with several decades of doing what I love most: drumming. However, the rigorous physical wear and tear has got me to the point where I feel I can no longer deliver a performance that brings me satisfaction and joy. I feel the band deserves to get someone with the fire and energy, capable of delivering the performance that the fans deserve. Like you, I will be cheering them on to continue making great music as they tour the world and bring exciting shows to all our cherished fans.”
