FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH ANNOUNCE WORLDWIDE RELEASE OF DOUBLE ALBUM
May 09, 2013
Five Finger Death Punch has announced the band will release their fourth and fifth studio record in two installments with Vol. 1 hitting stores on July 23 and Vol. 2 scheduled for later this fall. Prospect Park will release the albums in North America, Eleven Seven in all other territories. Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory reveals, "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."

In June, Five Finger Death Punch will return to Europe for a tour of major festivals including Sweden Rock (6/06), Germany`s Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park (6/08 and 6/09) and the U.K.`s Download Festival at Donington Park (6/16) (see full schedule below) concluding the run with a performance at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Ceremony in London.

Upon the band`s return to the U.S., the band will take part in a 26 date tour, and the full itinerary can be viewed here: www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/tour/
