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.

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.
