FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Guitarist Doesn’t Get Bummed Out About YouTube’s Impact On Record Sales

Tigman of the Q103 radio station conducted an interview with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Jason Hook and drummer Jeremy Spencer at the inaugural Rock’N Derby festival, which is being held May 20-22 at the Schaghticoke Fairgrounds in Schaghticoke, New York. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked if he thinks YouTube has played a role in the decline in music sales over the past decade, Hook said: “I think that YouTube represents a place where people can go, ‘Oh, remember that song’ — whatever it is — and then they just type it into… Where do they go… What is the fastest delivery source? So, yes, in that respect, YouTube has created an immediate delivery for people to hear stuff.”

He continued: “Instead of getting all bummed out about it, I think we’re just taking it for what it is. And if that’s the state of the industry right now, so be it. We’re still gonna plow forward and do what we do.”

It was revealed last month that FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s label, Prospect Park, filed a lawsuit against the band, accusing it of allegedly trying to violate its recording contract by rushing to make a new album despite the addiction problems of singer Ivan Moody.

The group fired back, calling the suit “the latest in a long line of exploitative and abusive bullying tactics used by our former manager and current label CEO Jeff Kwatinetz to extract money from and wield power against the band.”

Amidst all this, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH announced a new co-headlining arena tour with SHINEDOWN that will kick off on October 18 in Little Rock, Arkansas and run into December. SIXX A.M. and AS LIONS will be along as support.
