Five Finger Death Punch were forced to postpone their show in Duluth, Minnesota, last night due to a “medical emergency” affecting guitarist Jason Hook.

The band announced the news on Facebook but gave no further information as to Hook’s condition. Five Finger Death Punch say they’ll update fans on their website (opens in new tab) when more information is available.

Ivan Moody and co. are currently on the road with Three Days Grace (opens in new tab), Bad Wolves and Fire From The Gods, with their next show still scheduled to take place on Saturday evening in Omaha. The final date on the current run is set for Sunday, when they’ll perform at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

Five Finger Death Punch are also gearing up to release their new studio album F8 on February 28.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2018’s And Justice For None, guitarist Zoltan Bathory said: “We had an extremely successful, yet tumultuous couple of years as a band. We didn't just weather the storm but came out on the other side better than ever. 

"It was a focused sober group recording, our most important album to date and without a question it shows. This album represents rebirth, progression, transcendence both personally and musically."

Vocalist Moody added” “This record to me is ‘absolution’ – everything I’ve done in my life has led up to this moment.”

Five Finger Death Punch will head out on a European tour in January and February with Megadeth and Bad Wolves – tickets are on sale now (opens in new tab).
