FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have dropped their brand new song “Jekyll and Hyde” at radio and it made it’s Australian premiere last night (Tues, June 16) on Triple J’s The Racket.
It is the first single from their highly anticipated sixth full-length album “GOT YOUR SIX” which will be released on August 28th.The single premiered with an exclusive stream on Monster Energy’s webpage.
“If someone asked me to sum up who and what Five Finger Death Punch is, I would tell them everything they need to know is on this new record. Hands down, “Got Your Six” is our best one yet… As for the first single, everybody is Jekyll and Hyde. There are multiple personalities to every human being, and no matter how civilized and sophisticated you think you are, if you dare to look at yourself very, very closely, you’ll see… somewhere deep down… there is a demon inside. Your circumstances may not have provoked it yet but trust me, it’s there…” says Ivan Moody vocalist of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH about the lyrical theme of the song.
“The verses are actual unaltered voicemails from Ivan. We have an ever-growing collection of these 4:00am messages Ivan usually bombards us with, and Jason had this idea to copy them to a hard drive, then literally wrote the song around them… what you hear is the actual voicemail” reveals FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory about the unusual process of making “Jekyll and Hyde”.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will be touring North American arenas this fall with Papa Roach and support from In This Moment and From Ashes to New.
In an innovative move, the band involved their fans by giving them the opportunity to request the tour come to their city via a “demand campaign’. An overwhelming 1.5 million fans made their voices heard and tracked the daily progress of the conversation via “heat map” online. Fans will get to see four of Rock’s most exciting, relevant bands under one roof in one night for $40 – a nice price for a package sure to excite fans who voted to bring the tour to their town.
