Five Finger Death Punch has just returned from a triumphant tour of European festivals concluding with performances at UK's Download Festival and the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Ceremony in London. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory shares, "We haven't been in Europe lately so it was a pleasant surprise to find out that we have a massive fan base there too... In the end that means Europe can expect to see us coming 'back for more' this winter and in 2014."
On June 29 the band will return to North America co-headlining the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival alongside Rob Zombie over the summer and is scheduled for a Canadian headline tour to take place in the fall. For full tour itinerary go to: www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/tour/.
Five Finger Death Punch has released three consecutive RIAA gold certified albums through Prospect Park for sales exceeding 500,000 copies. The success of The Way of The Fist (2007), War Is The Answer (2009) and American Capitalist (2011), which debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts in October 2011, exhibits the band as one of the few in the rock genre to consistently see significant sales both digitally and physically. The band's ten consecutive Top 10 radio hits - including 2012's #1 hit "Coming Down - have spawned cumulative single sales of over 4.2 million. Going back to 2008's "The Bleeding", Five Finger Death Punch has consistently been one of the most heavily played bands at rock radio.
