Five Finger Death Punch has announced that on July 23, they will be releasing part 1 to a two part album. Part two does not have a release date as of yet, but they say it will be out sometime in the fall.
The album will be titled The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, and once again will be released on July 23. The album is not on pre-sale yet, but you can buy the debut single, "Lift Me Up" on iTunes, which is linked at the bottom of this article. The single cover art can also be viewed below.
The song debuted at the Golden God Awards, where they performed it with Rob Halford.
Ivan Moody has spoken out about what it was like to work with Rob Halford, and the song itself. “First and foremost, just to work alongside an icon like Rob Halford, THE Metal God, was absolutely surreal. The song itself was originally written about overcoming everyday obstacles and less than perfect situations. Most of us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouth but if life dealt you all the wrong cards, you still have to play. The song’s intent is to inspire; if you play that hand right you might just come out on top anyway."
Guitarist, Zoltan Bolthan also had something to say about it at the Golden God Awards. "It was a situation where we had so much material and we were so happy with what we recorded. It’s like what are you going to leave off of the record? So we were like let’s not even vote. A year from now, if we waited too long, a year or two from now you don’t even know what kind of mindset you’re going to be in. And this is current, this is right now! This is how we feel right now.”
Falling In Reverse announced yesterday that they have to cancel the rest of their tour dates for the month of May due to the fact that Ronnie Radke's girlfriend is about to give birth to their first child.
Also, Mayday Parade announced yesterday that they have a new album coming from Fearless Records this fall. No other information was announced.
