FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH caps off one of the biggest years of their career with a live performance music video for their new single “Wash It All Away,” shot by acclaimed music video director Wayne Isham (Metallica, Motley Crue). The clip was filmed at the band’s recent headlining show at Mohegan Sun Arena (Uncasville, CT) and showcases their highly visual stage show, and the contagious energy that fuels the thousands of rabid fans in attendance.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH embark on a co-headlining European tour with Papa Roach starting tonight. The tour will wrap up the band`s 2015 touring cycle with a massive show headlining the UK’s legendary Wembley Arena on November 28th. One of the UK’s most heralded publications, Metal Hammer, states “FFDP have created something feral and provocative, conjuring a new dimension of heaviness without sacrificing the muscular hooks and galloping tempos that underpin their sonic identity.”
Former Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones’ new band, Devil You Know, will join Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach on all dates. Head over now to fivefingerdeathpunch.com to view their complete itinerary.
Zoltan Bathory (guitars) states: “There is a reason why Wayne Isham is a legendary video director; 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 for the fans.”
Wayne Isham further 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.”
The highly-acclaimed 6th album from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH (FFDP), entitled GOT YOUR SIX, hit new heights for the band around the world with its sales debut. Chart-topping debuts in US – #1 on Top Album chart, #1 on Overall Digital Album chart and #1 on the Hard Music Album chart combine with #2 on the Billboard Top 200 for the band’s impressive showing of nearly 115k records sold this week. This was the first #1 Album for the Las Vegas hard-rockers. Impressive international chart numbers rolled in from Australia & Canada (#3), Germany & Sweden (#5), UK (#6) to name a few.
The album is the follow-up to the global smash hits THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL Volumes 1 and 2 (both debuted at #2) and its release coincided with the U.S. fall arena tour with PAPA ROACH, IN THIS MOMENT, and newcomers FROM ASHES TO NEW. A demand campaign assisted in mapping out this tour yielded over 2 million responses from US fans, thus helping to create their biggest tour to date.
The Vegas based rockers have grown exponentially in a short amount of time, racking up 15 consecutive Top 10 Hits, 3 #1 Hits and 5 Gold albums. With the release of their 2-volumes in 2013, the band had continuous new content with which they outsold the majority of bands in their genre, selling 1.5 million albums over the past 2 years in North America alone.
