5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory states: "We are currently playing all the European festivals and are having an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch. We can't wait to come back this Fall and especially with In Flames which is one of my favorite bands. This will be something special to see…”
In Flames singer Anders Fridén offers: “We’ve been lucky to play for so many Jesterheads around the World this year and can’t think of a better way to end 2017 than touring Europe with Five Finger Death Punch. We’ll see you soon Jesterheads and Knuckleheads. It’s going to be a tour to remember.”
Support on select EU dates and all UK dates of the tour comes from Of Mice & Men. The Orange County, CA-based band recently returned with two brand new songs, “Back To Me” and “Unbreakable,” via Rise Records. They performed a successful main stage set at Download Festival this past weekend and will be on tour across Europe throughout July. The band has sold over 700,000 records worldwide and previously toured with the likes of Linkin Park, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson.
Both Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames remain leaders of hard rock and heavy music worldwide:
Five Finger Death Punch’s crushingly epic 2015 sixth full-length studio album Got Your Six, hit new heights for the band around the world with chart-topping debuts in the US (#1 on Top Album chart, #1 on Overall Digital Album chart, #1 on the Hard Music Album chart, #2 on the Billboard Top 200) and internationally (Australia & Canada #3, Germany & Sweden #5, UK #6 Holland #17, Belgium #29 and France #32). The album was the sixth consecutive one to earn the Las Vegas rockers a RIAA Gold certification. Acclaimed by The Guardian and Classic Rock, it yielded four successive Active Rock smashes “Jekyll & Hyde” (50.4 million Spotify streams), #1 hit single “Wash It All Away” (32.9 million Spotify streams), “My Nemesis” #2 (16.29 million Spotify streams) and most recently “I Apologize” #3 (17.5 million Spotify streams). Refining their inimitable fusion of intricate instrumentation and undeniable hooks, Got Your Six represents yet another high watermark for the group who claim 17 consecutive Top 10 Hits, five #1 songs and frequently outsell the majority of bands in their genre.
12 albums into their storied career, In Flames reached new heights on 2016’s Battles—produced by GRAMMY Award winner Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach], hitting Top 10 charts around the World with a #2 in Sweden, #3 in Finland and multiple other major countries such as Germany and Austria. Alternative Press, Metal Hammer, and more praised the record as the hit “The End” clocked over 6.6 million Spotify streams and counting. Most recently, they unleashed two new official music videos for their latest singles; first being “Here Until Forever” in May via Decibel, HERE and “Save Me” via European retail giant EMP, today upon announcement of the tour.
