Five Finger Death Punch
These are exciting times for Five Finger Death Punch, who have a pair of albums to promote this year. Though the band recently revealed their double album plans, they did not unveil the title of the discs … until now. Fans can look for 'The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell' coming later this year. 'Volume 1' of the package is still on track for a July 23 release while 'Volume 2' will follow at a still-to-be-determined date this fall.
Five Finger Death Punch have been teasing a special guest for their new album and during their performance at the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods ceremony they finally unveiled that none other than the "Metal God" himself, Rob Halford, was appearing on their new single, 'Lift Me Up.' The cane-wielding vocalist took the stage to perform alongside Ivan Moody, delivering the hard-hitting single with aplomb. The performance can be seen above.
Five Finger Death Punch are of the mindset that two is better than one, which is why fans will be treated to a pair of new albums this year. Though the group has yet to reveal the title of their forthcoming albums, they have revealed that there will be two volumes worth of music that will be split between summer and fall street dates.
Five Finger Death Punch are co-headliners with Rob Zombie on the 2013 edition of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival and even though their album is still in progress, there's a piece of new music that's now available for listening in the trailer featuring the band promoting their Mayhem Festival run.
The 2013 Mayhem Festival may not arrive until late June, but four of the bands on the bill gave a great taste of what's to come at the Mayhem Festival press conference Monday (March 18) in Los Angeles. Headliners Rob Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch fielded questions, while up-and-coming acts Huntress and Butcher Babies took over the Whisky-a-Go-Go for an in-your-face performance.
