Five Finger Death Punch just released a video for “Coming Down”, which comes off their latest album American Capitalist (review). The video shows two teens, horribly bullied (both in real life and in the cyber world), who fight the urge to take their own lives. You can watch the video below.
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory (interview) explains, “Through support and awareness, suicide can be prevented. Five Finger Death Punch is promoting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to build awareness that there is support out there for those in need through the Lifeline’s service, and others. This is an important initiative we have taken on to place it on the consciousness of the public that you are not alone when in need.”
The band will also be embarking on the Trespass America tour with Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, God Forbid, and Battlecross. One dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to provide for the National Suicide Hotline crisis call centers. Tour dates are below. READ MORE
Hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch will be embarking on a US/Canadian west coast tour beginning in March. The 14-date trek begins in Las Vegas, NV and ends in Casper, WY. The band is touring in support of their latest release, American Capitalist (review). Support on these dates will come from Soulfly, Windowpane, and Persist.
Singer Ivan Moody shared, “The few times we’ve been to Canada it’s been absolutely phenomenal. The fact that we get to take a band like Soulfly with us on a tour like this says it all. This is going to be one hell of a great time, in no uncertain terms.”
Guitarist Zoltán Báthory added, “We only played a handful of dates in Canada, but they were all sold-out so we are really looking forward to a headlining tour up there. What makes it even sweeter is taking one of our favorite bands Soulfly with us on this trek. As we are playing bigger and bigger venues, I think it became our responsibility to help expose some great metal bands to our more diverse audience.”
Five Finger Death Punch has been sweeping the hard rock world since their first release, Way Of The Fist, came out. Now, just over four years since then, the band releases their third studio album, American Capitalist, today. Does it have the same edge and ferocity as the previous two releases or does it fail to live up to expectations? Check after the jump for the answer! READ MORE

Five Finger Death Punch has released the cover artwork for American Capitalist and, just like I thought, their mascot Knucklehead has a prominent place in the picture. The album is slated for release on Oct. 11th and the guys will be hitting the road for the “Share The Welt Tour”, which features Hatebreed, All That Remains, and Rev Theory. You can check out all the information for that tour here.

Five Finger Death Punch are undoubtedly one of the biggest acts in the hard rock/metal scene today and the proof is in their latest single, Under and Over It. The track was number one on iTunes and when news of its release came out, the FFDP server crashed due to the overwhelming number of listeners and supporters. Already, it’s making its way to becoming the most requested rock song on radio stations all over the country.

The new album comes out October 11th, but we’re giving you some first hand exclusive news about it right here! Check after the jump for the exclusive one on one interview.

Revolver Mag scored an exclusive stream of Under And Over It, the new song from Five Finger Death Punch, as well as an interview with vocalist Ivan Moody discussing this song in particular. Having listened to the track a few times, I’ll say that some things work really well for me and some things are just a bit much. I love the sound of the instruments and the overall feel of the song. It’s a pick-you-up-and-slam-you-down type of song. However, some of the lyrics are just so cliche/juvenile. They honestly made me wince a few times.
