** FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, THE HU and FIRE FROM THE GODS only
One of the most successful rock acts in modern music, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has been hard at work in the studio over the past year writing and recording the follow-up to its 2020 album “F8”. That LP, also produced by Churko, debuted at No. 1 on rock charts around the world, with Top 10 mainstream chart debuts in the USA, Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K. and more. It produced four No. 1 hit singles with “Inside Out”, “A Little Bit Off”, “Living The Dream” and “Darkness Settles In”, the latter of which saw the band tie DISTURBED‘s record for most consecutive No. 1s on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart with seven chart-toppers in a row. The band has amassed over eight billion streams and three billion video views to date and has sold over one million tickets between 2018 and 2020 alone.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is also venturing into the film space, with its appearance in the upcoming horror-thriller film “The Retaliators”, a Better Noise Films production, which is set for a fall 2022 theatrical and streaming release. The band appears both onscreen and on the film’s original soundtrack, alongside some of the biggest names in rock: MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s Tommy Lee, Jacoby Shaddix of PAPA ROACH, Spencer Charnas of ICE NINE KILLS, FROM ASHES TO NEW, THE HU, ALL GOOD THINGS, and more. This past August, the movie had its world premiere at Arrow Video FrightFest in London. Its North American premiere took place at the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles as the opening night film for ScreamFest, where the production took home an award for “Best Make-Up” and earned itself rave reviews, with a rare rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, which it still maintains today.
