Las Vegas hard rockers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have finished recording their ninth studio album.
The band revealed the news in a message that accompanied the release of the lyric video for “Brighter Side Of Grey” from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s last album, “F8”.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH said: “It’s hard to believe that our last record ‘F8’ came out over 2 years ago in the beginning of 2020, born into the whirlwind of events that dominated our lives and will echo into the rest of our history. Those of you intimately familiar with that album, now know how some of ‘F8”s dystopian lyrics became rather prophetic.
“‘Brighter Side Of Grey’ was an important song on that record, but especially personal to [singer] Ivan [Moody] (who’s the only parent in the band). It is a more than fitting commentary to what’s going on in the world that probably needs a good reminder right about now that we are here only for second, a tiny blip on the flow of time… not just as individuals but as an entire species… It took a trillion conditions to be just right for human life to exist in this Universe yet it takes just one to go terribly wrong and make it all disappear.
“This song also serves as the perfect bridge to our new album we just finished this week, which generally revolves around similar existential questions.
“It’s incredible how much we don’t understand about our own existence, yet everyone’s relationship with the concept of death permeates, even orients their entire lives. Can’t wait to share it…
“Enjoy this video, and stay tuned for new music and big tour announcements in the very near future!”
The new FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH record was again recorded at the Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko.
