New Five Finger Death Punch (Vol. 1) Off to Great Start

Five Finger Death Punch released the first of a two-disc set, today.  The album, The Wrong Side of Heaven & the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol. 1, takes an unconventional approach by releasing a double-album, but in two shifts - Volume 2 of the offering to be released later this year.

Vol. 1, co-written and produced by Kevin Churko, who partnered up w/ the band for the last two FFDP albums, is peppered with guest appearances by Tech N9ne, Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Maria Brink (In This Moment) and Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta.  The first single, "Lift Me Up," features Rob Halford.

Guest appearances are one-for-one so far, as "Lift Me Up" has already reached number one on the U.S. Active Rock charts.

Recorded at The Hideout Studio, New Cadium Music signing, Kane Churko, contributes a song by co-writing, "M.I.N.E. (End this Way)."

Look for FFDP on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival tour, and beyond, this Summer.
