Five Finger Death Punch Set August Release For New Album “AfterLife”, Stream Latest Single “IOU”


0

Wildly successful modern metal outfit Five Finger Death Punch have announced an August 19th release date for their new album “Afterlife” through Better Noise Music. Producer Kevin Churko (Disturbed, Papa Roach) was once again enlisted to helm that record. Pre-orders for it are available here.

The band’s guitarist Zoltan Bathory had the following to say about this new 12-song offering:

“‘Afterlife‘ was hands down my favorite record to make. It is our ninth album so at this point, we have legions of loyal fans, and our signature sound is more than established. It became its own island, our ground zero we operate from and we can always come back to. So when we started this record, there was an excitement of impending musical adventures, we knew we could step away as far as we wanted to, there was a freedom of truly ‘anything goes.’

This resulted in an album that is way more diverse than our previous ones, while it feels more unified, because there is a framework of overarching stories in Ivan’s lyrics and interconnecting musical motifs between songs. It was not planned as a concept album, but we were so hyper-focused on painting a complete picture, it somehow feels like one… We are very proud of it and are just as impatient as the fans waiting for the release, can’t wait to share it.”

A brand new single from the effort by the name of “IOU” has been released online with an accompanying lyric video below. That visual component serves as a preview of the band’s upcoming dip into the metaverse.

According to an official press release, “the interactive virtual world will be a gamified fan club experience, developed on the near photorealistic Unreal Engine and providing an extension of the band’s existing Fan Club app in the near future.”
