Five Finger Death Punch & Shinedown In Autumn

Got Your Six is the latest album from Five Finger Death Punch.  Released in September, the LP became the first No. 1 album for the Las Vegas-based band.

September was also the month Shinedown released its latest album.  Threat To Survival includes the singles “Cut The Cord” and “State Of My Head” as well as the recently released “Asking For It.”

Turns out both bands are talking up the fall adventure.  First up is Five Finger Death Punch’s Zoltan Bathory.

“I wanted to give you a brilliant quote about trying to keep rock music alive by assembling bills that can sell out arenas where everyone can have the production rock shows deserve, or bringing out new talented bands and expose them to huge crowds … or about rebuilding a community with the help of rock radio, and donating to good causes while we’re at it … but we are so busy doing it that I ran out of quotes,” Bathory said. 

“Shinedown has always been about sharing the undeniable power of rock music,” lead singer Brent Smith said.  “And performing live is where we make that connection most directly, where we can truly experience that power together with our fans in its purest form because we are literally sharing the same physical space, living in that moment as one.  Five Finger Death Punch shares that passion and commitment, and, like us, leaves it all out on the stage every single night. Come experience the power of rock music with us.”
