Five Finger Death Punch has finally released their music video for their song, "My Nemesis."
Now normally, I would find out about a release like this through social media. I would either be looking out for news, and actually searching for it, or I would just be casually scrolling and stumbling upon it. In this instant, neither one was the case.
I found out about this video's release, along with what they said about it because I heard my mother sobbing at the dining room table. I came out to see what was wrong, and she answers with, "THIS MUSIC VIDEO!" And then proceeded to explain and read what 5FDP wrote about it when they posted it on Facebook.
Zoltan had written, "In life everyone has a nemesis… it can be anything… a self defeating thinking pattern, a bad habit, an addiction, an adversary… something or someone that puts you in an impossible scenario, where you are presented with a fork in the road. Sometimes there is no other choice but making a hard choice. You can give up and just suffer the situation, or you can use your pain to overcome it, as pain is truly the wind in the sails of change. We wanted to present a story about moving on, a story that probes and questions compassion and loyalty. Those are beautiful notions, but remember you have to be loyal and fair to yourself as well, so will you sacrifice yourself for another or will you live with the guilt that you didn't."
At the risk of giving anything about the video away, we're not going to talk about it much. Just watch it. Unfortunately, there's a high chance that many people out there can relate to the video. The video is very hard hitting, and does help some people get past their nemesis. Sometimes you have to lose everything to see the error in your way. That's all we're going to say, just watch the video below.
Also remember that Five Finger Death Punch has a lot coming up here very soon!
They will be performing in Australia April 15 through the 25, and then head back to the US to begin performing at several of the big festivals. Their fun begins atFort Rock on April 30, and Welcome To Rockville on May 1. They will also go on a short, four day tour with Shinedown before performing at Rock On The Range, Rock'n Derby, Rocklahoma and the Chicago Open Air Fest.
They also will be moving onto Europe in the summer to play theProvinssi Rock Fest in Finland, Bråvalla Festival in Sweden, With Full Force Festival in Germany, Rock For People in the Czech Republic, Two Days A Week Festival in Austria, Jarocin Festival 2016 in Poland, and several more! For more information, please visit the respective festival websites and Five Finger Death Punch's official website.
The Oscars' happened over the weekend, and while most of the internet is flipping out over Leonardo DeCaprio finally winning a damn Oscar, I'm over here cracking up over a headline we just saw. We saw something about Rob Zombie being mistaken for a homeless man at the Oscars, and being tackled. This is the story, which Rob has confirmed is fake.
During the pre-show, security got word of some man that appeared to be homeless, and somehow slipped past security guards. Given how prestigious the event is, that is nearly impossible, so of course, they went straight on it.
Right as they tackled this 'homeless man', a pack of Marbolos fell out of the man's pocket, and bounced off the floor. He did not resist, but supposedly cried out, “Dig through the ditches and burn through the witches — I slam in the back of my dragula!”
I questioned if this was true, and obviously it is not. BUT I wouldn't put it past Rob Zombie to do something like that. Surely the security guards would be extremely embarrassed to realize what they had just done, if it had really happened.
Pretty sure tackling a highly respected, multi media artist at a very classy event is frowned upon.
I'm also just picturing the situation of them trying to apologize while Rob shouts his own lyrics from 1998 in response. There's something just wonderfully hilarious about that.
Someone got very creative coming up with this, and I love it.

We are hoping to go to the Tampa, Florida date on July 2. What date are you hoping to go to?
If you saw the title of this article and responded with, "What the hell??" or some variation of that, then you responded exactly like we did when we heard about this through Rocksound Magazine.
As all BMTH fans know, they are incredibly busy this year. Between their own headlining tours in the US, Australia and Europe, and their many festival appearances coming up, they're extremely busy. They never seem to stop, so them announcing yet another tour isn't a shock. This one however, caused quite the stir.
And most of that stir screamed NOPE.
This tour was Justin Bieber's Purpose tour, the UK leg, which had support from Zayn Malik and BMTH. We were going to get a picture of the poster, which was posted by Oli Syke's clothing company, Drop Dead on Twitter. However, it was taken down, and this was tweeted.
Yes, this was a total joke, and just given the lineup, it was pretty damn obvious. But the fake tour dates were as follows;
October 11 & 12 -London, UK -The O2
October 17 & 18- Birmingham Barclaycard Arena
October 20 & 21- Manchester Arena
October 26- Sheffield Arena
October 27- Glasgow The SSE Hydro
If you actually want to see BMTH though, you have many, many chances to do so.
They will be touring in South America this March, all over Europe through April 22, and then at all sorts of festivals in the US, and later on in Europe. They will be performing at 14+ festivals, most of which are listed below!
Welcome To Rockville, Fort Rock, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Rock On the Range, BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend 2016, Rock Am Ring, Rock IM Park, Greenfield festival 2016, Aerodrome Festival, Hellfest, the Amnesia Rockfest and more!
Perhaps you've seen someone go "Damn Daniel" for no apparent reason, and questioned what the hell it was.
If you're clueless like I was until just a little while ago, and assumed it was the male version of "Bye Felicia", here's the video...
I don't see the point....is there even one? I don't know, but the fact that someone decided to mash this up with A Day To Remember's "Right Back At It Again" video, does make it a bit more entertaining.
Check out this ridiculous little video if you want a chuckle.
Aside from being mashed up with a meme all the sudden, A Day To Remember have a lot coming up.
They will be headlining the Self Help tour on March 19, and then will be heading out on a tour with State Champs and Parkway Drive! The tour actually kicks off on April 30, with the 2016 Fort Rock festival, which is followed by Welcome To Rockville. The tour itself goes all the way through May 21, and concludes with the Rock N' Derby. Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion and Rock on The Range will all be happening during this tour as well.
For further information, please check out A Day To Remember's official website or the festival websites! If you're interested in their tour, I would hurry as some dates are already sold out.
Here very shortly, Pop Evil will set out on a tour with Devour the Day, and then will be going out on tour with Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin!
Their tour with Devour the day begins on March 18, and will go through March 24. They then will head up to Canada with Red Sun Rising and Smashing Satellites for a short tour before returning back to the US to play even more shows with Smashing Satellites. They will be in Canada March 27 through April 5, and back in the US with Smashing Satellites April 16 through the 27.
That brings us to the festivals and the tour with Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin. April 29, they will be playing at the 98Rockfest, April 30, they will be at Welcome To Rockville, and May 1 is Fort Rock. Then, finally on May 3, they will embark on tour with Disturbed, and Breaking Benjamin. The tour goes through May 25.
In the middle of the tour are some different festivals, such as Carolina Rebellion, Rockfest 2016, Rock'N Derby and Rock On The Range. Just after the festival ends, Pop Evil will also be performing at the River City Rockfest, the Sound Of Music festival and finally the Chicago Open Air fest.
For further information, such as exact tour dates, please head over to Pop Evil's official website.
For any festival information, please check out the respective festival websites.
