FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH AT WORK ON NEW MUSIC
Five Finger Death Punch is back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2013’s double record set, The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell.
A mid-to-late 2015 release is expected for the disc, Despite the band being fairly prolific by today’s standards — putting out new music every two years — singer Ivan Moody said the studio is the last place he enjoys being: “No, I don’t spend a lot of time in the studio, man. I truly don’t. I’ll be in there when I have to. I hate the containment, I can’t stand the schedule crap. The monotony drives me frickin’ crazy, you know, ‘Do it again, do it again, let’s try that again,’ and it’s just, it’s so frustrating to me. Sitting in the booth and feeling like, basically it’s just a cold, dead coffin, and a lot of the time people want to know why my lyrics are so angry — that has a lot to do with it.”
The band, which was last seen on concert stages as part of a fall 2014 double bill with Volbeat, will take a break from the studio this spring for a round of new live dates.
