Last weekend, Five Finger Death Punch
featuring Epi signature artist Jason Hook
previewed new music from their upcoming studio album. Check out the sample video bel. The band once again worked with longtime producer Kevin Churko. Guitarist Zoltan Bathroy describes the album as the band's best effort yet. "We have a little pie that we belong to in the musical spectrum," Bathroy told Blabbermouth,
“and within that...there are these big, nasty grooves that feel just heavier and grimier, and that's kind of what's happening. The energy of what's in the band now is affecting this process."
Five Finger Death Punch will tour arenas throughout the U.S. this fall with guests Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves, and Fire From the Gods. The tour will kick off with a special two night stand at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, Nevada November 1-2 with additional tour stops in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Arizona with more dates to come for 2020.

"It's a rock solid guitar," Hook told Epiphone.
"It totally meets up to my expectations. It sounds great. It has all the same hardware, the same pickups, same wood, fretboard, frets... but it's less expensive than the Gibson. And that part is exciting because even though I'm incredibly proud of the Gibson, our demographic is made up of younger kids. Not everyone can afford the Gibson. I noticed that when we released it. So, I'm really excited now that I'm coming out with another guitar that's going to be at a price point that's more user friendly for families and to our fans. The process was pretty easy actually. We kind of modeled it after the specs that were on the M4-Sherman. The only thing that's different really is the paint scheme. This time it's red with white stripes as opposed to white with olive stripes."
