Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook has had to head home early from the band’s European tour in order to continue his recovery from his emergency gallbladder removal surgery this past December. Guitarist Andy James (ex-Sacred Mother Tongue/Fields Of The Nephilim) has been recruited as his temporary replacement. The band stated of that yesterday, February 04th:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our brother Jason Hook will not be able to perform tonight. He needs additional time for his recovery and must step back from the current tour in order to have the opportunity to do so. We discussed this as a band and Jason‘s well-being is our priority – health comes first.

It was Jason‘s express wish that we continue the tour so with Jason’s blessing we have invited our friend Andy James who has agreed to step in and finish the tour for Jason.

We are grateful for Andy stepping up and will continue to deliver the great show the fans deserve every night.

We’ve been having an incredible run with our friends in Megadeth and Bad Wolves so far, and the vibe of the tour has been amazing. We look forward to seeing all the German fans next and appreciate all of you joining us in wishing Jason a speedy recovery.
