THE METAL HAMMER PRESENTED TRESPASS AMERICA FESTIVAL FEATURING HEADLINER FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH IS UNDERWAY

Tour Began Friday Night In Broomfield, CO

QUINTET'S LATEST SINGLE "COMING DOWN" IS THE BAND'S TENTH CONSECUTIVE TRACK TO HIT THE TOP TEN AT RADIO




The Metal Hammer presented Trespass America Festival featuring headliner Five Finger Death Punch kicked off Friday night in Broomfield, CO.  The tour will travel coast to coast, and then back again, wrapping in Los Angeles on August 28 at the Hollywood Palladium.  Guitarist Zoltan Bathory shared, "It's exhilarating to produce shows this magnitude, especially taking it from the drawing board all the way to giant stages nationwide... The only thing that's even more exciting than watching our vision materialize is seeing the fans' reaction."  The 31-date tour, headlined by Five Finger Death Punch, also features Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, God Forbid, and Battlecross.  Images from the tour opener can be found here: https://10thst.box.com/s/4b98505baf689a6e509f.

5FDP's
current single, "Coming Down,"  is the band's tenth 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 most recently "Remember Everything," has become an anthem in its own right.  The band's current album, American Capitalist, continues to sell extremely well with over 420,000 copies sold since its debut at #3 on the Billboard charts October 11th.  The imminent certification of the band's third record to hit RIAA-Certified Gold status over the last two years, and  cumulative track downloads exceeding one million sold, displays that there are few in rock more relevant than Five Finger Death Punch over the last several years.

The Metal Hammer Trespass America Festival has pledged $1.00 for every ticket sold this summer to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's network of crisis call centers .  In cooperation with the Lifeline, Five Finger Death Punch filmed a public service announcement that can be screened here:  http://youtu.be/IUY6rohaBBY.  Guitarist Zoltan Bathory recently shared, "Through support and awareness, suicide can be prevented.  Five Finger Death Punch  is promoting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to build awareness that there is support out there for those in need through the Lifeline's service, and others.  This is an important initiative we have taken on to place it on the consciousness of the public that you are not alone when in need. " The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is administered by Link2Health Solutions Inc., a wholly owned affiliate of the Mental Health Association of New York City.
