FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Reveals “AfterLife” Album Details, Drops Lyric Video for ‘IOU’ Single

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has set an August 19 release date for its new album, “AfterLife”. The official lyric video for the LP’s second single, “IOU”, can be seen below. The band’s longtime collaborator Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, PAPA ROACH, SKILLET) helmed the producer duties of the ninth and arguably most diverse record of the band. “IOU” is now available to stream and download across platforms.

The clip provides a first ever sneak peek into the Metaverse project the band has been working on. The interactive virtual world will be a gamified fan club experience, developed on the near photorealistic Unreal Engine and providing an extension of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s existing fan club app in the near future.

‘AfterLife’ was hands down my favorite record to make,” says FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist 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 we can always come back to. So when we started this record, there was an excitement of impending musical adventures. We knew we could step 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 [Moody, vocals] lyrics and interconnecting musical motifs between songs. It was not planned as 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 are just as impatient as the fans waiting for the release. Can’t wait to share it.”

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s follow-up to 2020’s “F8” was once again recorded at the Hideout Recording Studio, the Las Vegas, Nevada facility owned and operated by Kevin Churko, the Canadian record producer/engineer and songwriter who has worked on all of FIVE FINGER‘s albums beginning with the band’s sophomore release, 2009’s “War Is The Answer”.

“AfterLife” will be FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s first album with its latest addition, renowned British virtuoso Andy James, who replaced Jason Hook in 2020. James was previously featured on “Broken World”, a song that was included on the second installment of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s greatest-hits collection, “A Decade Of Destruction – Volume 2”, which came out in the fall of 2020.

Exclusively curated by the band, various limited edition “AfterLife” vinyl and merchandise offerings and collectibles are also available for pre-order today in the official band and label stores.

Since FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s debut album, “The Way Of The Fist”, came out in 2007, the band has released six consecutive albums that were certified gold or platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as well as two chart-topping greatest-hits albums. In addition, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has earned numerous national and international awards and honors over the last decade, such as the prestigious Soldier Appreciation Award by the Association Of The United States Army, an honor bestowed upon only one other recording artist before them: Elvis Presley.

“F8” debuted at No. 1 on rock charts around the world, with Top 10 mainstream chart debuts in the USA, Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K. and more. It produced four No. 1 hit singles with “Inside Out”, “A Little Bit Off”, “Living The Dream” and “Darkness Settles In”, the latter of which saw the band tie DISTURBED‘s record for most consecutive No. 1s on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart with seven chart-toppers in a row. The band has amassed over eight billion streams and three billion video views to date and has sold over one million tickets between 2018 and 2020 alone.

Last month, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH announced a 2022 U.S. headlining tour presented by Live Nation.
