Five Finger Death Punch & Breaking Benjamin
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and BREAKING BENJAMIN have released separate video teasers for a summer 2018 U.S. co-headlining tour that will also feature BAD WOLVES with a stop at Jones Beach on Thursday, Sept 6.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s greatest-hits collection, ‘A Decade Of Destruction’, was released on December 1. The set includes two new songs, ‘Trouble’ and a cover of THE OFFSPRING’s ‘Gone Away’… The hits collection and an already completed new studio album are part of a deal to settle a legal dispute and close out the band’s contract with Prospect Park.. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s seventh full-length LP, which was finished more thana year ago, will follow up 2015’s ‘Got Your Six’ and will be released in the spring.
BREAKING BENJAMIN’s sixth studio album, ‘Ember’, will be released on April 13 via Hollywood Records… Produced by BREAKING BENJAMIN, ‘Ember’ is the follow-up to the band’s 2015 release ‘Dark Before Dawn’, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart and spun off three No. 1 rock radio tracks, ‘Failure’ (2015’s most played Active Rock track), ‘Angels Fall’ and ‘Never Again’. The first single from ‘Ember’, ‘Red Cold River’, was released on January 5 and the accompanying video has nearly four million views.
Breaking Benjamin have been revealing more and more music since the start of the year en route to the April 13 street date for their Ember album. ‘Red Cold River’ is doing well at radio as the lead single, while the songs ‘Feed the Wolf’ and ‘Blood’ have also been issued ahead of the album’s release.. While official details have yet to be released, Five Finger Death Punch are set to release their long-anticipated next album after resolving their label issues and delivering a hits collection late last year. The new album is expected to arrive in late spring and they’ve remained perched at rock radio with their cover of The Offspring’s ‘Gone Away’ and the song ‘Trouble’ in recent months..
Meanwhile, Bad Wolves are just starting to make their mark, but have generated quite a bit of buzz as one of 2018 potential breakout bands. Their cover of The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’ has been well received and a new album is expected this spring. Stay tuned for details on the tour when it is announced… BAD WOLVES, which is managed by Zoltan Bathory of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, consists of of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-DIVINE HERESY, SNOT), drummer John Boecklin (ex-DEVILDRIVER), guitarist Doc Coyle (VAGUS NERVE, ex-GOD FORBID), guitarist Chris Cain (BURY YOUR DEAD) and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-IN THIS MOMENT)… BAD WOLVES’ debut album will be released in the spring on Eleven Seven Music.
