Rockstar Mayhem Tour Cancels Sacremento Show

The promoters of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem tour have posted the following message:

"Due to Northern California wild-fires, July 11th (Sacramento) Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Performance Rescheduled to Monday July 14th

"Concerned for the health and safety of our patrons, performers and employees, Live Nation announces a date change for Sacramento's scheduled Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival at The Sleep Train Amphitheater.

Five Finger Death Punch Hits The Road Again

The Pulse of Radio reports that FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH resumes its live schedule on Friday night (April 18) in Sayreville, New Jersey, performing for the first time since canceling a tour two months ago. The band had to pull off the road when singer Ivan Moody was diagnosed with a throat problem, but he told The Pulse of Radio that the time off was just what he needed. "The throat is fine," he said. "It's actually probably ten-fold of what it was towards the end there. I started developing calluses in the back of my throat, sat down and talked to a couple of doctors, and they gave me an ultimatum. They said, you know, you can keep going and possibly have nodes, or you can take a little bit of time away and prepare yourself for what's to come. In the long run, I think it's beneficial, I think we came out on top, so everything's cool."

The band recently announced the release of a brand new song called "Never Enough", which will be available as a free download to fans who have already bought or are now buying the band's debut album, "The Way of the Fist". In order to obtain the song, fans must go to fivefingerdeathpunch.com/bonus and insert the CD into their computers, after which the track can be accessed.

"The Way of the Fist" will be re-released on May 3 with "Never Enough" and two additional new tracks included.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will play some headlining shows next week before beginning a U.S. trek with DISTURBED on April 27 in Wichita, Kansas. The group will also appear on this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour with DISTURBED and SLIPKNOT.

“The Bleeding,” Rate The Music’s #1 testing song in the country for the 4th week in a row, has climbed the Active Rock Charts, arriving at #8 this week. The track is the only one from a brand new band in the Top 10 and has been for 5 weeks. The video for the single, directed by Bradley Scott, can be seen on the band’s Myspace at www.myspace.com/ffdp. The video for “The Bleeding” was one of Headbangers Ball’s Top 20 videos of 2007, as voted on by the viewers.

FFDP Frontman Discusses Ghost Machine Project

Five Finger Death Punch frontman, Ivan Moody, recently spoke with Blistering.com, where he discussed his side-project Ghost Machine in-depth. Ghost Machine is the side-project of Moody, along with ex-Clay People guitarist, John Stevens, and former Motograter drummer, Chris "Crispy" Binns.

"The Ghost Machine album was actually written when I was going through spiritual depression, as that was written right after Motograter and just prior to Five Finger Death Punch," says Moody. "That album was more of an experiment for me and there are certain artistic sides of me, like I love Depeche Mode, Love and Rockets and The Cure. I really wanted to dabble in that side of things where I didn’t have to scream as much and I could be a little more artsy. I love Ghost Machine and we’re looking at putting out another album next year that will be a double disc with all kinds of remixes and a DVD. I love that project and it’s probably one of the closest things to my soul."

Ghost Machine recently released the band’s debut album Hypersensitive on Corporate Punishment Records. The album was engineered and co-produced by Pete Murray (Ultraspank, Lo-Pro) and draws from a wide range of influences that range from like NINE INCH NAILS, THE CURE, PINK FLOYD, ALICE IN CHAINS, TOOL and MINISTRY. Ghost Machine has managed to paint its own portrait of an electronic emotionally rich landscape while still capturing the edge and raw energy that is heavy rock. The group’s debut album can be streamed in its entirety here.

"I love that album," continues Moody about Ghost Machine. "The song 'God Forbid' is about the Motograter fans that were turning on me and "Vegas Moon" was about Steve Richards' passing, because he was living in Vegas at the time and we were staying with him. 'Burning Bridges' was written about Motograter and how it was so hard for people to see the other side of the coin. There was a lot of stuff on that album that people will never see. These are experiences that I had to live through and I'm lucky enough to be able to put them on tape and share them with people. That to me is the biggest gift in the world."
