Russell "Evil G." Johnson of BareBonesMusic.com recently conducted an interview with Jeremy Spencer (drums) and Ivan Moody (vocals) of Los Angeles metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. Jeremy and Ivan discuss their year-plus tour for "War Is The Answer", plans to take some time off and go in soon to start writing and recording their third album. The guys also discuss playing the main stage at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, the theme behind "War Is The Answer", their latest video for "Bad Company", and what it was like being in Iraq with our men and women in uniform. They also speak about staying in one of Saddam's palaces and how the experience of eating breakfast cereal and taking a "number two" on one of Saddam's golden toilets can change a person. Finally they discuss the November "Iron Fist" deluxe box set release of their first album, "The Way of the Fist", with all the extras and finally their expectations for their new record and how one errant bee during the interview sums up why war is the answer. You can now watch the chat below.On November 23 all die-hard knuckleheads can rejoice: FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's debut album, "The Way Of The Fist", will be reissued as a deluxe box set. "The Way Of The Fist: Iron Fist Edition" celebrates the landmark album for the metal genre that has sold over 425,000 copies and continues to scan over 1,000 copies a week three years after its original release. The "Iron Fist Edition" box set features the original 13 album tracks with all-new artwork, a brand new in-depth documentary DVD, "The Legend of The Fist Vol. 1", (featuring never-before seen footage and interviews spanning FIVE FINGER's career), a bonus CD with 11 B-sides and rarities, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH trading cards, and an exclusive poster and calendar. In addition to a new tour and new deluxe version of their first album, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has a new single at radio. After the success of "Bad Company" — which peaked at #2 on the Active Rock charts and has been a Top 5 track for over two months — FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has released their newest single from "War Is The Answer": "Far From Home". As a track that has special meaning to the band, "Far From Home" has already gotten an incredibly positive reaction at radio, and will be sure to ride the charts all fall.
