Ivan & 5FDP have sold nearly a million copies, yet he’s still angry. Must be his shirt.
“Under and Over It” is the debut single from 5FDP’s upcoming third album, American Capitalist, which hits stores on October 11th, 2011. American Capitalist was recorded at “The Hideout” in Las Vegas, NV with producer Kevin Churko. The single art, posted above, was revealed with Hard Drive Radio and Revolver Magazine on July 13th.
“This record crystallizes the sound of Death Punch," says guitarist Zoltan Bathory.
Singer Ivan Moody adds, "I literally laid every ounce of blood I had on this one. We are a people’s band. Our fans understand us because of who we are. We’ve never tried to be anybody else but Five Finger Death Punch. If you’re inclined to please the whole world, you’ve got to take a step back and realize that at the end of the day, you have to be you- first and foremost. Otherwise, you’re useless to anyone else."
