, Five Finger Death Punch Go Gold and talk about follow up to ‘American Capitalist’

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory recently said, “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 this is just the prelude for the shape of things to come.”

It doesn’t stop there however as the band has also kicked ass in the singles department surpassing 3.6 million songs sold.

Singer Ivan Moody says, “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.”

Guitarist Jason Hook also recently said that the group is already looking to the follow up to ‘American Capitalist’ with a potential January start date.
