FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH & PAPA ROACH have launched a social media campaign allowing fans to request which cities their 2015 co-headline European tour should visit. The bands recently ran a similar campaign for their US tour with many of the 1.5 million fans demanding that they visit Europe.
No official announcement has been made about a European leg, but the bands are offering fans the opportunity to request shows by casting a vote for their city at http://demand.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/ and http://demand.paparoach.com/ starting today. Fans can track the progress of the conversation through an interactive heatmap on each site. Each week the top voted cities will move onto the next round until the final routing is revealed the morning of June 12th, the same day FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH perform on the main stage at Download Festival in the U.K.
With 10 #1 singles and over 25 Top 10 singles between them, millions of video streams and fans all over the globe, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH have been dominating the airwaves throughout their careers. The two bands – who have also been heralded by fans and press alike as being at the top of their game in the live arena – are scheduled to co-headline North America arenas this fall.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has just finished their much-anticipated forthcoming sixth full-length studio album, Got Your Six, to be released globally on August 28, 2015. Their last UK tour in 2014 sold out well in advance, and their previous albums THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2 both debuted on the US Billboard album chart at No 2 within a four-month period in 2013, as well as in the Top 10 mainstream charts all around the world. Volume 1 has since gone gold in the U.S. and Canada, and between them, the two albums feature three #1 radio hit singles – “Lift Me Up” featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest, “Battle Born” and “Wrong Side Of Heaven”, the video to which has over 26 million views to date.
Multi-platinum, Grammy and MTV award nominees PAPA ROACH’s brand of melodic hard rock has influenced many of today’s big names in the metal scene. The band released their 8th studio album F.E.A.R. earlier this year which charted at 13 in the UK charts followed by storming appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals and a sold out headline UK tour. PAPA ROACH are set to release their second single “Gravity,” featuring In This Moment’s Maria Brink on June 1, 2015. Watch the video here:
2015 also marks the 15th Anniversary of Infest the band’s 2000 breakthrough album, which has sold over 8 million albums globally to date.
