Five Finger Death Punch Is in the Studio Working on New Album for 2015 [Video]

Five Finger Death Punch is already back in the studio, working on the new album, that should be out before the end of the year!

"The Wrong Side of Heaven and Righteous Side of Hell" came out in 2013, but the band has been focused on continuing to write new music and now slow things down.

They're working on the new album now, will either finish it before their April/May tour in the U.S. or they'll go back after and finish it up, to have it out before the end of the year.
