Op 28 februari verschijnt F8, inderdaad het achtste album van deze 'record selling' Rock/Metal machine. Eerste single Inside Out begint als een klassiek stuk om naadloos over te gaan in een melodieus hedendaags Metal nummer. Het lijkt er op alsof ze hun succesreeks probleemloos zullen verlengen. Live te zien op 26 januari in AFAS Live (Amsterdam)

4x Platinum, 6x Gold record selling rock juggernaut FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have announced their long awaited eighth studio album, titled “F8” today. The album will be released globally on February 28th, 2020.
DEATH PUNCH have amassed over 3 billion streams to date, over 2 billion video views and are the 3rd biggest artist in the hard rock space measured by total consumption (sales and streams). They are surpassed only by Metallica and AC/DC. Newly signed to Better Noise Music, they’ve garnered 22 top 10, hit singles over the last few years.
Debut single from “F8”, “Inside Out” is one of the most personal songs that the band has released to date. Says FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory: "We had an extremely successful, yet tumultuous couple of years as a band. We didn't just weather the storm but came out on the other side better than ever. It was a focused sober group recording, our most important album to date and without a question it shows. This album represents rebirth, progression, transcendence both personally and musically".Vocalist Ivan Moody adds: “This record to me is ‘absolution’ - everything I’ve done in my life has led up to this moment".
“F8” was produced by FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH with long time producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Slash, etc).
The new album “F8” follows FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’S hugely successful 2018 release, "And Justice For None", which debuted in the Top 5 around the world and at #4 on the Top 200 Album Chart. It became the #1 streaming Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album of that year. They’ve built a rabid, global fanbase by creating a unique sound that blurs the line between rock and metal, which has never been more apparent than on their upcoming eighth studio album “F8” and their upward trajectory doesn’t seem to waver.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, have become one of the most recognizable names in music, frequently play the biggest festivals and sell out arenas around the world. After releasing their debut album, "The Way of the Fist", in 2007, the rising metal stalwarts released five consecutive albums that were certified Gold or higher by the RIAA. The band has earned numerous awards and honors and is one of the few recipients of the prestigious Soldier Appreciation Award from the Association Of The United States Army. In 2019, the band collaborated with Brantley Gilbert, Brian May and Kenny Wayne Shepherd to release their version of the latter’s hit “Blue On Black” now one of the Top 10-Selling Rock Songs of 2019, with proceeds from the track being donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation. Their eighth full length album, "F8" will be released via Better Noise Music on February 28th, 2020 and will undoubtedly raise the bar again.
