Multi-platinum hardrock powerhouse Five Finger Death Punch continues to tease their upcoming album by releasing a new song “Times Like These” via Better Noise Music. 5FDP just recently broke the record for most consecutive #1’s on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart as “AfterLife” became their 13th #1. The band has released the title track, “IOU,” and “Welcome To The Circus” so far, giving fans a preview of their most innovative body of work yet.

The band’s last album “F8” produced four #1 hit singles including, “Darkness Settles In,” which previously saw the band tie the record for most consecutive #1’s on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart with Disturbed – a record that they have now broken. Already global rock stars who debuted at #1 on rock charts and Top 10 on the Mainstream charts with their 2020 album “F8” in the USA, Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK, 5FDP is dipping into the Metaverse with “AfterLife”. They created a gamified fan club experience in the form of an interactive virtual world developed on the near photorealistic Unreal Engine on their Five Finger Death Punch Fan Club app here.
Amassing over 8 billion streams and 3 billion video views to date, 5FDP has sold over one million tickets between 2018 and 2020 alone. The band has been lighting up stages in Europe over the last month, with tonight’s last show taking place in Finland. Later this summer, 5FDP will be heading out on tour with special guest Megadeth, performing in cities across North America. Set to kickoff in Portland on August 19, which coincides with the release of “AFTERLIFE”, the tour will span over 30 dates, closing out in Salt Lake City on October 15. Additional support will include The HU and Fire From The Gods, promising an intense multi-faceted night of heavy rock music.
