Las Vegas rockers Five Finger Death Punch have a new label home

Five Finger Death Punch have inked a new record deal with Rise Records, the rock label associated with BMG. The Las Vegas guys will release new music via Rise Records after they close out their contract with Prospect Park, their current label. Five Finger Death Punch and Prospect Park are currently engaged in a legal battle over the group’s right to record the fourth and final album of their contract with Prospect Park.

“We are looking forward to the next phase of our recording career,” Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory said in a statement. “We have had great success with our current label, Prospect Park, and will continue to enjoy further success with our next and final album (subject to surmounting the label’s court action to prevent us from recording it), after which we will commence a new and exciting label partnership with the people at Rise and BMG.”

Five Finger Death Punch released “Got Your Six” dropped in September of 2014. The group’s Prospect Park contact stated they would have to wait nine months before recording their next release. Prospect Park filed a lawsuit against the band alleging that they attempted to record before the waiting period had passed. In turn, Five Finger Death Punch released a statement calling the lawsuit “the latest in a long line of exploitative and abusive bullying tactics” by Prospect Park.

In other news, Five Finger Death Punch will tour with Shinedown and Sixx:A.M. this fall.
