Five Finger Death Punch hits #1 with ‘Coming Down’



Marks Tenth Straight Top Ten Track at Active Rock


Five Finger Death Punch has hit #1 with the band’s current single “Coming Down.”  The track is the tenth consecutive Top 10 hit at the Active Rock format, cementing the act’s position as one of the most relevant at the format.  Going back to “The Bleeding” in the spring of 2008.  Five Finger Death Punch is one of the most heavily played bands at rock radio, as “Never Enough,” “Stranger Than Fiction,” “Hard To See,” “Walk Away,” “Bad Company,” “Far From Home,” “Under And Over It,” and most recently “Remember Everything,” each has become an anthem in its own right.  The band’s current album, American Capitalist, continues to sell extremely well with 436,254 copies sold since its debut at #3 on the Billboard charts October 11th.  The imminent certification of the band’s third record to hit RIAA-Certified Gold status over the last two years, and  cumulative track downloads exceeding one million sold, displays that there are few acts more successful than Five Finger Death Punch.

Singer Ivan Moody shares, “radio stations across the U.S., and basically the whole World, have been very supportive of the band.  We are grateful and remain indebted to them for stepping behind us, and as our fan base continues to grow year after year, it is clear that rock radio is far from dead. People are listening.  With ‘Coming Down,’ there is obviously a deep message of hope this song lyrically offers.  To have success on the radio with a track that is so meaningful to me personally, and many others,  is an amazing feeling.”

The Metal Hammer presented Trespass America Festival featuring headliner Five Finger Death Punch kicked off in Broomfield, CO on July 13th.  The tour has travelled west to east, and now begins to snake its way towards Los Angeles where it wraps on August 28 at the Hollywood Palladium.  Guitarist Zoltan Bathory recently shared, “It’s exhilarating to produce shows this magnitude, especially taking it from the drawing board all the way to giant stages nationwide… The only thing that’s even more exciting than watching our vision materialize is seeing the fans’ reaction.”  The 31-date tour, headlined by Five Finger Death Punch, also features Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, God Forbid, and Battlecross.  Images from the tour opener can be found here:  The itinerary of remaining dates follows below.
