"As with professional athletes, when the body and mental state don’t achieve the standard required to meet the rigorous demands necessary to perform at a high level, the choice is clear."

Five Finger Death Punch drummer and founding member Jeremy Spencer has announced his departure from the band.

In a statement posted to Instagram, Jeremy shared that he's decided to step down due to physical limitations which have lead to surgeries. Likening his stepping down to when professional athletes exit formal competition, he shared "when the body and mental state don’t achieve the standard required to meet the rigorous demands necessary to perform at a high level, the choice is clear."

Read his full statement below:
"It’s with mixed emotion that I share with you the following news: I regret that I’ve decided to step down as the drummer of Five Finger Death Punch. This decision has been weighing on me for months; now the time has finally come. I’ve been playing drums since I was six years old. After years of the physicality leading to surgeries, I feel it’s best to step down. As with professional athletes, when the body and mental state don’t achieve the standard required to meet the rigorous demands necessary to perform at a high level, the choice is clear."
