Metal outfit Five Finger Death Punch have announced that they are to release a double album this year. The first record is expected to be released on July 23rd, whilst the second record is expected later in 2013. You can see what guitarist Zoltan Bathory had to say about the upcoming double album below.
‘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 a double album. 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 the album. So we made the decision to release them all.’
More details of the albums is expected soon.
