Germany's Hurricane Rock radio station conducted an interview with Los Angeles metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH on March 2, 2009 in Munich. Watch the nine-minute chat below.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will release its first U.K. single, "The Bleeding", on April 6. Taken from the band's debut outing, "The Way Of The Fist", released in Europe in January, this track — dubbed a "concert anthem" in the U.S. – played a significant part in taking domestic sales of the aforementioned album up to the 300,000 mark and beyond, holding a Top 10 position at rock radio.
For its U.K. release, "The Bleeding" will be available on red vinyl 7", CD single and download; all formats will feature bonus content, including a FAITH NO MORE cover ("From Out Of Nowhere"), an acoustic version of the lead track plus a filmed interview with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory.
As previously reported, "The Bleeding" will be featured in forthcoming movie "Highgate Vampire", directed by Asa Bailey.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in January confirmed the departure of guitarist Darrell Roberts, as first rumored at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) convention in Anaheim, California. Roberts's replacement is Jason Hook, most recently seen playing with ALICE COOPER. Lead guitarist Zoltan Bathory said about the new guitarist, "He's an unbelievable player, and a good friend of all of us, so we hope our fans will welcome him in the DEATH PUNCH crew."
