FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH drummer Jeremy Spencer was asked in a recent interview with JoeDaly.net what direction he thinks the band's sound will take on their next studio effort. Spencer replied, "I'm not sure. We always try to do things a little differently than the time before, but without being drastically different. We are who we are and I don't see us doing something so left turn that people are going, What is that? I just don't see that. We sound like what we sound like and I'm excited to see where it goes, honestly."

Spencer added that the band has already begun writing songs for the follow-up to "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell", saying, "I'm digging it, man. It's actually more brutal, with more extreme dynamics. There are some really mellow parts and then some really brutal parts. So we're running the whole gamut of sounds."

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory told The Pulse Of Radio that FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is not afraid to take risks with its music sometimes. "We are here to step forward and take as much development in anything we do as it is possible, and that's the mentality and that's gonna be in every aspect," he said. "We're gonna kind of push the envelope, maybe go overboard here and there, but, you know, that's the idea."

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH released "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell" in two parts, with the first arriving in July 2013 and the second following in November 2013. The first half alone has sold more than 460,000 copies in the U.S.
