FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Talks To ARTISAN NEWS About New Album, Bassist Change (Video)

Artisan News recently spoke to drummer Jeremy Spencer and guitarist Zoltan Bathory of Las Vegas, Nevada-based metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH about the arrival of the band's third studio album, "American Capitalist", and their split with original bassist Matt Snell. You can check out the chat below.

"American Capitalist" is due out next Tuesday (October 11). Immediately following the album's arrival, the band will hit the road for the 48 Hours Festival in Las Vegas on October 15 before kicking off the Share The Welt tour on October 16 in San Francisco.

The tour will be the first for new FIVE FINGER bassist Chris Kael, who replaced Snell earlier this year. Kael has played just a handful of gigs so far with the group but is looking forward to his first full tour: "It's very liberating to kind of free the ties of quote-unquote real life and go up there and, you know, play the role as the new bass player for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, playing in front of thousands upon thousands of people that are into you and you really feel that vibe," he said. "I'm real excited about it, finally glad to be quote-unquote living the dream, and it's a damn good feeling."


FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will perform on the Wednesday, October 26 episode of ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (which will actually air the morning of Thursday, October 27). Fans are encouraged to attend the outdoor taping, which will take place on October 12 at the El Capitan Theater, located one block south of Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Orange streets, in Hollywood, California. The band is scheduled to perform two songs.

"American Capitalist" follows up 2009's "War Is The Answer".
