Five Finger Death Punch Receive Army Award, Announce Tour Dates
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory says: "The Soldiers Appreciation Award is something very special. The only musician ever to receive this was Elvis Presley. Clearly what we have to say resonates with a lot of veterans and a lot of service members.
"To know that we are reaching people and touching their lives with our music is very rewarding, and to me this really is the sole purpose of being a musician - to be able to make a positive impact in somebody's life."
In 2010, 5FDP played shows for soldiers in Iraq, and have paid tribute to the military on albums War Is The Answer and Got Your Six. They also started their fundraising campaign 5fdp4vets.com to support former troops. Read more and see the tour dates here.
