Five Finger Death Punch will be releasing their sixth studio album, appropriately called Got Your Six, on September 4, 2015. However, they decided to stream it on Pandora Premieres for a solid week before release day.
The band had promised a 'heavier' album that their previous work has been, but this album has actually been simply classic 5FDP. Great, but over all, its not heavier than anything else they've ever released.
The over all theme for the album seems to be slightly up for debate. We took it as living for yourself, and not really paying much attention to what society or anyone else really wants for you, but others seemed to not pick up on a message at all.
Several of the songs do seem to go together, such as "Wash It All Away", "Ain't My Last Dance" and "My Nemesis."
"Wash It All Away" is about staying yourself, even if others want you to be something different. "I won't change for you, and I can't take the pain. There's nothing you do and there's nothing you can stay."
"Ain't My Last Dance" is speaking of when you've given all you have to a person, and they just keep wanting more. Honestly, they established this feeling several albums ago, with the song "Never Enough" but the feeling is still very relevant and this track is very well done, so its by far not a repeat of anything. To go with this track is the very next one, "My Nemesis." The two seems to go hand in hand very well, because "My Nemesis" seems to be about living in the moment and asking to be treated the way you treat others.
Those three songs just compliment each other very well, and that was something we quite liked.
One other song that really stood out was "Question Everything", because it tells quite the story that we're not going to give away yet. We will say that Five Finger Death Punch should make a music video for this song, and it gave us many, many ideas that we may be writing about soon.
Five Finger Death Punch has done it once again, and made another incredible album. You can get Got Your Six officially on September 4, wherever music is sold or you can hear it now on Pandora Premieres. Its also worth remembering that 5FDP is on tour right now with Papa Roach, In This Moment and From Ashes To New and will be until October 10. The tour ends at the Rock Allegiance festival in Chester, PA, and about a month after that, the band will go on tour in Europe.
Get excited, because Five Finger Death Punch has a lot of great things going on for you right now.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
