Five Finger Death Punch Drops New Single IOU, Confirms Album Details


Five Finger Death Punch have released a second track from their upcoming ninth studio album, Life after death. New song acknowledgment of debt follows in the hard-hitting footsteps of the title track, released last month. Life after death will be released on August 19 and is available for pre-order now.

“It’s our ninth album, so at this point we have legions of loyal fans, and our signature sound is more than established,” says guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “It’s become its own island, our ground zero from which we operate and can always come back to. So when we started this record there was an excitement of musical adventures coming, we knew we could stray as far as we wanted, there was a freedom of truly “anything goes”.

“It resulted in a much more diverse album than our previous ones, while still feeling more unified, as there is a framework of overarching stories in Ivan’s lyrics and interconnected musical patterns between the songs. There was no not planned as a concept album, but we were so focused on painting a full picture, it feels like one… We’re very proud of it and just as excited as the fans waiting release, we can’t wait to share it.”

The official lyric video of acknowledgment of debt gives fans a first look at the Metaverse project the band has been working on, an interactive virtual world that will work as an extension of the band’s existing Fan Club app.

Fiver Finger Death Punch embarks on a European tour of festivals and arena shows next month, and kicks off an extensive US arena tour with Megadeth, The Hu and Fire From The Gods in August. Tickets are on sale now, full dates below.
