Five Finger Death Punch Serve Up Electrifying Live Performance for ‘Wash It All Away’ Video
Five Finger Death Punch are back with a new live concert performance video for their current single "Wash It All Away," but this isn't just any concert performance video. The band called upon director Wayne Isham to oversee the clip and Isham knows a thing or two about bringing the stage performance to life in a unique visual way.
He's helmed videos for Metallica, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and others over the years that have showcased the band's live shows and made the acts video superstars. "There is a reason why Wayne Isham is a legendary video director," says guitarist Zoltan Bathory. "I think he was the perfect choice to capture the band's live show and the energy that connects us to our fans. That energy is the reason why this band is still getting bigger and bigger. Something is simply infectious about what leads up to and what happens at our shows and we wanted to create a time capsule of that for ourselves and the fans."
Isham adds, "When I was asked to direct the new Five Finger Death Punch video, I was into it right away. Being a fan of the band made it easy. Being a veteran myself -- seeing what the band has done for veterans over the years made this a no-brainer for me."
As seen in the clip above, not only does Isham take the viewer right up onstage with the band during their appearance at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Ct., he also takes them behind the scenes in the quiet moments before the band takes the stage.
Five Finger Death Punch are in the process of completing one of the biggest years of their career. Having toured the U.S. with Papa Roach, In This Moment and From Ashes to New earlier this fall, the band is finishing out 2015 overseas. They're currently co-headlining a European trek with Papa Roach, with Devil You Know opening all dates. The trek will conclude on Nov. 28 at London's Wembley Arena. Dates can be found here.
