Five Finger Death Punch Eye Summer 2013 Release for Next Album
Five Finger Death Punch have been working on new music and fans will be happy to know that there's now a target date for the band's next album. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory reveals via a series of Instagram posts that 5FDP are currently recording songs in the studio and aiming for a summer 2013 release.
Bathory's photos, which can be seen here, here, and here, show him having fun jamming with the band in the studio, one with the comment, "Recording the new album. Out this summer." Another pic teases in its caption, "At the recording studio tracking guitars for new #fivefingerdeathpunch album ... Out 2013 summer - the title is ... ."
Bathory's photo postings go along with drummer Jeremy Spencer's recent comments that the band had been "cocooned up" working on a new album.
In addition, guitarist Jason Hook revealed last summer that the band had taken a recording rig with them on their tour. At the time, Hook stated, "The idea behind that is just to keep the creative muscle worked out. It’s just like going to the gym; if you stop for a year, you lose all your strength. It’s easy to get lazy and get sort of soft. We’re in the business of making music; touring is great, but we should always be prepared and always exercising that creative muscle — in my opinion, anyway.”
He also added that they had "six to eight songs" worked up at that point for when they headed into the studio. Hook said the preparation would make things easier once they hit the studio and gave them plenty of options to work with when it came time to record.
5FDP's new disc will be the follow-up to 2011's 'American Capitalist,' which has yielded such singles as 'Under and Over It,' 'Remember Everything' and current hit 'The Pride.'
