Five Finger Death Punch has announced that the first release of two new studio albums The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1 (Prospect Park) will be now available on July 30. The deluxe edition featuring a bonus 15 track live CD, PURGATORY [Tales From The Pit], alongside the 14 songs featured on the album, will be available for pre-order via iTunes on June 18.
This release will be accompanied by a redeemable limited edition t-shirt with the physical pressing only. Also, on June 18, a collectible limited edition box set featuring a 5FDP lunch box, the deluxe version of the album with the bonus live CD, an early free download of an exclusive new track from volume 1 of The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, and assorted collectible items will be available for pre-sale exclusively through the band’s web store. The imagery for both upcoming studio albums was created by legendary comic book artist and illustrator Greg Capullo (Batman, Spawn).
In front of the album, the lead single “Lift Me Up” (featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest) catapulted to the #1 most shared song on Spotify upon impact. The track also enjoyed the highest chart debut at active rock radio in the band’s career, debuting at #18, currently positioned at #8 in just three weeks. The audience reaction has been immediate, with the song exploding straight into power rotation at Sirius / XM’s Octane, alongside Top 10 airplay in markets across the U.S. Five Finger Death Punch has become an artist with undeniably significant relevance in popular culture that continues to grow with each milestone the band achieves.
