2009: THE YEAR OF THE DEATH PUNCH

Five Finger Death Punch made huge strides in the rock and metal scene this year when they released their sophomore album War Is The Answer. The album was released on September 22nd and debuted at # 7 on the Billboard charts, and continues to perform well.

Proof of the band’s impact can also be seen on several Year End music lists. The 5FDP song “Hard To See” was ranked one of AOL Radio’s Top Rock Songs of 2009, and was also a Top 10 track at Active Rock. Furthermore, 5FDP’s fan-favorite track “No One Gets Left Behind” made # 3 on AOL Radio’s Top Metal Songs of 2009.

Earlier in the year 5FDP won respected UK magazine METAL HAMMER’s Golden God Award for “Best New Band.”

Here are a few other notable nominations and awards for 5FDP in 2009:

*5FDP VOTED TOP TEN GUITAR RIFFS OF 2009 BY GUITAR EDGE MAGAZINE

*FMQB: NAMED MOST PROMISING BAND OF 2009

*KERRANG! AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST BAND 2009

To kick off 2010 with a bang, 5FDP are going on tour and offering the first 100 women to line up at each venue the day of the show FREE admittance. “We thought this was a cool idea to help out fans, “ relates bassist Matt Snell. “We didn’t think dudes would mind.”
