This summer, Five Finger Death Punch are stacking up their calendar. In addition to more dates with Metallica, the band has confirmed a headlining tour featuring special guests Slaughter to Prevail. The trek also features the return of shock rock icon Marilyn Manson, who will serve as direct support. The tour begins on August 2 at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania and wraps up on September 19 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, Texas.

A VIP ticket pre-sale begins Monday, March 11 at 10am local time. General tickets go on sale Friday, March 15 at 10am. Fans can sign up for early access to tickets now.

Starting in May, Five Finger Death Punch will embark on a European tour. The headlining shows will coincide with their supporting slots with Metallica. The run begins on 23 May at the OVO Arena in London, United Kingdom and wraps up on 9 July at Barba Negra in Budapest, Hungary. Very special guests for the trek will be Ice Nine Kills.

In 2022, Five Finger Death Punch released their ninth studio album AfterLife through Better Noise Music. Produced by longtime collaborator Kevin Churko, three singles from the album – “AfterLife,” “Welcome to the Circus,” and “Times Like These,” all topped the Mainstream Rock Chart. The record hit No. 10 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums Chart.

Marilyn Manson hasn’t toured in five years. His last album, 2020’s We Are Chaos, performed well commercially, topping the UK’s Rock & Metal Albums chart and peaking at No. 8 on the Billboard 200. The record gave Manson his first No. 1 album in Australia since 1998’s Mechanical Animals. Drummer Gil Sharone, who performed on Manson’s previous two albums – The Pale Emperor (2015) and Heaven Upside Down (2017), left the group in 2019. He was replaced by Black Flag drummer Brandon Pertzborn.

Following the release of the album, Manson was subsequently dropped from his label, Loma Vista Recordings, following sexual abuse allegations from his former fiancé, actress Evan Rachel Wood (True Blood, Westworld, Frozen II). Wood, who was in a relationship with Manson from 2007 to 2010, alleged that Manson had “horrifically abused” her throughout the course of their relationship. The couple got engaged in January of 2010, but split a few months later. After Wood made allegations, several other women also came forward and revealed alleged similar experiences.

According to Rolling Stone, Manson filed lawsuits against Wood and another accuser, artist Ashley “Illma” Gore, for defamation and emotional distress, among other complaints. The lawsuits were dismissed, and Manson has been ordered to pay upwards of $500,000 in compensation to Wood and Gore.

Slaughter to Prevail recently unleashed a brand new single, “Conflict.” The track is the Russian deathcore upstart’s first new piece of material in two years. The group released their debut EP, ‘Chapters Of Misery‘ in 2016 and followed with their debut full-length album, ‘Misery Sermon’ in 2017. They released stand alone singles “Agony” and “Demolisher” in 2019 and 2020 respectively, followed by their second full-length, Kostolom, released in 2021. The album spawned massive hit singles “Baba Yaga” and “Zavali Ebalo.”

They released anti-war anthem ‘1984’ in August of 2022 to oppose Russia’s war on Ukraine. The video for which has racked up 3.1 million views and over 13 million Spotify streams. They followed this with the release of track “Viking” in 2023 which was debuted on their US headline tour to much excitement and acclaim from fans. The video for the track currently has 5.8 milllion views and 10 million Spotify streams.
