Five Finger Death Punch Debuts ‘Sham Pain’ Video

Courtesy: Prospect Park

The wait is finally over for Five Finger Death Punch’s ‘Sham Pain’ video!

Only days from the scheduled release of the band’s new album And Justice For None, the band has debuted the video for the single, whose audio portion was just recently debuted.  The video is streaming now via Vevo.

The band’s video treatment for ‘Sham Pain’ is a light-hearted approach to everything everything that the band has gone through in the past year or so.  As guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained in a recent interview, “‘Sham Pain’ is a lyrical snapshot of probably the most chaotic, yet the biggest year of our career,” Bathory said.  “So far, we’ve come out of every bear attack relatively un-scraped, and the band is tighter than ever.  Life is not so difficult if you don’t take yourself so seriously.  As long as you can find the humor in everything, you are winning, and the winning is strong with this video as it follows the footsteps of our NOscar-winning masterpiece ‘Jekyll and Hyde.’  it was a simple process: We lit the set on fire and then made our poor director Rob Anderson’s artistic sense into a pinata.  Whatever he could salvage became the music video.”

While probably not fully intended to come across as such, the video also comes across as a farce of so many Limp Bizkit videos, which is sure to entertain audiences even more.

‘Sham Pain’ peaked at #2 on iTunes Metal Chart following its debut April 20.  It debuted inside the Top 10 on the U.S. Rock Songs Chart, and has received more than 2 million streams over the course of its first two weeks charting.  At last report, it was at #35 on the Active Rock Airplay Chart, only a week from the official release of And Justice For None.

‘Gone Away,’ the band’s cover of the hit Offspring song, which was included in the band’s hits collection A Decade of Destruction, remains at #5 on Active Rock radio.  it has received over 30 million streams and has sold over 100,000 downloads since its premiere.

In anticipation of next week’s release of And Justice For None, Five Finger Death Punch has launched a tour in support of the album.  The tour launched May 10 in Tulsa, Olkahoma and currently runs through September 9 in Cleveland, Ohio,  Nothing More and Bad Wolves are sharing time as support for the tour, which is co-produced by Live Nation and Frank Productions.

The band’s current tour schedule is noted below.  Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased here.

Five Finger Death Punch Unveils ‘When Seasons Change’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: Prospect Park

Five Finger Death Punch has released more new music from its forthcoming album And Justice For None.

The band unveiled the lyric video for its latest single ‘When The Seasons Change‘ on Thursday.  The song is a dramatic departure from the band’s most recent single, the full-throttle ‘Sham Pain.’  Whereas that song could be likened to compositions from Shinedown and other similar acts, this latest single is just as easily comparable to works from Breaking Benjamin and other similar acts.

Fittingly, Five Finger Death Punch is scheduled to tour alongside Breaking Benjamin starting tomorrow, May 5 at North Carolina’s annual Carolina Rebellion Festival in Charlotte.  The bands’ tour currently runs through September 9 in Cleveland, Ohio.  Bad Wolves will join the bands for a handful of dates this summer, too.

Five Finger Death Punch Debuts Second Single From ‘And Justice For None’

Courtesy: MSO PR

Five Finger Death Punch is giving audiences a preview of its latest album.

The band debuted this week its new single ‘Sham Pain.’  The song is the second from the band’s new album And Justice For None, its seventh full-length studio recording. The album’s lead single ‘Fake‘ debuted last week and has since generated just under 1 million streams.

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained the song is — lyrically speaking — a snapshot of everything that the band has been through in the past year.

“‘Sham Pain’ is a lyrical snapshot of probably the biggest, yet most chaotic year, of this band’s career,” Bathory said.  “Everyone has a different way of dealing with the moments when life hands them lemons…some complain and some make lemonade.  Us, we pour gasoline on it and then hit it with a rocket launcher.  Sarcasm has always been our ‘Art of War’ (if from naming the band ‘Five Finger Death Punch’ you haven’t figured it out yet), but just wait until you see the video we made for this song.”

That video in question will debut soon.  The band has provided a picture from the video’s shoot.  It is noted below.

