Five Finger Death Punch are back with their highly anticipated sixth studio album, GOT YOUR SIX.
Got Your Six is the follow up to 2013 albums, “THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1” and “VOLUME 2” which both debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 within a four-month period in 2013, as well as at the top of the mainstream charts all around the world. Volume 1 has since gone gold in the U.S. and Canada, and between them, the two albums feature three #1 radio hit singles – “Lift Me Up” feat. Rob Halford of Judas Priest, “Battle Born” and “Wrong Side Of Heaven”, the video to which has over 30 million views to date, fast approaching the level of success of the band’s three previous consecutive Gold certified albums: “THE WAY OF THE FIST” (2007), “WAR IS THE ANSWER” (2009) and “AMERICAN CAPITALIST” (2011). The band has also exceeded cumulative single sales of 6.5 million to date.
“If someone asked me to sum up who and what Five Finger Death Punch is, I would tell them everything they need to know is on this new record. Hands down, “Got Your Six” is our best one yet… As for the first single, everybody is Jekyll and Hyde. There are multiple personalities to every human being, and no matter how civilized and sophisticated you think you are, if you dare to look at yourself very, very closely, you’ll see… somewhere deep down… there is a demon inside. Your circumstances may not have provoked it yet but trust me, it’s there…” says Ivan Moody vocalist of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH about the lyrical theme of the song.
