5FDP warn fans against fake Ivans

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory has warned fans to beware of fake social media accounts purporting to be run by frontman Ivan Moody.

The band are currently working on the follow-up to 2013 twin titles The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell.

They put the project on hold to tour during 2014, but Bathory has posted a picture from their studio and says: “Listening sessions today. The new songs for the next record are shaping up killer.”

He adds: “A quick note – Ivan does not have an Instagram or Twitter account, so all the Ivan Moody accounts you see are someone pretending to be him. All fakes.”

5FDP tour Europe with Judas Priest in June. Their sixth album is expected during the summer.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
