Description

From the cofounder of Five Finger Death Punch, a fascinating inside account of one of the most successful heavy-metal bands of the past decade, and a revealing personal journey through the wild highs and terrifying lows of the rock and roll lifestyle--a wry and rollicking tale of music, addiction, and recovery.

Hailed by the New York Times as one of the most unexpectedly consistently popular bands on the rock charts, Five Finger Death Punch has become the new heavyweight champ of the metal scene. In this high-energy memoir, Jeremy Spencer, the band's cofounder and drummer, takes us onstage and behind the scenes, on tour and into the studio to tell the band's story and his own.

Death Punch'd is a detailed in-depth account of the group's origins and influences, as well as the infighting and tensions that, when channeled properly, result in the music fans love. It is also the hard-charging, laugh-out-loud tale of how a mischievous boy rose from small-town Indiana to rock royalty--and how he nearly destroyed it all for a good time.

Told in his unique, self-deprecating voice, filled with his twisted and humorous take on living the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll dream turned nightmare, and including dozens of photos, Death Punch'd is a lively, no-holds-barred ride and an inspiring cautionary tale that offers lessons for us all.

Back cover copy

A fascinating inside account of one of the most successful heavy metal bands of the past decade and a revealing personal journey through the wild highs and terrifying lows of rock 'n' roll from the cofounder of Five Finger Death Punch, Jeremy Spencer. With ferce honesty and self-deprecating playfulness, Jeremy takes us behind the scenes, on tour, and into the studio to tell the band's raucous story, providing snapshots of a life fueled by sex, booze, drugs, and a thrashing metal sound. He also reveals the fghting and tensions among highly opinionated musicians that grew increasingly out of control--battles that created both intense drama and the music fans love.

In addition to pulling back the curtain on the band, Death Punch'd tells Jeremy's personal hard-charging, laugh-out-loud tale of how he left small-town Indiana and rose to rock royalty--and how he nearly destroyed it all for a good time. Told in his unique, darkly humorous voice, Death Punch'd is a lively, no-holds-barred ride as well as a sincere and inspiring cautionary tale to help anyone who is struggling to battle demons and addictions of their own.
