Five Finger Death Punch’s Jeremy Spencer Set To Release New Book ‘Death Punch’d’

In case you haven’t heard, Five Finger Death Punch’s Drummer Jeremy Spencer has teamed up with HarperCollins to release his autobiography ‘Death Punch’d: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem’. The book will be hitting stores on Tuesday, September 2nd. And I know what you’re thinking, ‘Man, this is just another cash grab from an artist trying to make an extra few bucks.’ But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. This book has a great message and proceeds go to a great cause.

This is your basic rock and roll tale of debauchery and excess ala Nikki Sixx’s ‘Heroin Diary”: The book chronicles Spencer’s journey of how a mischievous boy rose from small-town Indiana to one of the decade’s top-selling bands globally — and how he nearly destroyed it all for a good time.

As William Blake once said, ‘The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom…You never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough.’

Spencer, in his uniquely dark and humorous voice, tells the tale of how he had the world by the balls and almost pissed it all away. Most people that go over the edge, never come back. Luckily for us, Jeremy lived to tell the tale.

Spencer says of his journey ‘I’m not proud of many of the episodes in the book, but the person I was, under the influence, is not who I choose to be. A heartbeat away from death, I chose life. So, more than anything, I think ‘Death Punch’d’ is a reflection of how far one can fall and still find a way back, a way to accomplish goals and dreams and more important…a way to live. I’d be the last person to say it’s easy. But, I’d be the first person to say there’s always hope.’

Aside from telling his tale in an effort to possibly help people through their own addictions and demons, Spencer is donating a part of the proceeds to NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, which represents the professional interests of more than 75,000 addiction counselors, educators and other addiction-focused health care professionals in the United States, Canada and abroad.
