Five Finger Death Punch Drummer Drops Off Fall Tour, Replacement Announced
Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer will sit out the band's fall co-headlining tour with Breaking Benjamin to undergo back surgery. An official press statement confirmed the news.
Drum prodigy “The Engine” will be filling in for him behind the kit. Interestingly enough, no immediate information on the Internet can be found on a drummer going by the moniker "The Engine," and a full name was not revealed.
For the summer leg of the tour, Five Finger and Breaking Benjamin gave back to two charity organizations that are close to their hearts. The former donated $95,000 to C.O.P.S - Concerns Of Police Survivors and the latter donated $95,000 to Prevent Child Abuse America.
Five Finger Death Punch are currently promoting their And Justice for None album, with the current single "Sham-Pain" currently in the Top 10 at radio. Breaking Benjamin, meanwhile, are promoting their Ember disc, which enjoyed success earlier this year with "Red Cold River" and also features the current Top 10 single "Torn in Two." The new tour leg starts tomorrow (Nov. 6) in Wichita, Kan. See the dates below.
