Dopo la pubblicazione del primo singolo omonimo, i Five Finger Death Punch sono orgogliosi di annunciare il nuovo disco AFTERLIFE, in uscita il 19 agosto via Better Noise Music. Sempre oggi la band ha svelato un nuovo brano intitolato IOU.
“It was hands down my favorite record to make” spiega il chitarrista Zoltan Bathory. “It is our ninth album, so at this point, we have legions of loyal fans, and our signature sound is more than established. It became its own island, our ground zero we operate from and will always have to come home to. So when we started this record, there was an excitement of impending musical adventures, we knew we could sail away as far as we wanted to, there was a freedom of truly “anything goes.” This resulted in an album that is way more diverse than our previous ones, while it feels more unified, because there is a framework of overarching stories in Ivan’s lyrics and interconnecting musical motifs between songs. It was not planned to be a concept album, but we were so hyper-focused on painting a complete picture, it somehow feels like one… We are very proud of it and just as impatient as the fans waiting for the release, can’t wait to share it”.
Con oltre 8 miliardi di streams, “AFTERLIFE” è il successore di “F8”, pubblicato nel 2020 e subito ai vertici delle rock charts di tutto il mondo.
La band ha anche annunciato un tour europeo nel 2022, che avrà inizio questa estate.
