In a recent interview on That Jamieson Show, Disturbed’s David Draiman talks about his admiration for Five Finger Death Punch.
The comments made about Five Finger Death Punch came when Draiman discussed the bands hiatus between 2011-2015 in which he commented;
“Astonishingly, sometimes the best-laid plans of mice and men actually work out. Look, we owe everything to the fans, honestly. And absence does make the heart grow fonder.”
“But you know what? It doesn’t always work out that way. I mean, it happened to work out for us, it happened to work out for Rage [Against the Machine]; happened to work out for System [of a Down]…”
“A lot of bands that took long hiatuses and came back bigger. It does work out on occasion but then again, you also have bands like, let’s say Five Finger Death Punch, for example, who pound the pavement and put out record after record.”
“They have built this massive empire they’ve created, and it’s well-deserved, so there are two different approaches to it.”
“To be honest, I don’t know that I have the strength in me to do what they do, as often as they do, as consistent as they do. God bless them! I actually look up to them for that.”
“But, yeah, it really depends. I don’t think that there’s one specific formula to the path for any one specific band. It all depends, it differs from person to person.”
