Five Finger Death Punch: Jason Hook Seems to Slam Ivan Moody, First Footage of Band with Tommy Vext Available
Ivan Moody may be headed back to rehab following a disastrous performance in the Netherlands earlier this week, but that doesn’t mean tensions in the band have eased any. The PRP has some screencaps of comments guitarist Jason Hook made on social media not long before Moody’s announcement yesterday, and they appear to express extreme displeasure with the singer.
The subject of Hook’s first message is ambiguous, but given the timing, it sure does sound like the guitarist is talking about Moody:
Now, it’s possible, I suppose, that Hook was calling whomever runs this Instagram account a piece of shit… although I’m not sure why he’d do such a thing, not least of all because he must have known that people would see this, and he must have known that they’d assume he was referring to Moody. That being said, I’m not sure why Hook would publicly talk smack about Moody just hours before the band released a statement saying that “we are committed to supporting Ivan’s road to recovery.” That being said, I’m not sure why anything happens with this band, including their accruement of fans, so…
Meanwhile, the band made their debut with temporary vocalist Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves) at Austria’s Nova Rock Festival last night. You can check out some footage of that performance below, also courtesy of The PRP:
