Five Finger Death Punch's Jeremy Spencer about Memphis onstage meltdown: "It was an off night"


Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer was recently interviewed by TotalRock Radio, below you can read some excerpts.

About Five Finger Death Punch performance last month in Memphis, Spencer said: "It's not a big deal. We were getting ready to go on. It was a festival show, and there were thousands of people there. We were really struggling getting our in-ear monitors figured out and the monitors squared away; we were just having sound problems. We started getting... We started bickering amongst ourselves, kind of fighting, before we went on. And then Ivan Moody maybe took it a little harder than the rest of us. And, you know, he's an emotional guy; you get what you get with him, and that's the same in the songs. If he's pissed off, you're gonna know about it; if he's happy about something, you'll know about that."

He continued: "But the show just... it was an off night, and we were just kind of taking it out in the wrong way on stage towards each other, maybe. And it just... We weren't proud of it. It was one of those things. But, you know, one time in ten years to have an off night and fight amongst family, it happens. The fans certainly didn't deserve to have to be a part of that, and we're not happy about it. We hope we can go there and make it right at some point. But, you know, we are human, and it was one bad night. We certainly apologize, and we hope to make it up to them. We've been together ten years. It's a long relationship. Some days are better than others. Some days we're gonna have fights, man. That's just how it goes."
