Judas Priest's Rob Halford Features On New Five Finger Deathpunch Single - Listen Now

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

Five Finger Death Punch have released the lead single from the first of their forthcoming new studio albums via all digital retailers. The track, 'Lift Me Up' (featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest), debuted live at the  Revolver Golden Gods Awards Show last week where the band were joined on stage by Judas Priest’s Rob Halford . Singer Ivan Moody said:

"First and foremost, just to work alongside an icon like Rob Halford, THE Metal God, was absolutely surreal. The song itself was originally written about overcoming everyday obstacles and less than perfect situations.  Most of us weren't born with a silver spoon in our mouth but if life dealt you all the wrong cards, you still have to play.  The song's intent is to inspire; if you play that hand right you might just come out on top anyway."  

Five Finger Death Punch will release 'The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 1' on July 22nd, while Volume 2 is scheduled for later this year. Eleven Seven will release the albums outside of North America. Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory recently stated:

"We came off the road after a couple of great years of touring and were really amped up to write the 4th record. Everybody was in the right headspace and the band tighter than ever so it was a perfect storm. We jumped in head first and found ourselves 12-13 songs deep fairly quick but were still coming up with better and better material so we looked at each other and said…. ok why stop there?  Let's keep going. Once we passed the 24th song we knew we're going to have to do two albums. We had this massive amount of music that's very dear to us, possibly the best material this band has ever created. At that point there was no way to decide which songs to leave off one album. So we made the decision to release them all."

In June, Five Finger Death Punch will return to Europe for a tour of major festivals including  a slot on the main stage at Download Festival, Donington Park (June 16th) concluding the run with a performance at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Ceremony in London.
