Five Finger Death Punch’s “The Pride” Premieres On VEVO

| 16 October 2012 | Reply

Las Vegas, NV – Five Finger Death Punch’s  video for “The Pride” premieres on Vevo TODAY, and can be viewed here:  http://www.vevo.com/watch/five-finger-death-punch/the-pride/US5Z51200276.  The clip is the first wherein the band has presented live footage from the road within the short-form music video medium.  Footage was selected from the band’s successful Metal Hammer Presents Trespass America Tour over this past summer, and the band’s critically acclaimed set at Rock On The Range.  The single release of  “The Pride” follows the #1 chart-topping single “Coming Down” which remains all over the airwaves of Active Rock radio.

Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody shares, “One of the best parts of being in this band is that we have the chance to design and build bigger and bigger live shows. Our concerts became spectacular gatherings of our extended family and we wanted to share this amazing experience with everyone. So we wrote & designed this video in dedication of our loyal, dedicated, militant fan base known as Knuckleheads who deserve the best experience we can give them.  You’ve all stood by us & diligently helped us introduce the world to Five Finger Death Punch and this is our way of saying THANK YOU ! We couldn’t have done any of this without all of you. WELCOME TO THE PRIDE !”

American Capitalist (Prospect Park) was recently certified gold by the RIAA for shipping over 500,000 copies in the U.S.  This milestone marks the third consecutive release from the band to achieve gold certification, with The Way of The Fist (2007) and War Is The Answer (2009) achieving this feat prior.  American Capitalist debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts on October 11, 2011. In a challenging retail environment, Five Finger Death Punch is one of the few amongst any genre to consistently see significant success both digitally and physically.   The band’s album sales are complemented with steady single sales that cumulatively have surpassed 3.6 million songs sold.

On achieving this significant milestone with three consecutive gold certified albums, guitarist Zoltan Bathory offered, “I think it’s a huge win for all of us, not just for us as a band but for the entire genre of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. This is a loud and clear indicator that heavy music is in demand and if a relatively new band like us can accomplish something like this, then maybe be this is just the prelude for the shape of things to come.”

Five Finger Death Punch’s single “Coming Down” was the band’s first number one on the Active Rock charts, and the tenth consecutive Top 10 hit at the format.  Going back to “The Bleeding” in the spring of 2008, Five Finger Death Punch has consistently been 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,” “Remember Everything,” and most recently “Coming Down,”  each has become an anthem in its own right.
