Five Finger Death Punch recruited Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford as a special guests on their brand new single "Lift Me Up," which was released digitally today.
The teamed up with Halford to premiere the track at the Golden Gods Awards Show earlier this month. The song comes from the band's forthcoming double album.
The first half of that double album, The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1, is set to be released on July 23rd with the second part to follow this fall.
Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody had this to say about the new song, "First and foremost, just to work alongside an icon like Rob Halford, THE Metal God, was absolutely surreal.
"The song itself was originally written about overcoming everyday obstacles and less than perfect situations. Most of us weren't born with a silver spoon in our mouth but if life dealt you all the wrong cards, you still have to play. The song's intent is to inspire; if you play that hand right you might just come out on top anyway."
As we previously reported, Five Finger Death Punch will 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.
