Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody sparked quite a bit of confusion after his interview with iHeartRadio’s Bodhi last week in which he went into quite a bit of detail about the Twenty One Pilots concert he recently attended, going as far as to say that it was one of the best concerts he had ever attended. Moody describes what sounds like a great show and a fun night, except for one minor detail… TOP have yet to play a show in 2018.


The FFDP singer sat down with iHeartRadio’s Bodhi before their Breaking Benjamin show to discuss everything from hip hop to people comparing him to Corey Taylor. But it was his very detailed story about his recent Twenty One Pilots concert experience that got a lot of people talking.

If you recall, TOP were on hiatus until the recent announcement of their forthcoming album Trench, and have yet to perform a show in 2018. So what show did Moody see?

One could suggest that maybe his sense of time is just way off—if Moody didn’t go on to mention how they played three new songs at the show he attended “a couple weeks ago.”

“When I go to concerts like that it’s so refreshing for one because I don’t get noticed. That’s not really my crowd, right? I wouldn’t think,” Moody tells Bodhi. “And going to Twenty One Pilots I stood out in the crowd. I just bought tickets. I didn’t pull weight, same thing with Imagine Dragons. And watching them perform and seeing how at ease they were with their older material and how they came over whatever hump it is to play their new stuff but they mixed it in just right. And I thought it was front to back, one of the best shows I’ve seen.”

You can listen to the full interview below, with the TOP talk beginning around the 3:19 mark.

At least it sounds like he had fun, right?


After causing some confusion with a recent interview, Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody clarified via an Instagram video post that he was mistaken when he said he saw Twenty One Pilots recently. He says he instead meant to say Imagine Dragons.

Written by Whitney Shoemaker

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
