FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Celebrates New Album In Las Vegas

The Pulse of Radio reports: FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will play a record-release party on Friday night (September 18) at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, as the band prepares for next Tuesday's (September 22) arrival of its sophomore album, "War Is The Answer". The group has also revealed that the deluxe edition of the new disc will include a bonus DVD, a locker-sized poster, a decal, special digipak artwork, two bonus tracks, and a fan club membership.

Meanwhile the video for the album's first single, "Hard To See", has surfaced online (see below). Founding guitarist Zoltan Bathory and new axeman Jason Hook told The Pulse of Radio that they picked the video concept just to make life hard for singer Ivan Moody. "When we shot the video for this particular song, you know, we were getting the treatments from all kind of directors, right?" Bathory said. "So we were reading all the treatments and one of the treatments started with, like, 'The lead singer gets hit with a shovel and falls in a grave,' and we were pretty much..." Hook, added, "Sold, sold, we'll go with this one." Bathory continued, "'This is the one!' (laughs) To tell you the truth, I don't really know what that video is about, I still don't really understand, but he did get hit with a shovel, so..." Hook said, "So we're like, 'Good.'"

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's 2007 debut, "The Way Of The Fist", has sold over 350,000 copies.

The band will begin "The Shock And Roar Tour" next Tuesday in San Francisco, finishing up sometime in early November. Joining them on the bill will be SHADOWS FALL, OTEP and 2 CENTS.
