FMQB Productions and Prospect Park have teamed up to produce “Inside Five Finger Death Punch: American Capitalist”, a 47-minute special which is described as an in-depth look at FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s third album, “American Capitalist”. The program, which can be heard using the SoundCloud player below, features new music from “American Capitalist”, along with a discussion between the five members of the band and KBPI‘s Willie B. about the making of the album and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s ascension to stardom.
“American Capitalist” is likely to sell between 85,000 and 90,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on October 11 via Prospect Park Records.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s previous CD, “War Is The Answer”, opened with 44,000 units back in September 2009 to land at position No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD followed up FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s 2007 debut, “The Way Of The Fist”, which has sold more than 508,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
“American Capitalist” was 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”.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will hit the road for the 48 Hours Festival in Las Vegas on October 15 before kicking off the Share The Welt tour on October 16 in San Francisco.
Joining FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH on the Share The Welt tour will be ALL THAT REMAINS, HATEBREED and REV THEORY.
