Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer is halfway through writing his second book – which he says explores his life since he got clean.

Spencer’s 2014 autobiography Death Punch’d: Surviving Five Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem features wild stories from his drug and drink-fuelled past.

And while the follow-up is very much post-rehab, Spencer says fans should still expect some “crazy” stories.

He tells Big Smash Radio: “I’m halfway done with the first draft, so it’s in the infant stages. And it’s just about from the day I got out of rehab up until now.

“It’s just as crazy as the other book. Death Punch’d was a lot of using and partying, but this is sober. But it’s still crazy. I mean, there’s been a lot of life that’s happened.”

5FDP are being sued by their record label Prospect Park, who accuse them of breaching contract over a best-of compilation and the recording schedule for their next title.

The band have a number of tour dates remaining in 2016.
