At the time, Spencer cited injuries and surgeries brought on by drumming as his reason for stepping down.

Since then, the band has found a new drummer, and Spencer, a new job. He just announced he is now a reserve police officer in Rockport, IN. Spencer was sworn in by the city’s mayor. He currently lives in Las Vegas, but grew up in a neighboring town to Rockport.

“It’s an honor to be able to come back to this area when I can and serve the community as a reserve police officer and help out my brothers,” Spencer said.

Back in March,  FFDP vocalist Ivan Moody celebrated a full year of sobriety.

The musician and his bandmates took to social media to celebrate the huge accomplishment.

“Join me in celebrating @ivanmoody today on his One Year Sober Birthday! Roughly 75 percent of those who start the path to sobriety don’t make it a full year. I’ve seen firsthand the work that Ivan has done through 365 consecutive days to get himself to this HUGE milestone,” FFDP’s Chris Kael said on Instagram.

“I’ve seen the amazing, positive changes in him over this past year that have gotten closer and closer to the man we all knew he could be. I’m proud of you, my friend. As are countless people you have inspired along the way. Keep that shit up!”

Moody posted his own videos about the year on his Instagram, which you can check out below.
