Five Finger Death Punch finish new album

 

Five Finger Death Punch have completed work on their new album according to guitarist Jason Hook.

Teasing fans on his Instagram account he posted that he was listening to the mixes in his car after the band wrapped up duties on the new record – due out later this year.

5FDP released a snippet of a brand new song via video containing highlights from the road in November. Now the band have confirmed a first release with Rise Records – following the completion of the group's obligation to its current label, Prospect Park – may not be too far away.

Hook said last summer that Five Finger Death Punch are the kind of band who get frustrated when sitting idle and taking a break doesn't come naturally to them.

“We're workaholics,” he said. “We went right back in the studio. Every time we talk about taking a break, it just doesn't feel right.

“Sitting around it just feels like we could be doing something. We're always concerned that we might lose momentum or that people will stop caring. I think we're overachievers by nature.”

Five Finger Death Punch's latest album, 2015's Got Your Six, was officially certified gold on August 8, 2016 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales in excess of 500,000 copies.
