Five Finger Death Punch Invite ‘Next Generation of Heavy Metal’ Onstage
While the Trespass America Tour featuring Five Finger Death Punch and Killswitch Engage may be in the rearview mirror after wrapping up in late August, videos of the jaunt are still popping up online, including this one below where frontman Ivan Moody brings some young fans up onstage during the song ‘White Knuckles.’
While a Five Finger Death Punch show may not seem like the most kid friendly of affairs, there were plenty of young fans in the audience at their Prudential Center show in Newark, N.J. After calling up a bunch of youngsters on to the stage, which became a regular part of the show throughout the tour, Moody introduced them to the crowd, saying, “Give it up for the next generation of heavy metal right here!”
He then breaks the song for a little game of “Ivan Says” where he instructs the kids to throw their up their devil horns. He then instructs them to throw up double birds and when a few of them do, he jokingly tells them they’re grounded.
The song then kicks back in and the young headbangers become a part of the show, making for an experience that will probably stick with them for awhile. Watch the full clip below.
Five Finger Death Punch released their latest disc ‘American Capitalist’ in Oct. of 2011.
While the band is on a bit of a break from touring, they will be hitting the high seas in November as part of the 2012 ShipRocked experience.
