After the success of #1 U.S. Active Rock radio chart hit “Lift Me Up” (featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest) from Volume 1, the band now debuts the single “Battleborn” from Volume 2 at radio. Fans who pre-order the album from itunes will receive “Battleborn” as an instant gratification track. The official video for “Battleborn” will premiere early next week
Frontman Ivan Moody explains the meaning behind “Battleborn”: “After getting off the road from two years of touring I was physically and emotionally drained. It felt like I’d seen almost every inch of the globe and shook every hand there was to shake. I completely lost track of time, the flights, the travel, the shows all seemed to blur together. My family and friends became a distant memory. Even though I was doing what I’d dreamed of doing, it took all the energy that I had…it was exhausting. That made me realize, everything worth fighting for you will actually HAVE TO fight for. Every wish, every dream, every idea comes to existence only through blood, sweat and sacrifice…we are all battle born.”
Five Finger Death Punch will kick off their expansive U.S. and Canada Fall run, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven Tour” with a performance at Aftershock Festival in Sacramento on September 15. Following the fall tour, FFDP will join Avenged Sevenfold as special guest on their arena tour all across Europe from November 8 through to December 5 before closing out the year with several headlining shows in Russia.
The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Vol. 1 was released on July 30th 2013 and debuted as the #1 rock album across the globe: #2 in the U.S. on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart (selling 113,000 albums in its first week), #3 in Canada, #4 on Germany’s mainstream charts, #12 in Australia and #21 in the UK.
Volume 1 has sold over 210,000 albums to date and is fast approaching the level of success of the band’s three previous consecutive Gold certified albums: The Way of The Fist (2007), War Is The Answer (2009) and American Capitalist (2011).
Cumulative single sales for FFDP have now exceeded over 4.5 million.
