Eighth Studio Album, “F8” – New Single, Spring Tour
Rock juggernaut, Five Finger Death Punch, have announced their long awaited eighth studio album titled “F8” today. The album will be released globally on February 28th, 2020 and is available for pre-order now.
Five Finger Death Punch are the 3rd biggest artist in the hard rock space measured by total consumption (sales and streams) – surpassed only by Metallica and AC/DC. Newly signed to Better Noise Music, they’ve garnered 22 top ten hit singles over the last few years.
Today, Five Finger Death Punch also premiered the debut single from F8, “Inside Out” one of the most personal songs that the band has released to date.
Fans who pre-order the album digitally will receive an instant download of “Inside Out” along with two other new tracks before the release on February 28th. The album will be available in the following formats: CD, digital download, mastered for iTunes download, double gatefold vinyl and picture disc vinyl. The band also curated special F8 merchandise bundles of albums with exclusive t-shirts, hoodies and more available for pre-order now as well.
Says Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory, “We had an extremely successful, yet tumultuous couple of years as a band. We didn’t just weather the storm but came out on the other side better than ever. It was a focused sober group recording, our most important album to date, and without a question, it shows. This album represents rebirth, progression, and transcendence both personally and musically.” Vocalist Ivan Moody adds, “This record to me is ‘absolution’ – everything I’ve done in my life has led up to this moment.”
F8 was produced by Five Finger Death Punch with long time producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Slash, etc).
The new album F8 follows Five Finger Death Punch’s hugely successful 2018 release, And Justice For None, which debuted in the Top 5 around the world and became the #1 streaming Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album of that year. They’ve built a rabid, global fanbase by creating a unique sound that blurs the line between rock and metal, which has never been more apparent than on their upcoming eighth studio album F8 and their upward trajectory doesn’t seem to waver.
Five Finger Death Punch also announced today that they will kick off the 2nd leg of their current U.S. arena headline tour in April 2020, featuring special guests Papa Roach, I Prevail, as well as highly acclaimed newcomer Ice Nine Kills. The tour is co-produced by Frank Productions and Live Nation. See all dates below.
Papa Roach have been one of the leaders in alternative rock for nearly 26 years. The two-time GRAMMY-nominated band have sold over 20 million records worldwide, garnered over 2 billion streams to date, and charted over 14 Top 5, hit singles and six #1 hit singles including “Last Resort” (2000), “Scars” (2005), and most recently, “Born for Greatness” (2018). Their 10th studio album, Who Do You Trust? marks a paradigm career shift for the band, with singles “Who Do You Trust?” and “Elevate” having steadily remained in the Top 10 at Active Rock Radio.
I Prevail’s 2016 debut album, Lifelines, was one of the most successful debut releases for a hard rock band in the last decade in terms of sales and streams, with nearly 600,000 copies sold to date. The GRAMMY nominees’ sophomore album, Trauma, tells the complicated story of what the band went through to get to where they are today.
Ice Nine Kills has built a growing legion of fans with their horror-inspired soundtracks and theatrical live performances. Their new hit single “A Grave Mistake” landed in the Top 10 Rock Radio charts. They were named SiriusXM’s ‘Future Five’ Breakthrough Artists of 2019. Following a world tour, the band released The Silver Scream: Final Cut.
Five Finger Death Punch are currently touring U.S. arenas before heading to Europe right after the holidays for their nearly sold out arena run with very special guests, Megadeth, and global breakout rock sensation, Bad Wolves.

Five Finger Death Punch has become one of the most recognizable names in music. They frequently play all major festivals and sell out arenas around the world. After releasing their debut album, The Way of the Fist, in 2007, the rising metal stalwarts released five consecutive albums that were certified Gold or higher by the RIAA. The band has earned numerous awards and honors and is one of the few recipients of the prestigious Soldier Appreciation Award from the Association Of The United States Army. In 2019, the band collaborated with Brantley Gilbert, Brian May, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd to release their version of the latter’s hit “Blue On Black,” now one of the Top 10-Selling Rock Songs of 2019, with proceeds from the track being donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation.
