Tickets go on sale to the public this weekend, Aug. 14-16, with a special fan club pre-sale on Wednesday at 3 p.m. local time.

The second leg of the Shock And Raw tour will be announced next Monday, Aug. 17 with dates immediately following the Oct. 16 show and running through Nov. 2.

5FDP will then head to Europe in November for a soon to be announced tour.

War Is The Answer, the band’s second full-length studio album, is set for release Sept. 22.

“We are very proud of this record and tour,” guitarist Zoltan Bathony said. “It’s good to be going back on the road – we have been hearing it from fans for a while now asking us to come back through their town again. Now that we have this new record which is a huge step forward for us, we cannot wait to unleash it to the masses live.”
