On August 19, Casey Norman, who hosts the “Power Drive” show on Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada’s radio station Power 97, conducted an interview with guitarist Jason Hook of Las Vegas, Nevada-based metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. You can listen to the chat in the YouTubeclip below.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will release its third album, “American Capitalist”, on October 11. The CD was recorded at The Hideout in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko, who helmed Ozzy Osbourne‘s 2010 effort “Scream”.
In addition to “Under And Over It” — a sarcastic, OTT, genre-celebratin’ video for which was directed by Ethan Emaniquis, whose credits include “Sin City” and “Grindhouse” — the album also contains such classic FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH moments as “The Pride”, “Coming Down” and “Generation Dead”.
“American Capitalist” will be released as a standard CD, and a limited-edition deluxe CD format complete with special packaging plus second disc containing a number of exclusive remixes, including one for “Under And Over It”. Meanwhile, the iTunes version carries the bonus track “The Tragic Truth”.
Following the October release of “American Capitalist”, the band — completed by Ivan Moody (vocals), Jason Hook (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), and new-boy bassist Chris Kael — head out on a major U.S. tour under the “Share The Welt” banner, headlining a package that also includes ALL THAT REMAINS, HATEBREED and REV THEORY. This tour starts in mid-October and runs through into November, with more dates likely to be added.
