A message to the fans from Five Finger Death Punch. "The rumors are true,
only with less spins and no turbulence. Every band has its growing pains,
and after 18 months in the trenches, relentless touring and living together,
we all came to a conclusion that a change had to be made."
"It was a mutual agreement between the band and Darrell, and both parties wanted to handle this with class and as friends in our own time and on our own terms, however the rumor mill seems to work faste than anyone thought..."
"It was a swift and smooth transition and we all remain good friends. All clichés aside we really wish him the best on his musical endeavors."
"As for us, Darrell joined the band after our debut album was already recorded, so the direction and sound of Five Finger Death Punch obviously won't change a bit."
Renowned shredder and the band's long time friend Jason Hook just finished up his contractual obligations with Alice Cooper, and he'll be taking over
the second guitarist post. Zoltan exclaims, "He's an unbelievable player,
and a good friend of all of us, so we hope our fans will welcome him in the
Death Punch crew."
"We are pushing forward; the European tour is just a couple of weeks away,
we're planning on more international tours in 09 and the release of our next
record sometime this summer. We'd also like to use this opportunity to
thank all of our fans for their dedication and their continuous support....
It's a rarity these days, but you guys are truly amazing and made this band
a big success... See you all in the pit!"
