FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH are set to return to the Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada this June to begin recording their new album. Once again, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will be working with Canadian producer Kevin Churko, who is also known for his work with bands like OZZY OSBOURNE, PAPA ROACH, IN THIS MOMENT, HELLYEAH and numerous others.
On top of that, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is also planning to re-record their debut album, 2007’s “The Way Of The Fist”, later this summer for its 15th anniversary. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory explained the decision to rework the LP in a social media post earlier today (which can be seen below). He wrote: “It was a truly self produced DIY album, mostly recorded in my living room, so we thought it would be really interesting to hear it with a proper big production”.
“The Way Of The Fist” was originally released in July 2007 and was certified gold in April 2011 for sales in excess of 500,000 copies.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s upcoming album will be the band’s first with guitarist Andy James, who replaced Jason Hook last year. James was previously featured on “Broken World”, a song that was included on the second installment of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s greatest-hits collection, “A Decade Of Destruction – Volume 2”, which came out last fall.
