Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody has revealed that he plans to leave the band in a shocking radio interview, saying, "Death Punch and I have kind of come to a crossroads."
According to RockFeed, Moody opened up in the interview and compared his departure from Five Finger Death Punch's tour last year to a Kanye West-like meltdown. “I had a meltdown. I was like Kanye without the money,” Moody said.
Later in the interview, Moody announced that he would be leaving FFDP at the end of 2017 to work on his new band, Villian:
“To be completely honest with you, Death Punch and I have kind of come to a crossroads. We’re very proud of what we’ve done – years and years and years of work…,” he said.”
“It’s time for us to take our way and go do something else, so after this year… my new band, Villain… I’m so excited.”
Five Finger Death Punch have finished recording a new album but are in the middle of a lawsuit with their label Prospect Park to be released from their contract.
The band has yet to comment.
