Ivan Moody Discusses A twenty one pilots Gig That Didn't Happen

So, this is a bit confusing… Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody has praised a twenty one pilots show he attended within the past "couple of weeks" – despite the fact the duo haven't played a gig yet in 2018.

Discussing the band in an interview with iHeartRadio’s Bodhi (via AltPress), Five Finger Death Punch's leader states that he heard Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun play "three new songs" at said concert (again, we reiterate the fact that twenty one pilots haven't played live in over a year – and the last time they played they didn't have any new music out). Weird.

Happily, though, Ivan still had a great time, and enthused about how he doesn't get recognised at those types of gigs.

“When I go to concerts like that it’s so refreshing for one because I don’t get noticed. That’s not really my crowd, right? I wouldn’t think,” he says. “And going to twenty one pilots I stood out in the crowd. I just bought tickets. I didn’t pull weight, same thing with Imagine Dragons. And watching them perform and seeing how at ease they were with their older material and how they came over whatever hump it is to play their new stuff but they mixed it in just right. And I thought it was front-to-back, one of the best shows I’ve seen.”
