Multi-platinum hard rock powerhouse, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, globally released their highly anticipated ninth studio album, “AFTERLIFE” today. Listen to the album on your streaming platform of choice HERE. The title track, “AfterLife” shot to #1 on the Rock charts earlier this year and the album also features new single, “Times Like These ” which is currently climbing the charts. See full album tracklisting below. Today’s release is also highlighted by the launch of the brand new official music video for “Times Like These” which can be watched HERE. Speaking on the band’s latest release guitarist Zoltan Bathory shares:
‘Afterlife’ is my favorite Five Finger Death Punch record to date and it was also the most fun to make. If the previous album “F8″ was dubbed as the “rebirth” of the band, then this one is our “transcendence” for sure. One of the most difficult achievements for a traditional “drums-guitars-bass-vocals” rock band is to establish a recognizable signature sound. The second most difficult thing is to keep evolving while holding on to that signature sound. I believe for us, AfterLife isn’t just an evolution but possibly even a paradigm shift in our career, because this record is so vastly different from all the previous ones, yet it still unmistakably sounds like us. Very proud of this one and can’t wait to share it, our fans are in for a few surprises.”
“AFTERLIFE” is available on all streaming platforms, in cd- and cassette format and in various limited vinyl editions across the globe, as well as a limited collector’s edition lenticular cover cd exclusive at Walmart. Check out the various vinyl editions HERE. In addition, an exclusive brand new “AFTERLIFE” merchandise collection, as well as limited edition red apple color vinyl is available at the official Five Finger Death Punch webstore.
5FDP have amassed over 8 billion streams to date. “AFTERLIFE” is the highly anticipated follow-up release to their 2020 album, F8 which debuted at #1 on rock charts around the world and Top 10 on the Mainstream charts in the USA, Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and more. To date, the band have achieved 25 TOP 10 HIT SINGLES and recently broke the record for most consecutive Mainstream Rock Airplay #1 hits. Their music videos have garnered over 3 BILLION VIDEO VIEWS and the band has SOLD OVER 1 MILLION TICKETS between 2018 and 2020 alone.
