Five Finger Death Punch Complete 9th Album, Share New Lyric Video
Five Finger Death Punch announced this week that they had finished recording their ninth full-length album, which will be the follow-up to the Las Vegas heavy metal band's last studio effort, 2020's F8.
The rockers revealed the news in a Monday (April 4) statement that accompanied a new lyric video for "Brighter Side of Grey," F8's finale and a song with special meaning for Death Punch singer Ivan Moody, according to the group. No release date for the forthcoming album has yet been made public.
Five Finger Death Punch said on Monday, "It's hard to believe that our last record F8 came out over two years ago in the beginning of 2020, born into the whirlwind of events that dominated our lives."
They added, "'Brighter Side of Grey' was an important song on that record, but especially personal to Ivan."
The band said the track "also serves as the perfect bridge to our new album we just finished this week, which generally revolves around similar existential questions [to those addressed on F8]. … Can't wait to share it. Enjoy this video, and stay tuned for new music and big tour announcements."
In January, Five Finger Death Punch similarly shared a new video for another one of their previously released songs, 2011's "The Tragic Truth." That clip plumbs the now-sober Moody's addiction struggles. Last November, the lead vocalist teased a portion of some new FFDP music.
