Following 2011's American Capitalist, Five Finger Death Punch has announced a pair of new albums. The band will release their fourth and fifth studio albums in two installments with Vol. 1 hitting stores on July 23rd and Vol. 2 scheduled for later this fall. Prospect Park will release the albums in North America and Eleven Seven releases them in all other territories.

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory reveals: "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."

The band will be kicking off the new album cycle by introducing the first single, "Lift Me Up" with a live performance featuring a very special surprise guest at Revolver Magazine's Golden Gods Awards ceremony in Los Angeles this Thursday where the band will appear live alongside Metallica, Stone Sour and Halestorm amongst others. The studio version of the song will premiere in the U.S. on radio on May 13th and will be available for purchase online May 14th.

In June, Five Finger Death Punch returns to Europe for a tour of festivals including Sweden Rock, Germany's Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park and the U.K.'s Download Festival at Donington Park concluding the run with a performance at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Ceremony in London.

In the US, the band will co-headline the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival alongside Rob Zombie kicking off in San Bernadino, CA at the San Manuel Amphitheatre on June 29th.

I love FFDP, as long as I don't listen their cheesy lyrics! So radio friendly, so overproduced, but it fit very well for gym. A guilty pleasure in fact.

They lyrics are more catchy than a Britney Spears album or those Disney Sing Along VHS tapes! No offense to FFDP..
