US HEAVYWEIGHTS Five Finger Death Punch will have new single ‘No One Gets Left Behind’ released on March 8th 2010 via Spinefarm Records UK.
Taken from the band’s latest/second album, ‘War Is The Answer’, and with studio track ‘Undone’ included as a bonus, the single will be available on 7” coloured vinyl (a limited, hand-numbered pressing) and as a download with a digital booklet.
The artwork for both formats features photos sent to the group by fans currently serving in the US military – specifically from Heavy Marine Helicopter Squadron 462.
Since the release of the debut 5FDP album ‘The Way Of The Fist’ back in 2007, the band have gained increasing support from US troops on active service, as a result of which their ‘Death Squad’ motif now regularly features on combat vehicles & choppers along with the ‘No One Gets Left Behind’ call to arms.
This latest single, the third from ‘War Is The Answer’, coincides with 5FDP’s headline appearance at the Metal Hammer-backed ‘Hammerfest’, due to take place in Prestatyn from March 12th – 14th.
THE PRESTATYN SHOW will also witness the UK unveiling of a brand new mic stand designed for 5FDP frontman Ivan Moody by Alchemy Studios in the UK.
Produced in solid stainless steel and weighing in at a massive 12-13 stone (!), the mic took over 120 hours to complete, and is a combination of the “classic Alchemy Gothic style” along with themes relating to the band’s ‘War Is The Answer’ release.
“This was the most inspiring challenge we’d encountered in a long time,” says Alchemy founder Geoff (Deth) Kayson, “weeks of creative and developmental work, followed by industrial-scale, white-hot, heavy-duty foundry stuff, but this mic stand has been worth every minute of it!
5FDP are expected to announce a further UK festival appearance for 2010 in the near future.
