    In 2012, Ivan Moody revealed that his alcohol problem had nearly got him fired from the band.
    More Details Hide Details Other members of Five Finger Death Punch wouldn't answer his phone calls and they had lost many tour managers, all harming the band and themselves. Ivan had even performed while drunk; he claimed he would perform in front of large crowds and not remember any of it the next day. He started to cut down on the alcohol and drink with more responsibility, before stopping completely. Ivan says that he "felt like a junkie and from that extreme, it takes a lot of effort to go back." Motograter was voted the best band of 2003 by Hit Parader. Five Finger Death Punch has won several awards including The Best New Band award at the 2009 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, the Most Promising Artist award from FMQB’s 2009 year-end Metal poll. They were also nominated for the Best International Newcomer award at 2009 Kerrang! Awards and won the Best Breakthrough Band award at the 2010 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. Best Song for "Lift Me Up" at the 2014 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards.

    More Details Hide Details Although born in Denver, Colorado, Moody shared to a crowd in La Crosse, Wisconsin, that he used to spend several summers with his grandmother in Somerset, Wisconsin. "My grandmother put me in choir when I was about seven years old. I was only in it about two or three years. Music's always been real close to my heart. Like anybody else, there were ups and downs in my life and music just always seemed to be consistent, so it was easy to latch on to." Moody started singing in bands when he was 16 years old, kicking him out of bars after his set was done. Ivan currently resides in Elizabeth, Colorado, near his hometown of Denver.
