Five Finger Death Punch Sign New Label Deal With Rise Records
Last month, the news broke that Five Finger Death Punch were being sued by their record label Prospect Park over their alleged reluctance to record a new album and issue a greatest hits set. The band responded to some of the allegations in the suit, as did their producer Kevin Churko.
Following those events, it wasn't a big surprise that Five Finger Death Punch have signed with a different label. BMG's Rise Records has inked the band to a North American recording deal, with the first album to be released following the completion of Five Finger Death Punch's obligation to Prospect Park.
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory says, “We are looking forward to the next phase of our recording career. We have had great success with our current label, Prospect Park, and will continue to enjoy further success with our next and final album (subject to surmounting the label’s court action to prevent us from recording it), after which we will commence a new and exciting label partnership with the people at Rise and BMG.”
Rise Records CEO Craig Ericson adds, "I'm honored to be working with one of the biggest arena rock bands in the world. I'm very confident in the future of Five Finger Death Punch and Rise Records and can’t wait to hear the music they make with our company.”
Five Finger Death Punch have some European and American festival dates this summer in support of their latest album Got Your Six and will co-headline a fall tour with Shinedown. The trek, which also includes Sixx: A.M. and As Lions, kicks off Oct. 18 in Little Rock, Ark. For their complete tour schedule, go here.
