On September 22, 2009, Santa Rosa, California's 101.7 The Fox radio station conducted an interview with Los Angeles metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. Watch the chat in two parts below.
According to Hits Daily Double, the companion web site of music industry tip sheet HITS, "War Is The Answer" — the sophomore album from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH — is on track to sell between 35,000 and 40,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD follows up FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's 2007 debut, "The Way Of The Fist", which has sold 353,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"War Is The Answer" was released in the U.S. on September 22 via Prospect Park Records. The CD was produced by the band and Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, IN THIS MOMENT), and was mixed by Randy Staub (METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, NICKELBACK). According to a press release, "the record evolves the band's already mature sound, ranging from the undeniable melodies in 'Hard to See' to the brutally nihilistic 'Burn It Down' — destined to please fans both new and old."
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH kicked off "The Shock And Roar Tour" this past Tuesday (September 22) in San Francisco. Joining them on the bill are SHADOWS FALL, OTEP and 2 CENTS.
