This week, 5FDP prepares for a massive hometown headlining show at the Joint in Las Vegas, en route to more west coast headlining dates and a trek into Canada.

The band has just returned from a visit to military bases across Kuwait, where they touched down for performances and or visits on bases that included Camp Moreell, Camp Beuhring, Camp Patriot and others.  This is the band's second visit overseas to perform for the troops in two years .  "What a stellar way to start the spring,” singer Ivan Moody shared.  “Playing for the troops is always an honor and seriously humbling. Can't say enough about the experience- everyone was so respectful and warm. I hope we helped morale and it was a privilege to give back to those that give so much for us."

5FDP's current single, "Remember Everything," has been Top 5 on the Active Rock radio charts for months.  This is the band's ninth straight Top Ten single at Active Rock Radio going back to "The Bleeding" in the spring of 2008.  Five Finger Death Punch are one of the most heavily played bands at rock radio, as "Never Enough," "Stranger Than Fiction," "Hard To See," "Walk Away," "Bad Company," "Far From Home," "Under And Over It," and now "Remember Everything," each has become an anthem in its own rite.  The band's current album, American Capitalist, continues to sell extremely well - with over 345,000 copies sold since its debut at #3 on the Billboard charts October 11th.  Speaking of "Capitalist," the aptly titled release is on pace to go Gold by June, which would be the band's third record to hit RIAA-Certified Gold status in the last two years. Cumulatively, track downloads from 5FDP have exceeded one million sold- a staggering amount in rock today.

Similar success has been witnessed in the Great White North, with the band's second album War is the Answer on the cusp of Canadian Gold certification from the CRIA.  American Capitalist is already not far behind, selling at a much faster rate than War.
