Five Finger Death Punch Hit Final Stretch in Recording of New Album, Tease Upcoming Tour
There is no "stop" in Five Finger Death Punch, as the band is quickly following up their pair of 2013 releases, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Parts 1 and 2, with a brand new album.
The group has quietly been working on new material since the latter portion of 2014 and according to a new Instagram post from guitarist Zoltan Bathory, the band has entered the final stretch on recording the disc. He writes, "Working on the new album... All music is done - and While Ivan is recording the remaining vocals I'm putting together posters for a big tour coming up , Merch, album covers... Good times! #finalStretch #deathpunch6 #fivefingerdeathpunch."
In addition, Bathory hints at a big tour, and if you look closely at the Instagram video below, you can probably take a very educated guess as to which band FFDP will be touring with:
Back in February, guitarist Jason Hook revealed that the band had chosen an album title for their upcoming release, but he was not at liberty to divulge that information as of yet. He had also stated that there were songs that had working titles like "Pulled Pork," but obviously those monikers would change by the time the album was completed.
Five Finger Death Punch will return to the road April 18 in Tucson, Arizona, at the Kinos Veteran Memorial Stadium. At present, they have North American shows lined up into mid-May before they cross the pond to take part in Europe's festival season. But as Bathory stated, another major tour announcement is expected soon. FFDP's current dates can be found here.
