Since November, frontman Ivan Moody has been struggling with some personal demons. Ever since his mental breakdown, he has left the tour and stated he had “fallen ill” and plans to check into rehab. He had said this in an interview with Denver’s 106.7 KBPI:
“To be completely honest with you, Death Punch and I have kind of come to a crossroads. We’re very proud of what we’ve done – years and years and years of work…,” he said.”
“It’s time for us to take our way and go do something else, so after this year… my new band, Villain… I’m so excited.”
Moody adds that he will complete the remainder of the band’s tour and then exit. The band has not commented on the anything involving his plans.
