FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will release their sixth studio album, “Got Your Six”, on August 28. To promote the CD, the band will embark on a North American co-headlining tour with PAPA ROACH this fall with special guests IN THIS MOMENT and FROM ASHES TO NEW. Artwork for “Got Your Six” is also revealed and can be seen below.
Coinciding with the tour announcement today, the bands also launched a special video about the tour which contains a pre-view to the first new single, “Jekyll And Hyde,”.
Says Zoltan Bathory (guitar) of Five Finger Death Punch: “This tour is shaping up to be the perfect storm. We are really good friends with PAPA ROACH so for years we’ve been talking about touring together and it’s finally coming together in a big way. Both FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH are bands of the people – our fans are who propelled us to success. So what better way than to give the fans ownership in the tour? In the world of Wikipedia and Kickstarter where crowd funding and crowd sourcing has become the standard of community effort and the new way of making things happen this might quite possibly be the future of touring – you simply ask the fans where they want you to go”.
“We are super excited to be sharing the stage on this co-headliner with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH,” says PAPA ROACH vocalist, Jacoby Shaddix. “This will give PAPA ROACH the chance to put on the best, most epic live show to date. Our fans are going to be so stoked for these shows coming up. We seriously can’t wait to get out on the road for this tour.”

Maria Brink (vocals) and Chris Howorth (guitars) of IN THIS MOMENT noted: “We are beyond excited to tour North America with our good friends FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH! Our bands have known each other for a long time and have done various shows and tours together over the years, but we’ve never combined forces like this. It’s big and it’s beautiful, faces will be melted, souls will be crushed — this is definitely a tour not to be missed!”
Vocalist Matt Brandyberry of FROM ASHES TO NEW says: “We are beyond ecstatic to be a part of such an amazing lineup. This honestly, is a dream come true for us to be playing with such inspirational artists. We can’t thank everyone enough for believing in us as musicians and giving us the chance to show the world what we are made of!”
