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.

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.

5FDP Premieres ‘My Nemesis’ Video

Five Finger Death Punch has released its latest video.  And it is one of that audiences will not forget.

Five Finger Death Punch has teamed up with Vevo to debut the video for its latest single ‘My Nemesis.’  The song is taken from the band’s latest album Got Your Six.

The video follows two teenagers in two very different situations who are ultimately brought together after leaving their homes.  The pair eventually ends up separating at the video’s end.  But their journeys are the most gripping part of the video’s story.  Their stories are meant to illustrate the difficult situations that so many people face every day.  Directed by Nick Peterson the video depicts imagery that some audiences might find unsettling.  While that is the intent in the video viewer discretion is still advised.  It is not the first time that Peterson has teamed up with 5FDP.  Peterson also directed the band’s videos for ‘Wrong Side of Heaven’ and ‘Coming Down.’  Audiences can view the video for ‘My Nemesis’ online now via Vevo at http://www.vevo.com/watch/US5Z51500662?syndicationid=bb8a16ab-1279-4f17-969b-1dba5eb60eda&shortlink=j171aL&country=US.

In conjunction with the video’s premiere, 5FDP is encouraging fans to share their own “Nemesis” on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by completing the phrase #MyNemesis is _________ and I will #OVERCOME.  Fans can share their nemesis by searching the hashtags #MyNemesis and #OVERCOME.  The band is encouraging fans to share their own stories with one another and with the band as a means to build strength and a sense of community among its fans.  Fans can go online now to see all of the current fan responses and are encouraged to share their own stories.

Five Finger Death Punch will hit the road this spring in support of Got Your Six beginning April 15th in Perth, Australia.  The band will also join Shinedown for a handful of co-headlining dates on its upcoming tour.  There will also be dates with Black Sabbath, early in the band’s schedule.  Ticketing an VIP info for the tour is available online now via the band’s official website at http://www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com.  The band’s full upcoming tour schedule is noted below.
