According to Blabbermouth, Jeremy Spencer will be parting ways with Five Finger Death Punch. After missing out on part of their recent tour due to back surgery, he has decided to part ways with the band.  He says the physical toll drumming has taken on his body, has made it where he can't deliver a performance that he's proud of.   Five Finger Death Punch fully support Jeremy's decision, and the parting of ways sounds very amicable.

Blabbermouth shared this statement:

"This decision has been weighing on me for months; and now the time has finally come.  I started to play when I was six years old, and I feel fortunate that my body has provided me with several decades of doing what I love most: drumming. However, the rigorous physical wear and tear has got me to the point where I feel I can no longer deliver a performance that brings me satisfaction and joy. I feel the band deserves to get someone with the fire and energy, capable of delivering the performance that the fans deserve. Like you, I will be cheering them on to continue making great music as they tour the world and bring exciting shows to all our cherished fans."
