Ivan Moody Drops Off Five Finger Death Punch Tour, Replaced By Phil Labonte

With only seven shows to go on the band’s current U.S. co-headlining arena tour alongside Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch will finish out the current trek with All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte filling in for frontman Ivan Moody, who has fallen ill.

Says Zoltan Bathory, guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch: “Ivan is our brother and we fully and wholeheartedly support him taking care of himself so he can get well as soon as possible. We discussed possibly canceling the remaining shows but the responses from the other bands on the tour were so overwhelmingly supportive that we decided to move forward and deliver the great night to the fans that they expect.”

Phil Labonte comments: “I got their six and stepped up right away. I’m honored to be able to help Five Finger Death Punch to finish their tour and give Ivan a chance to take care of himself. I did the same for Killswitch Engage years ago. I was humbled to get the call and get a chance to play in front of such a great audience.”

Adds James Michael, vocalist for Sixx:A.M.: “All of our hearts are with Ivan right now hoping for a speedy recovery. Phil is an excellent frontman and vocalist who stepped forward in solidarity to Ivan without a moment of hesitation. Fans are in for some special treats and surprises. I’m really excited about the show tonight.”

Hideous Divinity Premieres New Music Video For “Cobra Verde”

Hideous Divinity premieres a new music video for “Cobra Verde”.

States the band:

“The surrealistic, soaring visions populating Herzog’s “Cobra Verde” haunted our songwriting like a nightmare, and inspired the concept of our second album. When it was time to think about a videoclip, we found ourselves in front of a fascinating challenge: how to visually render the atmosphere of an entire epic movie in the space of a song. After watching the work of the young and talented Guilherme Henriques Silva , we knew he was the right person for the job. Filmed between Roma (in the evocative location of Tor Caldara, where the mighty Ben Hur was shot) and Porto, the videoclip captures the magic and the occult of our African curse made flesh.
The title track, with its dramatic mid tempos and pauses, made the rest. Join us, one more time, in the land where there the dead are more alive than the living. Fear no end, fear no spirit!”

Check out now “Cobra Verde” below.
