FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH DRUMMER POSTS VIDEO CLIPS TO PROMOTE BOOK

Video clips of Five Finger Death Punch drummer and co-founder Jeremy Spencer talking about the band's guitarists, Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook, has been posted online to promote the upcoming publication of Spencer's autobiography, Death Punch'd: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch's Metal Mayhem. Spencer told us how the 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. I'm really excited because I think that it's relatable and I think it might be able to help some people and people can relate to the story." .

The book is described as Spencer's "personal journey through the wild highs and terrifying lows of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle . . . a wry and rollicking tale of music, addiction and recovery, revealing the path that served as a catalyst to make him the man he is today."

Spencer has 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.

Spencer's book has already received advance accolades from rock legends and recovering alcoholics Alice Cooper and Rob Halford.

Five Finger Death Punch begins its fall tour with Volbeat on September 16th in Salt Lake City.
