Five Finger Death Punch’s Jeremy Spencer is doing more than just drumming these days.
Spencer has set a September 2 publication date for a memoir, “Death Punch’d: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem,” which will detail his musical career as well as Spencer’s history of drug addiction and recovery.
In a statement announcing the 304-page book, Spencer says that, “The day I left treatment for alcohol and drug addiction, I decided to write my story. I was feeling raw and exposed and hoped just ‘getting it all out’ would be therapeutic. And, it was…It didn’t occur to me until I’d written fifty or sixty thousand (words) that my story might be helpful to others who need encouragement in pursuing their dreams and for those struggling with addiction.”
Spencer is planning to donate a portion of his royalties to the Association for Addiction Professionals, NAADAC. He’s also planning personal appearances and book signings when the book comes out and also during FFFDP’s upcoming North American tour with Volebeat, which begins September 16 in Salt Lake City.
