Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory has addressed the criticisms he often finds leveled at the band and their fan base. Speaking in the military themed latest issue of “Revolver“, he offered”

“The new album is all about that ‘get up and fight’ attitude. We always get this criticism that our band is for boneheads that go to the gym, you know what I mean? Whatever, dude. I’d rather take that a thousand times over than crying about something.

It’s like, OK, then I’m the bonehead that goes to the gym – and I will stand up and I will fight and I will survive. It’s always been a survivalist attitude. That’s what connects to people who have the same sort of attitude.

You gotta respect the soldiers who sign up and go over to the Middle East and elsewhere. Of course, they’re going to have a similar attitude because they are those guys. They are those guys who will fight for something that is right.”

Five Finger Death Punch will release their new album “American Capitalist” on October 11th through Prospect Park. No word yet as to whether or not it will be released on an Affliction shirt…