‘Gone Away’ (which is a cover of Offspring’s 1997 hit single and is included in its 2017 hits collection A Decade of Destruction), another of the band’s current singles, has received over 27 million streams domestically and is charting at #2 on iTunes Active Rock chart.  It has also topped iTunes’ rock and metal charts worldwide.  The song’s official and lyric video are streaming online now.

Five Finger Death Punch launches its new live schedule in support of And Justice For None today in Tempe, Arizona.  The schedule runs through September 9 in Cleveland, Ohio.  Its dates are listed below.  Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased here.

Daybreak Embrace Streaming ‘The Moment’ Video Now

Daybreak Embrace is on the verge of being embraced by the masses thanks to its new video.

The Florida-based rock outfit released the video for its latest single ‘The Moment’ earlier this month.  According to the description on the band’s CD Baby website, the song is meant to be “a tribute to the fans and family gained on a cross-continent journey full of love, life and loud music.

The video sets the song against footage of the band performing at Woodstock Poland 2016.  For those unfamiliar with the currently unsigned act, the song conjures thoughts of Shinedown, Pop Evil, Five Finger Death Punch and others of that ilk.  The video is streaming online now here.

Five Finger Death Punch Signs New Deal With Rise Records

Rise Records added a major name to its roster this week.

Officials with Rise Records announced this week that the label has added Five Finger Death Punch to its roster.  The  new deal will see the band release its albums domestically through Rise Records once it completes its obligations with its current label, Prospect Park.

Five Finger Death Punch originally formed in 2005 and have since released six hugely successful albums, five of which have gone on to be certified gold, another certified platinum, and another on the way.  The band’s current lineup is made up of Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jason Hook (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), and Chris Kael (bass).  Bathory discussed the band’s addition to Rise Records’ roster in a recent interview.  He didn’t hold back about the band’s motivation for its decision to move forward either.  “We are looking forward to the next phase of our recording career,” he said.  “We have had great success with our current label, Prospect Park, and will continue to enjoy further success with our next and final album (subject to surmounting the label’s court action to prevent us from recording it), after which we will commence a new and exciting label partnership with the people at Rise and BMG.”

The band will join an already stacked roster when it begins its stint with Rise Records.  The label’s roster currently includes: Of Mice and Men, PVRIS, Crown The Empire, Memphis May Fire, Tiger Army, Hot Water Music, and many others.

Rock On The Range Sells Out For Fourth Straight Year

The annual Rock on the Range festival has done it again.

For the fourth consecutive year the Rock on the Range festival has officially sold out. This year’s mark is especially important for the festival as it marks the festival’s 10th anniversary. Last year 120,000 people from all across America and the world bought every last ticket to the three-day festival. This year’s festival will be another three-day event, running from May 20th – 22nd. It will take place at the MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. The lineup for this year’s festival includes: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Disturbed, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch, Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Megadeth, At The Drive-In, Lamb Of God, Sixx:A.M., Hellyeah, and Pennywise, as well as a number of up-and-coming acts.

Along with some of the rock and metal community’s biggest names and biggest names of their next generation, the Rock on the Range Festival will also feature some of the most well-known and respected comedians out there today. They include: Big Jay Oakerson, Nate Bargatze, Craig Gass, Bethany Dwyer, Madison Malloy and Grammy®–nominated comedian Jay Mohr in the Rock on the Range Rolling Rock Comedy Tent. There will even be a craft beer village featuring the top breweries from the region, new art installations, and activities special to the festival among so much more. ROTR co-executive producer Danny Wimmer discussed the sellout and what it says not only of the festival but of rock and metal as well in a recent interview. “Anyone who says, ‘Rock is Dead,’ hasn’t paid attention to Rock On The Range,” he said. “This festival has grown in each one of its 10 years, selling out in record time this year. Rock On The Range’s strength stands as a testament that rock fans are not only alive and well, they are flourishing.”

Whether or not audiences will be headed to the annual festival they can still get all of the latest information on the festival including performance times and more via its new mobile app. The app is free and can be downloaded via iTunes and Google Play.

Rock on the Range is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, AEG Live, and MAPFRE Stadium. It is sponsored by Monster Energy, Jack Daniel’s, Zippo, The Music Experience, and Bud Light. More information on the Rock on the Range festival is available online along with all of its latest news at:
