Five Finger Death Punch Announce Fall Tour with Escape the Fate, Miss May I, Gemini Syndrome


Story by Charles Ken

Five Finger Death Punch will hit the road this fall in support of their double album

Five Finger Death Punch have been out on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer, and now, those who didn’t get a chance to see the band on Mayhem will have another opportunity to catch the band on the road. The Las Vegas-based metallers have added a handful of North American headlining dates to their 2013 roster in support of the just-released first installment of their double album, “The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1.”

The newly-announced shows follow Five Finger Death Punch’s stint Sept. 15 at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento, Calif. The tour kicks off Sept. 17 at the Armory in Medford. Ore., and, and closes out Oct. 27 at the City Auditorium in Colorado Springs, Colo. Check out the full tour roster below.

Supporting Five Finger Death Punch on the tour will be Escape the Fate, Miss May I and Gemini Syndrome for select dates.

Five Finger Death Punch currently have a No. 1 active rock single in “Lift Me Up,” featuring metal vocalist Rob Halford. Bass player Chris Kael told Audio Ink Radio at the Detroit stop of Mayhem that working with Halford was a dream come true.

“You know, that was an incredible experience, just to be able to work with someone who I’ve been working with for so long,” Kael said of collaborating with Halford. “To be able to have him singing on a track that we wrote and then to even at the Golden Gods awards have him come up onstage, and then to have me sing backup to him, it was pretty good. It’s one of those points when you can say, ‘All the decisions I made in life– I made the right ones.’”

The second installment of the Five Finger Death Punch’s album is expected to arrive sometime this November.
