Denny Spinks of the “All Things Metal” radio show recently conducted an interview with guitarist Jason Hook and drummer Jeremy Spencer of Las Vegas-based metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory said in a recent feature on the band at Billboard.com that the success of the metal act’s third album, “American Capitalist”, is a “testament to our fans,” adding, “We are in a fortunate position that the DEATH PUNCH fans take pride in buying the album and supporting us — we owe everything to them.”
“American Capitalist” debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling 91,000 copies in its first week of release. Both the chart and sales numbers were career highs for the group.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s previous two albums, 2007’s “The Way Of The Fist” and 2009’s “War Is The Answer”, are both certified gold for sales of more than 500,000 copies each.
The group’s label, Prospect Park — which also doubles as its management — plans an extensive 18-month campaign behind the new disc. Up to four singles could be released, with the first, “Under And Over It”, already a rock radio hit.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH kicked off the Share The Welt tour last month, which has the band headlining over ALL THAT REMAINS, HATEBREED and REV THEORY.
