FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Frontman Joins Cast Of 'Bled' Horror Movie

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH vocalist Ivan Moody (ex-MOTOGRATER) has joined the cast of a new horror movie "Bled", which is set to begin shooting in May. Ivan will play the creepy "Incubus" that's invoked by a substance known as 'strigios, a rare and ancient sap that bleeds from a long forgotten tree. Sai, the story's main character, descends into a dark mythical world by inhaling a small wisp of smoke from the burning sap, where she will face a beast (Ivan) hidden in the guise of her darkest desire. This creature will use her blood to gain in strength, and use her lust to cross over from its world to ours.

"Bled" is being produced by Jeffrey Allard ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning"), directed by Christopher Hutson ("Butcher House") and written by Sxv'Leithan Essex. A fall release is expected.

Asked how big of a challenge it is to play the monster, one of the lead roles of the movie, Ivan said, "I've been playing one in real life since I remember… "

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH may contribute a song to the soundtrack, but this has not yet been confirmed.

As previously reported, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has pushed back the projected release date of its debut album, "The Way of the Fist" (American Royalty Records), to June 12 from the previously announced April 3.

"The Way of the Fist" was recorded at Next Level Studios with Stevo "Shotgun" Bruno (PRONG, MÖTLEY CRÜE) and at Complex Studios with Mikey Sarkisyan (SPINESHANK). Mixing and mastering duties were handled by Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY).

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH describes its music as "true metal... undiluted, raw as metal was always meant to be. In fact, for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH it was important that everyone involved at any stage of this recording was a diehard metalhead."
