Five Finger Death Punch Releasing Double Album This Year

Good news from Five Finger Death Punch! Fans not only will be served one new album, but two. The assurance given in the press release recently. The first will be released July 23, and the second in fall, while the first single ‘Lift Me Up’ will premiere in the U.S. on radio on May 13 and will be available for purchase online May 14.

“We came off the road after a couple of great years of touring and were really amped up to write the 4th record. Everybody was in the right headspace and the band tighter than ever so it was a perfect storm. We jumped in head first and found ourselves 12-13 songs deep fairly quick but were still coming up with better and better material so we looked at each other and said…. ok why stop there ?… let’s keep going. Once we passed the 24th song we knew we’re going to have to do a double album. We had this massive amount of music that’s very dear to us, possibly the best material this band has ever created. At that point there was no way to decide which songs to leave off the album. So we made the decision to release them all.” – 5fdp guitarist Zoltan Bathory (Read more)
