Jeremy Spencer on why he left 5FDP: “It’s like a runaway freight train of a business”


Former Five Finger Death Punch drummer and current Semi-Rotted vocalist Jeremy Spencer talked about his exit from the band in a new interview.

Spencer left the band in 2018 following some back problems. In this new interview, he added that he had asked the band to take time off from constant live shows, but the band refused.

About if he misses being in Five Finger Death Punch, Spencer said: “Sometimes I think I do. I think, Man, they’re out there doing big festivals again. I haven’t done them since 2018. I do miss it. However, I don’t miss going through the big machine again. I did it once, and it was amazing. But I wouldn’t want to go back to it again.”

Spencer added: “Five Finger Death Punch is runaway freight train of a business. So many people relied on us; we had 30 crew guys. It’s a big business. It’s a lot of pressure; you got to keep going. Everyone is like, ‘When’s the next record?’ I’m like, ‘Fuck you. You write a record.’ It’s not easy.”

About his final days in Five Finger Death Punch: “I told them, ‘If we can’t take a break at the end of this year, I’m going to step off the train.’ They didn’t want to stop, so I let myself off.”
