Ivan Moody says that he is “having the best time” of his life, a year after his onstage meltdown which resulted in him leaving the band to receive treatment for alcohol addiction.

Five Finger Death Punch released a new album and the band is currently co-headlining a tour with Breaking Benjamin. Moody admitted that he went to rehab five times before the last time finally stuck. He said: “I just don’t want my legacy to be dying from substance abuse.”

Moody revealed that he nearly died due to an alcohol-related seizure and woke up surrounded by EMTs and his daughter holding him while crying. Moody claimed that he never relapsed after that, but continued to enter treatment centers after that to avoid relapsing.
