Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer is working on a new book that he said will be “just as crazy” as his 2014 autobiography, Death Punch’d: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem. Speaking with “Big Smash Radio,” Spencer revealed, “I’m halfway done with the first draft, so it’s in the infant stages. And it’s just about from the day I got out of rehab up until now.” He added, “(Death Punch’d) was a lot of using and partying, but this is sober. But it’s still crazy. I mean, there’s been a lot of life that’s happened.”

Spencer told us a while back how his first book came about: [“I decided to clean myself up and I went into rehab a few years ago, and the day I got out I basically just started writing my whole life as a therapeutic kind of exercise. I was writing about a thousand to two thousand words a day. I would do it on tour, in the tour bus, wherever we were, and it started to shape up into something kind of interesting.”] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . kind of interesting.)

  • Death Punch’d: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem hit the Top 10 on the New York Times Celebrities Best Sellers list upon its release in September 2014.
  • Spencer said at the time that he’d “received dozens of messages sharing how my story has inspired others to seek help or stay clean.”
  • Spencer committed a percentage of his personal income from the book to support NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, which represents more than 75,000 addiction counselors, educators and other addiction-focused health care professionals in the United States, Canada and abroad.
  • Five Finger Death Punch is playing several festivals this month, including Rock On The Range and Rocklahoma, and recently announced a new co-headlining arena tour with Shinedown that will kick off on October 18th in Little Rock, Arkansas.
