Five Finger Death Punch To Debut Song From New Double Album

05/02/2013
.
Five Finger Death Punch have recorded enough new music for two albums and will be releasing the effort in two different volumes and will debut the first single at the Golden Gods Awards tonight in Los Angeles.

The band have set a July 23rd release date for Vol. 1 of the double album and plan to release Vol. 2 of the effort at a date to be determined this fall.

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory explains why they went with a double album, "We came off the road after a couple of great years of touring and were really amped up to write the 4th record.

"Everybody was in the right headspace and the band tighter than ever so it was a perfect storm. We jumped in head first and found ourselves 12-13 songs deep fairly quick but were still coming up with better and better material so we looked at each other and said, 'why stop there? Let's keep going.'

"Once we passed the 24th song we knew we're going to have to do a double album. We had this massive amount of music that's very dear to us, possibly the best material this band has ever created. At that point there was no way to decide which songs to leave off the album. So we made the decision to release them all."

Fans can tune in to tonight's (May 2nd) AXS TV and Xbox Live broadcast of the Golden Gods Awards to watch the band perform the first single "Lift Me Up." The show will also feature performances from Metallica, Stone Sour, Halestorm and more.

The band will be releasing the single on May 14th and it will be released to radio on May 13th.

Five Finger Death Punch will also be hitting the road this summer for this year's Mayhem Festival and they will be coheadlining the tour with Rob Zombie.

The lineup will also feature Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Machine Head, Children Of Bodom, Behemoth, Job For A Cowboy, Emmure, Born Of Osiris, Motionless In White, Butcher Babies, Battlecross, Huntress, Thrown Into Exile and City In The Sea.

The tour will kick off on June 29th in San Bernardino, CA and will conclude in Dallas, TX on August 4th.
