Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody has announced that he plans to retire after the band’s next album. During a concert in Denver, CO this past weekend, Moody said, “The last 15 years of my life I have toured the world. And through that time as many of you parents know—hard workers—I have missed a lot of time with my kiddos. So I made them a deal today, and I’m going to stick to it. After this year, I am going to make one more Five Finger Death Punch album and then I am retiring from heavy metal.
