Los Angeles metal band FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH released their debut album, "The Way Of The First" on in July of 2007. The CD hit
stores and the band hit the road to headline the RedOctane “Guitar Hero” second stage of the 2007 FAMILY VALUES TOUR. Later outings with Korn and HellYeah road-tested their lineup for subsequent headlining dates. Seven months later, as the band prepares for the ROCKSTAR MAYHEM TOUR with Slipknot and Disturbed, their record increases in sales by 35% then again by 45% and vaults itself to #144 on the Billboard Top 200.

“The Bleeding,” Rate The Music’s #1 testing song in the country, has climbed the Active Rock Charts, arriving at #9 this week. The track is the only one from a brand new band in the Top 10. The video for the single, directed by Bradley Scott, can be seen on the band’s Myspace age. The video for “The Bleeding” was one of Headbangers Ball’s Top 20
videos of 2007, as voted on by the viewers.

"The Way Of The Fist" was recorded at Next Level Studios by Stevo "Shotgun" Bruno (MOTLEY CRUE, PRONG) and at No Name Studios by Mikey Sarkisyan (SPINESHANK)with mixing and mastering duties being handled by Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY).
