Five Finger Death Punch announced two-part double album coming out this year, Loudwire reports. Despite a fact that their forthcoming album still remains untitled, the band revealed that "Vol. 1" will arrive in stores July 23. Although, "Vol. 2" set to follow at a still-to-be-determined date this fall.

"We came off the road after a couple of great years of touring and were really amped up to write the fourth record," said guitarist Zoltan Bathory. "Everybody was in the right headspace and the band tighter than ever so it was the perfect storm."

He added: "We jumped in head first and found ourselves 12-13 songs deep fairly quick but were still coming up with better and better material, so we looked at each other and said, 'Ok, why stop there? Let's keep going.' Once we passed the 24th song we knew were going to have to do a double album."

Bathory says that putting together a double-disc was a fairly easy decision, adding, "[This music is] very dear to us, possibly the best material this band has ever created. At that point there was no way to decide which songs to leave off the album, so we made the decision to release them all."

Audience will soon be treated to "Lift Me Up," which will be introduced at tonight's (May 2) Revolver Golden Gods Awards ceremony. The show will stream live on AXS TV and Xbox Live. The studio version of the track will arrive at radio the week of May 13, with song available to purchase online as of May 14.

Five Finger Death Punch will spend the summer on the road, first playing European festivals in June before returning to North American to co-headline the 2013 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival.

    Whether you like these guys or not you have to admit they have great energy live, which reminds I still need to buy American Capitalist.
    It's not as good as "The Way of the Fist" or "War is the Answer", but it still has some ballsy songs. You are dead on about their live performance
    im not mental
    not a fan of this band at all, but i decided to stick around and see them last year on trespass america. i gotta say, they do put on a great live show.
    Wow! Once again, another double album! Coheed & Cambria, Stone Sour, Baroness, Soilwork, now this!I believe there is another which I am missing. Also, Justin Timberlake, although including that on here will probably get this comment down voted to oblivion since it's not rock or metal...

    Did they just do this to be like Stone Sour?

    ...that said, i'll check these out. Probably won't pay a cent for them but maybe download it. I don't think they're bad at all besides alot of their riffs sounding almost exactly the same, the solos are pretty good and Ivan Moody has a hell of a voice on him when he sings, his screaming is decent and lyrics are okay. Besides, they make some catchy anthemic choruses here and there.
    Stealing music is a real dick move. Even if you don't like the band and even if said band is successful with or without your purchase
    Don't download. Put up with ads on Youtube or Vevo. At least when you listen to the songs, the artist gets paid for every play.
    I personally love this band and, regardless of likeness to Stone Sour and others, I can't effing wait for these albums.
