Well then...

Five Finger Death Punch have released a statement which suggests vocalist Ivan Moody is not leaving the band.

Moody appeared to shout: "This is my last show with Five Finger Death Punch," at a show in Tilburg, Netherlands last night, but now the band say:

"There has always been an element of danger and unpredictability in our music and in our shows. That's rock 'n' roll."

And added: "the train always keeps on moving."

FFDP have confirmed they'll be playing tomorrow (June 14)'s scheduled set at Nova Rock Festival in Austria, and that they plan to fulfil all of their scheduled dates as normal.

You can read their full statement below.

"Those who have followed 5FDP from the beginning can tell you there has always been an element of danger and unpredictability in our music and in our shows. That’s rock ‘n’ roll. When you do over 150 shows in a year, you will inevitably have a few derailments, but the train always keeps on moving. Last night in Tilburg was one of those instances, but as they say, you aren’t a race car driver if you don’t wreck a car or two.

"We can’t wait to put on amazing shows tomorrow night at Nova Rock all the way to our just announced winter tour all over Europe.  See you all on the race track....bring a helmet....

"Five Finger Death Punch"

This is the second time this year that the band's camp have released statements saying the frontman is staying in the band after Moody appeared to suggest otherwise. The first was back in April.

The band have a number of festival appearances scheduled for June, and announced a UK/EU tour with In Flames and Of Mice & Men today (June 13).
