Since the July 2007 release of their debut album, The Way of the Fist, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has shown no sign of slowing down. FFDP has sold over 238,000 albums, generated two Top 10 Active Rock radio hits, and brought their pummeling and melodic brand of heavy metal to a legion of dedicated fans across the country. FFDP boasts a 34% jump in sales this week and are currently one of the Top 5 metal bands on MySpace. The Way of the Fist is now available in Canada and will be available worldwide on January 19, 2009. The album has never left the Billboard Top 200 and is currently #141 (#3 on Heatseekers!).
Even in the current economy (and with people not buying records like they used to) FFDP continues to outsell most new artists from the past year, selling between 4,000-5,000 units/week. Their current headlining tour with In This Moment and Bury Your Dead has been incredibly successful. The latest single, “Stranger Than Fiction,” continues to climb the charts at radio and cracked the top 20 this week (currently #19). FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is prominently featured in this month’s issue of Revolver Magazine, with upcoming features in Guitar World and Hit Parader!
