The Skinny: Five Finger Death Punch are getting ready to release their brand new album, American Capitalist, on October 11th via Prospect Park Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. American Capitalist was recorded at The Hideout in Las Vegas with Canadian producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain) and is the anticipated follow-up to 2009’s War Is the Answer, which sold over 30,000 units in Canada.
“This record crystallizes the sound of Death Punch,” says guitarist Zoltan Bathory. Singer Ivan Moody adds, “I literally gave every ounce of blood I had on this one. We are a people’s band. Our fans understand us because of who we are. We’ve never tried to be anybody else but Five Finger Death Punch. If you’re inclined to please the whole world, you’ve got to take a step back and realize that at the end of the day, you have to be you- first and foremost. Otherwise, you’re useless to anyone else.”
Five Finger Death Punch is widely renowned as one of the most important bands of recent metal history and today play sold out shows, headline prestigious festivals and command an army of die-hard fans across the globe.
