FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s third album, “American Capitalist”, will be released on October 11 and will follow up the band’s gold-selling second effort, 2009’s “War Is The Answer”. 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 first single “Under And Over It”, 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 release of “American Capitalist”, the band — completed by Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar) 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.
