Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer will sit out the fall leg of the band’s tour with Breaking Benjamin to undergo a second back surgery for an undisclosed condition. A drum prodigy known as “The Engine” will fill in for him on all dates, with the tour beginning on Tuesday (November 6th) in Wichita, Kansas and ending on December 11th in Portland, Maine.
Following the two bands’s successful summer run together, the fall arena tour will once again feature 2018 breakout rock band Bad Wolves and Swedish veterans In Flames on select dates. From Ashes To new will offer support on the entire trek.
Five Finger Death Punch will donate a portion of its ticket sales to VETPAW (Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife). The mission of VETPAW is to end the illegal poaching of rhinos, elephants and other endangered species, using the skills and experience of highly trained combat veterans to form anti-poaching units, train local park rangers and support their communities.
Breaking Benjamin will donate a portion of ticket sales to a charity the band has long supported, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, in an effort to help further research to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Five Finger Death Punch is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, And Justice For None, which came out in May.
