A true clash of the titans, America’s preeminent multiplatinum chart-topping hard rock band Five Finger Death Punch unite with renowned chart-topping European legends In Flames to co-headline what promises to be the biggest and most exciting arena rock tour of Autumn/Winter 2017. This marks the very first time that these two juggernauts have joined forces on the road together, and it’s a “can’t miss” moment for the genre and fans at large. The trek takes in arenas across Europe and the UK beginning in November, stopping in most major cities, and concluding on December 21st at Wembley Arena in London.
To coincide with the tour the band are releasing a new single, the defiant “’Ain’t My Last Dance” taken from their album “Got Your Six” which charted at No 6 in the UK. Listen to it HERE.
“We thought this was the perfect song to address the various rumors circulating out there. Ivan is doing great and the band is firing on all cylinders. Not just isn’t this our “last dance” but as we are gearing up for the European tour, we are kicking it up a notch and building our biggest stage show to date” says Zoltan Bathory, founding member and guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch.
Spotify and Live Nation who present the tour, have joined forces with Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames for a one-of-a-kind tour partnership featuring exclusive pre-sales, packages, and content from both bands. For exclusive VIP offerings go [fivefingerdeathpunch.com]HERE.
5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory commented: “We have just played all the European festivals and had an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch. We can’t wait to come back this Fall and especially with In Flames which is one of my favorite bands. This will be something special to see…”
Support on select EU dates and all UK dates of the tour comes from Of Mice & Men. The Orange County, CA-based band recently returned with two brand new songs, “Back To Me” and “Unbreakable,” via Rise Records.
Five Finger Death Punch comprised of vocalist Ivan Moody, guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook, drummer Jeremy Spencer and bassist Chris Kael formed in 2005 and have released six highly successful albums, five of which have been certified gold, with one reaching platinum status and another soon to follow.
Five Finger Death Punch’s crushingly epic sixth full-length studio album Got Your Six, hit new heights for the band around the world with chart-topping debuts in the US (#1 on Top Album chart, #1 on Overall Digital Album chart, #1 on the Hard Music Album chart, #2 on the Billboard Top 200) and internationally (Australia & Canada #3, Germany & Sweden #5, UK #6 Holland #17, Belgium #29 and France #32). The album was the sixth consecutive release to earn the Las Vegas rockers a RIAA Gold certification. Acclaimed by The Guardian and Classic Rock, it yielded four successive Active Rock smashes “Jekyll & Hyde” (50.4 million Spotify streams), #1 hit single “Wash It All Away” (32.9 million Spotify streams), “My Nemesis” #2 (16.29 million Spotify streams) and most recently “I Apologize” #3 (17.5 million Spotify streams). Refining their inimitable fusion of intricate instrumentation and undeniable hooks, Got Your Six represents yet another high watermark for the group who claim 17 consecutive Top 10 Hits, five #1 songs and frequently outsell the majority of bands in their genre.
