Five Finger Death Punch has broken the curve for a band's acceleration, going from niche act to headlining phenomenon in fairly short order. Now standing aside Rob Zombie at Mayhem Fest and on the verge of a double release, I sat down with drummer Jeremy Spencer to talk about the band, how they got here, what it feels like, and what to expect from this album.
M.DREW: I don’t know if you would remember this, but we met briefly a couple years back in the Albany airport at some God-awful hour in the morning. At the time, you were opening for Godsmack and Ivan [Moody] and I talked about how you guys could barely get a twenty minute set. Now, here you are on the marquee of Mayhem Fest. What does that feel like as an accomplishment?
