CHRIS KAEL On People S**t Talking FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Online: ‘I Love It’

Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael has no problem with people commenting online about his band. He actually loves it.


FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH bassist Chris Kael has no problem with people commenting online about his band. As a matter of fact, he goes as far as to say he “loves it”.

Speaking in a new interview with Metalshop TV, the FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH bass player says about those who love to bash his band on social media: “I love it…. I get the shit talking. When I was a kid growing up, we didn’t have social media, and it was us talking to one another. This is just another form of talking to friends, shit talking bands and whatnot that you don’t like. It’s much easier to get on the computer and do it now and for people to hear that kind of stuff. So I get it. I love it.”

Kael continued: “Talk shit all day long. Bring it. Just be original. I don’t wanna hear the fucking dumb shit that I hear over and over again. Be original. Don’t be a hack. Get a chuckle out of me, and I do comment on ’em when it’s a good one. Like, ‘Oh, that one — that one’s good.’ We can make fun of ourselves. I fucking get it.”

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will be releasing their new studio album “Afterlife” on August 19.
