FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will join multi-Platinum act DISTURBED on tour starting late April. Along with the Disturbed dates,
there will be several special headlining club shows and radio festivals starting April 18th in Sayreville, NJ.

FFDP released their acclaimed album, THE WAY OF THE FIST, late last year and hit the road to headline the Guitar Hero II stage on the 2007 FAMILY VALUES TOUR. FFDP followed Family Values by joining Korn and HellYeah last fall, as well as FFDP’s first headlining club tour. The Spring tour dates with Disturbed will be a precursor to the ROCKSTAR ENERGY MAYHEM TOUR, which kicks off later this summer with Disturbed, Slipknot, Mastadon, Dragonforce and many others.

“The Bleeding,” Rate The Music’s #1 testing song in the country for the 4th week in a row, has climbed the Active Rock Charts, arriving at #8 this week. The track is the only one from a brand new band in the Top 10 and has been for 5 weeks. The video for the single, directed by Bradley Scott, can be seen on the band’s Myspace at www.myspace.com/ffdp. The video for “The Bleeding” was one of Headbangers Ball’s Top 20 videos of 2007, as voted on by the viewers. The band remains in the Top New Artist Charts at #6 this week and have sold nearly 100,000 records to date.

I think this set of tours will be what pushes these guys over the top. I first heard their stuff on myspace early last year. They have a really nice blend of old school shredding and hard core break downs in terms of guitar. The vocal range displayed is quite impressive as well. They should match up pretty well with Disturbed.
