The upcoming tour is key for both bands, as Five Finger Death Punch just recently released its latest album And Justice For None while Breaking Benjamin’s latest album, Ember was released just this past April. And Justice For None, 5FDP’s seventh full-length studio recording, debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and has sold more than 100,000 copies while also generating 100 million U.S. on-demand streams and more than 250,000 digital song sales. It is also the fifth consecutive top 5 album release for 5FDP.
Adding to its marks, it has four other #1 placements on other charts, including: Top Digital Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums of 2018. Its lead single, ‘Sham Pain,’ currently sits at #7 at Active Rock.
Breaking Benjamin’s latest album Ember debuted at #3 on Billboard’s top 200 Chart. In the months since its release, it has gone on to sell more than 200,000 copies, has charted in Top 10 lists worldwide, topped #1 charts across various genres, including: Top Alternative Albums, top Rock Albums, Top hard Rock Albums, and Top Digital Albums, and is the band’s fourth top 5 debut on Billboard’s top 200 Chart, following 2015’s Dark Before Dawn, which debuted at #1, 2009’s Dear Agony (#4) and 2006’s Phobia (#2).
‘Red Cold River,’ one of the album’s songs, has gone to #1 at Active Rock Radio, making it the band’s eighth #1 single. ‘Torn in Two,’ the album’s latest single, has more than 10 million streams and currently sits at #12
Bad Wolves’ new album Disobey was released this past may via Eleven Seven Music. It debuted at #22 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart and reached the #4 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock and Rock charts. It hit #8 on the Top Current Albums Chart. The band’s cover of the Cranberries’ hit song ‘Zombies‘ — and tribute to the late Cranberries singer Delores O’Riordan — has been certified Gold in the U.S. and has received more than 125 million views across various platforms. The song also has topped a number of charts, including iTunes’ overall and Rock charts, Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart and Active Radio Charts.
Nothing More will be touring on the back of its most recent album, 2017’s The Stories We Tell Ourselves, which debuted in the top 20 of Billboard’s top 200 Chart, and earned the band three Grammy Award nominations — Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for the album’s #1 hit single ‘Go to War.’ The album’s latest single, ‘Just Say When‘ debuted this past April.
