Five Finger Death Punch Unveil ‘Battle Born’ Video
Five Finger Death Punch recently unleashed ‘Battle Born’ as the first single from their forthcoming album ‘The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Vol. 2,’ due Nov. 19, and now they’ve unveiled the official video for the track via ‘USA Today‘ (watch above).
The video intersperses shots of the band playing live and traveling on the road with clips of fans, including members of law enforcement and the military. “Everybody in the band’s a fighter,” guitarist Zoltan Bathory tells USA Today. “That’s the mental image of the band, and that sneaks into the lyrics, obviously. What kind of people will connect to that? Obviously, people in the military, law enforcement, martial arts, people who have a similar take on life.”
And while the video shows the band’s triumphs, Bathory says it’s not all sunshine and lollipops. “Successful bands will tell you bright side,” he says. “From a rock band, everybody expects the girls, the cars, the yachts, the airplanes, the high life. They don’t see that some days you wake up with the flu. When you wake up with a 102-degree fever and you can barely walk, you cannot stop the show. You crawl out onstage and, no matter what it takes, you have to fight through it.”
Five Finger Death Punch are in the midst of U.S. tour with Escape the Fate. Check out the dates here. You can also catch 5FDP headlining the ShipRocked cruise in January 2014. See all the details here.
