FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH To Release New Single; New Mic Stand Unveiled
Los Angeles metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will release a new single, "No One Gets Left Behind", in the U.K. on March 8 via Spinefarm Records.
The artwork for both formats features photos sent to the group by fans currently serving in the U.S. military — specifically from Heavy Marine Helicopter Squadron 462.
Since the release of the debut FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH album, "The Way Of The Fist", back in 2007, the band has gained increasing support from U.S. troops on active service, as a result of which their "Death Squad" motif now regularly features on combat vehicles and choppers along with the "No One Gets Left Behind" call to arms.
Taken from the band's latest/second album, "War Is The Answer", and with studio track "Undone" included as a bonus, the single will be available on seven-inch colored vinyl (a limited, hand-numbered pressing) and as a download with a digital booklet.
This latest single, the third from "War Is The Answer", coincides with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's headline appearance at the Metal Hammer-backed Hammerfest event, due to take place in Prestatyn from March 12 to March 14. The Prestatyn show will also witness the U.K. unveiling of a brand new mic stand designed for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH frontman Ivan Moody by Alchemy Studios in the U.K.
Produced in solid stainless steel and weighing in at a massive 12-13 stone (!), the mic took over 120 hours to complete, and is a combination of the "classic Alchemy Gothic style" along with themes relating to the band's "War Is The Answer" release.
"This was the most inspiring challenge we'd encountered in a long time," says Alchemy founder Geoff (Deth) Kayson. "[We put in] weeks of creative and developmental work, followed by industrial-scale, white-hot, heavy-duty foundry stuff, but the [final result] has been worth every minute of it!
