About Five Finger Death Punch
Confidently leading heavy music in the 21st century, Five Finger Death Punch continue to make the impossible a reality at every turn. Since their emergence in 2007, the hard rock band has achieved six consecutive RIAA Gold-certified albums and two platinum singles culminating on their gold-selling #1 album Got Your Six, while at the same time being one of the top rock streaming acts globally. They frequently play all major festivals from Download to Rock Am Ring to Rock on the Range and sell out arenas around the globe to countless screaming “Knuckleheads.” Their forthcoming seventh offering will undoubtedly raise the bar again.
Columbus based visionary rock band Starset have long been interested in the cosmological — their music radiates themes that center on science and technology and its potential affects on society now and in the future. This last year of success for Starset has proven that the band is a modern rock powerhouse to reckon with. The band’s latest release, Vessels, debuted at #11 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and #3 on the Rock Chart. Front man Dustin Bates collaborated with Marvel Comics to release a Starset themed graphic novel in the Fall of 2017, and the band recently reached a massive milestone by surpassing 1 Billion views on YouTube. The band’s current single “Satellite” was just released as a remix by TRAILS and has over 1 million views. The remix hit #1 on the Hype Machine Remixes Only Chart and #7 on the Hype Machine Most Popular overall chart.

The upcoming album will feature “Toast To The Ghost” and a cover of The Cranberries seminal single’ “Zombie“, released in honor of Dolores O’Riorden, who was scheduled to record guest vocals on the song the day she passed away. “Zombie” quickly shot to the top of rock and metal charts around the world upon its release.
