Today, multi-platinum hard rock band, Five Finger Death Punch, are excited to announce that they will be getting back on the road this Spring for select North American co-headlining dates with past tour mates Shinedown to surround their performances at some of the biggest U.S. Spring festivals including Carolina Rebellion and Welcome To Rockville. The bands are bringing along a very special support package: modern rock powerhouse Starset who will showcase songs from their latest release, Vessels and newcomers Bad Wolves who are currently dominating the rock and metal charts around the globe with their cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” which was released in memory of Dolores O’Riordan who was supposed to record guest vocals on the song the very day of her tragic passing. Proceeds will go to her 3 children.
Late 2017, 5FDP released their greatest hits album, A Decade Of Destruction, with two new tracks “Trouble” and “Gone Away” (their own rendition of The Offspring’s 1997 hit single).Both tracks garnered much critical acclaim and great success, as latest single “Gone Away” received over 10 million streams since its debut on December 1st and over 10 million video views in less than a month. Check out the official video for “Gone Away” and also, the lyric video. “Gone Away” is already #25 on the Active Rock chart and climbing steadily. In addition, the first single from the collection, “Trouble” racked up over 2 million streams worldwide in just a few weeks making it the band’s biggest streaming debut for a lead track. Both songs have topped the iTunes Rock and Metal charts globally. PRESS HERE to purchase A Decade Of Destruction on Amazon and HERE via iTunes.
