Nov. 1 Is Officially ‘Five Finger Death Punch Day’ in Las Vegas
The city of Las Vegas has officially named Nov. 1 "Five Finger Death Punch Day," honoring the band's worldwide success on the weekend they've sold out back-to-back shows in their home city.
"Not only are we kicking off our U.S. fall tour today with Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves & Fire From the Gods," wrote the band on Facebook (post below), "the City Of Las Vegas also just officially declared November 1 to be 'Five Finger Death Punch Day'!" The post also included photos of the band receiving the proclamation, which outlined the reasons why the city designated the first day of the month after the hard rock icons.
The full proclamation (via Blabbermouth) reads as follows:
Whereas, it is the privilege of the Board of County Commissioners to honor and recognize multi-platinum-selling artist and award-winning band Five Finger Death Punch, and their commitment to entertainment, the performing arts and the community; and
Whereas, with an unparalleled music career, Five Finger Death Punch has accumulated 21 consecutive US top-10 hits, eight #1 hits, three gold albums, three platinum albums, and a platinum single, making them the most successful band in the rock genre in terms of album sales; and
Whereas, with more than 3 billion streams, 4.5 million albums, and 10 million digital songs sold worldwide, Five Finger Death Punch is the recipient of countless awards, including the Soldier Appreciation Award from the Association of the United States Army – European Region (only other artist awarded was Elvis Presley); and
Whereas, with their song 'Wrong Side Of Heaven', they raised awareness for veterans suffering from PTSD and more than $225,000 for organizations that support veterans.
Now, therefore, we, the Board of Commissioners of Clark County, Nevada, do hereby recognize Five Finger Death Punch and congratulate them on the success of their career and their two sold-out hometown shows at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.
Congrats to Five Finger Death Punch for the honor. Catch them on tour with Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves and Fire From the Gods on a headlining arena tour at the dates listed below.
Between tours, the group has been in the studio, working on the successor to last year's And Justice for None. Five Finger have kept fans updated on their progress the whole way, sharing videos from the sessions and even teased one of the new singles, "Inside Out." Bassist Chris Kael also said that they've finished three new songs as of mid-August.
