Over the last decade, Five Finger Death Punch has become one of the most recognizable names in music. The band has sold over one million concert tickets in the past two years and over $40 million in merchandise sales globally.
Every record since the release of the band’s 2007 debut album The Way of the Fist, has been certified gold or platinum by the RIAA – four platinum and six gold records.

F8 was produced by the band with long time producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Slash, etc). “F8, the group’s eighth, is their most mature offering to date,” Billboard states. “It features singer Ivan Moody chronicling his daunting path to sobriety over music that traverses a diverse range of styles, from sensitive ballads to balls-out barnstormers.”
Five Finger Death Punch will kick off the next leg of its U.S. arena tour in April 2020 and will bring along special guests Papa Roach, I Prevail, as well as highly acclaimed newcomer Ice Nine Kills.
