Acclaimed hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch's highly anticipated The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1 (Prospect Park in North America / Eleven Seven in all other territories) has debuted as a global success. The album has achieved career highs for the band, with a mainstream chart debut at #2 in The United States, #3 in Canada, #4 in Germany, alongside impressive entries in other territories across the globe. The lead single "Lift Me Up" (featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest) is currently #1 on the U.S. Active Rock charts for the third consecutive week. The successful debut exhibits that Five Finger Death Punch is challenging the notion that "Rock is Dead," as they look poised to deliver a fourth consecutive Gold certified album following the successes of The Way of The Fist (2007), War Is The Answer (2009) and American Capitalist (2011). Cumulative single sales have now exceeded over 4.5 million.
Alongside Rob Halford of Judas Priest, special guests on the new album include: Tech N9ne on an unexpected cover of LL Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out," In This Moment's Maria Brink on "Anywhere But Here," Jamey Jasta from Hatebreed on "Dot Your Eyes" and Max Cavalera of Soulfly on "I.M. Sin." The album has been released in multiple configurations including a deluxe edition featuring a bonus 15 track live CD, PURGATORY [Tales From The Pit], and is accompanied by a redeemable limited edition t-shirt with the physical pressing only. Via the band's web store, a collectible limited edition box set featuring a 5FDP lunch box, the deluxe version of the album with the bonus live CD, and assorted collectible items is available here:
The band just wrapped a successful tour co-headlining the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival alongside Rob Zombie. THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN North American Fall headline tour will kick off September 15th at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento. The itinerary features an expansive Canadian run alongside the U.S dates. Escape The Fate and Miss May I support, with Gemini Syndrome opening the show. Following the Fall tour, Five Finger Death Punch will join Avenged Sevenfold as special guest on their European arena tour before closing our the year with a string of Russian headline dates in December.
