Five Finger Death Punch and Volbeat are teaming up for a fall North American co-headlining tour, and one of the unique aspects of the package is that the two bands will be sharing production costs together. Drummer Jeremy Spencer told us that will make for a bigger show all around:
“It’s better for the fans. If everyone has all the stuff that they want, that’s what makes the show exciting, and the fans are gonna walk away from that going, ‘Man, you have to go see that, that was incredible!’ So I think it’s awesome. The more stuff, the better. Let’s have everyone bring all the toys they want.”
- The trek, also featuring support acts Hellyeah and Nothing More, gets underway on September 15th in Salt Lake City, winding down on October 24th in Las Vegas.
- Five Finger Death Punch is touring behind its two 2013 releases, The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, Parts 1 & 2.
- Guitarist Zoltan Bathory told Billboard that the band already has “five, six ideas” for songs for its next album, which he would like to see released by the summer of 2015. Bathory explained, “In this environment I don’t think that bands can allow themselves to stay in a studio for two, three, four years and wait and try to write some masterpiece.”
