Death Punch’d out soon
It’s all about helping people … that’s why Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer is coming out with an autobiography. Spencer decided to write the book whenever he left a rehab facility a while back. Surely the book is full of all kinds of exploits of drugs and sex and rock star life. Even Spencer’s father was apprehensive of reading the book, but he took the plunge and benefited from being able to see his the world through his son’s eyes. The drummer says the book will be worth it if it can help even one person. Portions of the profits will go the NAADAC, an association for addicted professionals. Spencer’s book, titled Death Punch’d: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem is due out September 2nd.
They just released their new album One More ‘Round the Sun and now Mastodon is set to reissue their debut attempt. The reissue of Remission will feature the 2002 album remixed and remastered, plus the album cover will be custom 3D foil stamping thing … or whatever. There will also be a booklet of even more unreleased artwork, and a sticker … bu there’s only 2000 copies of the limited special edition. There’s a black/gold vinyl box set also available for the wax heads. Expect that out sometime in August.
Speaking of releases, a new Weezer album is on its way and the band is releasing cryptic videos as teasers. Titled Everything Will be Alright in the End, the band hasn’t posted a release date, but at least two different black and white videos online features a few clips of new music and very little else. We’ll keep you posted when we get the deets.
