Five Finger Death Punch have been making waves with their newest album, American Capitalist (featuring the hit “Under And Over It” named the #1 Song of the Year by AOL Radio). I caught up with drummer Jeremy Spencer on their recent “Share The Welt” headline tour, supported by other big names like All That Remains, Hatebreed and Rev Theory. Jeremy gives us the deets on what their relatively recent success has been like, what their band name and latest album is all about, and even which football…

The force that is Five Finger Death Punch is back to rock your world. Over the last few years, Death Punch has become one of North America’s most prominent hard rock acts thanks to their killer first two records and frenetic live shows. After only a very short break after finishing touring behind War Is the Answer, Death Punch didn’t waste any time writing and recording their third record American Capitalist. Recently we spoke to the band’s drummer Jeremy Spencer for a few words on the new record. In the interview, Jeremy discusses the background and writing process behind American Capitalist, how the band met new bassist Chris Kael and why the band keeps coming back to its producer of choice Kevin Churko. On a more personal note, Jeremy lets us in on his greatest influences and what exactly he does backstage to prepare for shows.

How many bands tour the world via their own customized plane these days? Less than you can count on two hands? Well, legendary English metallers Iron Maiden did just that in 2008. Flight 666 is the film which documents the band’s “Somewhere Back In Time Tour” which totaled 50,000 miles and five continents in 45 days doing 23 shows. The means of transport for this trek was Bruce Dickinson’s very own customized Boeing 757, Ed Force One. This plane carried the band, crew and 12 tons of stage equipment while being piloted by none other than its owner and the band’s vocalist, Bruce Dickinson.
