With Special Guests: All That Remains, Hatebreed and Rev Theory
From the forthcoming third album, American Capitalist, Five Finger Death Punch debuted its first single, Under and Over it, on Wednesday July 27th. 5FDP have embarked on quite the journey to reach this point. The Los Angeles quintet’s assault on heavy music began in 2007 with the release of their hit debut The Way of the Fist. After forming a “dream team” of metal musicians, the band self-funded the album- producing it entirely themselves. Death Punch eventually signed with The Firm/ Prospect Park. After months of relentless touring—including a show-stealing set at 2008’s Mayhem Festival—Five Finger Death Punch became the hottest new band in metal.
Five Finger Death Punch has fine-tuned their songs more than ever, and their sound has progressed immensely on their latest offering. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory puts it best: “We’ve matured but we’re still the same band. Maybe we’ve gotten closer to traditional metal.”
The band’s live show is more incendiary than ever. At the start, Five Finger Death Punch destroyed stages alongside Korn and Atreyu on The Family Values Tour 2007 and with Slipknot and Disturbed on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2008. Since then, they’ve had numerous successful headline jaunts in the U.S. and in Europe, with many more to come.
About their international appeal, Zoltan offers some insight. “If you really dig down to the roots of the music, American bands are groove-oriented and based on rhythm and blues. European bands grow up on classical music because it’s very much embedded into that culture. Five Finger Death Punch has both of those roots because I’m from Europe, and Ivan and the rest of the guys are American. We’re a truly international metal band, and that fact separates us.”
We will go out there, sweat, bleed and experiment—that’s everything I’ve looked for my entire life in a band. Mankind is nothing but a cluster of opinions and nobody knows the real answers. However you can move, even change people through music. That’s power and real art”
