Rock 101 question and answer: Wed Oct 5 [Five Finger Death Punch]
New FFDP has been leaked (see below). I’ll be giving away the new FFDP next week with Rock 101 as well…
Five Finger Death Punch has released two brand new songs ahead of the arrival of the band's third studio album, American Capitalist. The two tracks, called "Generation Dead" and "Back For More," both appear on the upcoming disc, which is due out next Tuesday (October 11th). Immediately following the album's arrival, the band will hit the road for the 48 Hours Festival in Las Vegas on the 15th before kicking off the Share The Welt tour on October 16th in San Francisco.
The tour will be the first for new Five Finger bassist Chris Kael, who replaced Matt Snell earlier this year. Kael has played just a handful of gigs so far with the group but is looking forward to his first full tour: ["It's very liberating to kind of free the ties of quote-unquote real life and go up there and, you know, play the role as the new bass player for Five Finger Death Punch, playing in front of thousands upon thousands of people that are into you and you really feel that vibe. I'm real excited about it, finally glad to be quote-unquote living the dream, and it's a damn good feeling."]
Five Finger Death Punch will tape a special outdoor performance on Wednesday, October 12th for ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live, which will actually air on October 26th.
