Metal outfit Five Finger Death Punch will hit the road this spring for a mix of headlining dates and support shows with Korn before launching a summer run as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival.
Following a March 27 appearance at the Extreme Thing festival in Las Vegas, the California-bred band notches its first opening performance for Korn March 29 in Vancouver. A slate of headlining and festival shows gets underway April 9 in Columbia, MO, followed by Mayhem dates - also featuring Korn, along with Rob Zombie and Lamb Of God - in July and August. Dates are shown at this location.
"War Is The Answer," Five Finger Death Punch's second studio set, surfaced in September. Produced by Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne), the album debuted at No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and follows the band's 2007 debut, "The Way Of The Fist."
"It's a phrase we've had up our sleeves for some time, and I've been talking about it a lot in interviews," guitarist Zoltan Bathory told UK music rag Metal Hammer last year, describing the new album's title. "In fact, somebody just asked me: 'If war is the answer, then what is the question?,' and I guess the answer to that is 'the meaning of life!' Because life IS war. Basically, you're fighting against one thing or another right from the start - you're fighting for survival with pretty much everything against you, you're fighting for social or political positions."
The set spawned three singles, including "Hard To See," which peaked at No. 12 on the iTunes Top Rock Songs chart.
