FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, have become one of the most recognizable names in music, frequently play the biggest festivals and sell out arenas around the world. After releasing their debut album, The Way of the Fist, in 2007, the rising metal stalwarts released five consecutive albums that were certified Gold or higher by the RIAA. The band has earned numerous awards and honors and is one of the few recipients of the prestigious Soldier Appreciation Award from the Association Of The United States Army. In 2019, the band collaborated with Brantley Gilbert, Brian May and Kenny Wayne Shepherd to release their version of the latter’s hit “Blue On Black,” now one of the Top 10-Selling Rock Songs of 2019, with proceeds from the track being donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation. Their eighth full length album, F8 will undoubtedly raise the bar again.
Says FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory, "We had an extremely successful, yet tumultuous couple of years as a band. We didn't just weather the storm but came out on the other side better than ever. It was a focused sober group recording our most important album to date and without a question it shows. This album represents rebirth, progression, transcendence both personally and musically."
Vocalist Ivan Moody adds, “This record to me is ‘absolution’ - everything I’ve done in my life has led up to this moment."
