Five Finger Death Punch Bring Moshing Mayhem to Rock On The Range 2012
Shortly before Five Finger Death Punch took the main stage on Saturday at Rock On The Range, the band was told by promoters that security had been doubled for their set. Jeremy Spencer and company took that as a compliment. I got to sit down with Jeremy earlier that day, and he said the band was simply happy they were asked back to play this year…(watch the interview to find out why). We also discussed the band’s latest record,American Capitalist. Jeremy said the band really matured on this album. Later on, 5FDP proceeded to bring Rock On The Range to it’s knees with a brutal set, starting some of the craziest mosh pits of the weekend.
Five Finger Death Punch
exploded on to the scene in 2005. They hit the mainstream in 2007 with their sophomore effort, War Is The Answer, which hit #7 on the Billboard Top 200. The band toured relentlessly that year, headlining their own Shock and Raw U.S. Tour. In 2010 they supported Godsmack on their Oracle Tour, and played the main stage at Mayhem Festival alongside Lamb of God, Korn, and Rock On The Range headliner Rob Zombie.
The band is still touring hard in support of their third album, 2011’s American Capitalist, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. This summer, the band is headlining the Trespass America Festival with Killswitch Engage, Trivium, God Forbid, Pop Evil, and more. They guys are so stoked about this festival, and are bringing out full production for their set unlike anything they’ve ever done before! Get your Five Finger Death Punch
