According to the official 5FDP website, All That Remains singer Phil Labonte will step in and feature additional help from James Michael of Sixx:A.M. and As Lions singer Austin Dickinson, son of singer Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden.

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory says, "Ivan is our brother and we fully and wholeheartedly support him taking care of himself so he can get well as soon as possible. We discussed possibly canceling the remaining shows but the responses from the other bands on the tour were so overwhelmingly supportive that we decided to move forward and deliver the great night to the fans that they expect.”

Adds Labonte, “I got their six and stepped up right away. I’m honored to be able to help Five Finger Death Punch to finish their tour and give Ivan a chance to take care of himself."

5FDP cut their set short in Massachusetts November 25 after Moody fell ill. The following night in New Jersey, Moody addressed the crowd, saying he'd had “a mental moment.”

Here are the remaining dates on the tour:

12/2 -- Hershey, PA Giant Center

12/6 -- Charleston, SC N. Charleston Civic Center
