FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s fourth studio effort will be a double album that the band will release in two installments. The first volume, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1”, will now arrive on July 30 (one week later than previously announced), with the second half, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2”, to surface sometime later this fall. The deluxe edition of “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1” will come with a bonus 15-track live CD, “Purgatory [Tales From The Pit]”, alongside the 14 songs featured on the album. The release will be accompanied by a redeemable limited-edition t-shirt with the physical pressing only. On June 18, a collectible limited-edition box set featuring a FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH lunch box, the deluxe version of the album with the bonus live CD, an early free download of an exclusive new track from “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1” and assorted collectible items will be available for pre-sale exclusively through the band’s webstore.
“The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1” features guest appearances by JUDAS PRIEST vocalist Rob Halford, SOULFLY frontman Max Cavalera, HATEBREED singer Jamey Jasta, IN THIS MOMENT frontwoman Maria Brink and rapper Tech N9ne (on a cover version of LL Cool J‘s “Mama Said Knock You Out”).
The imagery for both “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell” albums was created by legendary comic book artist and illustrator Greg Capullo (“Batman”, “Spawn”).
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will co-headline the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer alongside ROB ZOMBIE, with the tour kicking off in San Bernardino, California on June 29.
The new double disc follows up 2011’s “American Capitalist”, the group’s third studio album and its third consecutive release to reach gold status for sales of half a million copies or more.
