Five Finger Death Punch: 'People Are Listening, That's All That Counts'
As one of today's most prominent metal acts, Five Finger Death Punch furthered their success with the latest record "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol. 1." Singer Ivan Moody addressed the band's musical growth and high album sales, noting that the new album "encompasses the entire catalogue" of 5FDP. "When we first started, we were [in] a business relationship, we were like partners," the frontman kicked off while discussing band chemistry. "We really didn't know each other, we didn't hang out, it wasn't a clubhouse by any means. But through time, we got to know each other and became more intimate. At this point - we fight among ourselves, but the second there's an outsider, we all join together, it's like a transformer." Apart from underlining how honored the group was for having the likes of Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford or Soulfly's Max Cavalera joining them in the studio, Ivan humbly addressed the impressive 4 million albums sale figure, pointing out that it makes the group feel like they're "doing something right." "People are listening, that's all that counts man," he briefly said. Finally, Moody discussed the upcoming European tour with Avenged Sevenfold, giving M. Shadows and co. nothing but props. "We're lucky enough that those guys are friends with us," he started. "We told them we're trying to break ground in Europe and UK - how do we go about it? An they're like 'Well, come with us, we'll show you.' It's just amazing, those guys are great. They're fantastic musicians, good people, make stellar music." "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol. 1." was released on July 30 via Prospect Park. With 112,000 copies sold in the US during the first week, it landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
