French webmagazine Hard Force's "Metal XS" recently conducted an interview with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Jason Hook. You can now watch the chat below.
The second installment of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's masterwork titled "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell" will be released on November 19.
"The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2" will be made available via Prospect Park in North America and Eleven Seven in all other territories.
Even though the band recorded two albums worth of material this time around, singer Ivan Moody told The Pulse Of Radio he's not a fan of working in the studio. "No, I don't spend a lot of time in the studio, man," he said. "I truly don't. I'll be in there when I have to. I hate the containment, I can't stand the schedule crap. The monotony drives me frickin' crazy, you know, 'Do it again, do it again, let's try that again,' and it's just, it's so frustrating to me. Sitting in the booth and feeling like, basically it's just a cold, dead coffin, and a lot of the time people want to know why my lyrics are so angry — that has a lot to do with it."
The first half of "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell" came out on July 30 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, selling 113,000 copies in its first week of release.
The first single from "Volume 1", "Lift Me Up", featured JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford and hit the top of the rock radio chart.
"Volume 1" has sold more than 276,000 copies to date. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's three previous albums have all gone gold for sales of 500,000 copies or more.
