FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH ANNOUNCE CANADIAN TOUR, SELECT WEST COAST DATES
SOULFLY TO SUPPORT ALONG WITH WINDOWPANE, PERSIST



Las Vegas, NV - American Capitalism will be heading to the Great White North this spring.  Five Finger Death Punch has announced they will tour Canada as well as the Western US beginning this March, with legendary Soulfly as support, as well as Windowpane and Persist.  5FDP will headline Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and more, while also playing a special Las Vegas hometown show alongside other western-US markets.  Singer Ivan Moody shared, "The few times we've been to Canada it's been absolutely phenomenal.  The fact that we get to take a band like Soulfly with us on a tour like this says it all.  This is going to be one hell of a great time, in no uncertain terms."  Guitarist Zoltán Báthory added, "We only played a handful of dates in Canada, but they were all sold-out so we are really looking forward to a headlining tour up there.   What makes it even sweeter is taking one of our favorite bands Soulfly with us on this trek.  As we are playing bigger and bigger venues, I think it became our responsibility to help expose some great metal bands to our more diverse audience."

This will be 5FDP’s first proper headlining tour in Western Canada, where their current album, American Capitalist is already more than halfway to CRIA-Certified Gold Record Status - a mere three months after its release.  5FDP’s previous album, War is the Answer, is projected to hit CRIA-GOLD Status this spring, right around the time of the tour.

In the US, 5FDP continues to rack up impressive sales with over 280,000 copies of American Capitalist already sold.  Incredibly, American Capitalist is selling twice as fast as their previous Gold record, War Is the Answer- which itself has been one of the best-selling hard rock/ metal albums of the last five years. 5FDP’s current hit single, “Remember Everything” is already Top Five at Active Rock and climbing; their lead single, “Under and Over It,” was recently named Sirius Octane’s Song of the Year, and American Capitalist was named a Top Album of 2011 by ARTISTdirect.

Tickets go on sale to the general public the weekend of January 27th and 28th, but special VIP packages and tickets will be available starting WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25th 3pm LOCAL at www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com.
