The new Five Finger Death Punch album "American Capitalist" entered at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 in early October and has already sold over 165,000 copies in just a few weeks. Now, less than two months after the release of the record the band has got some more news.

Starting this Tuesday, November 22nd, fans will be able to get the brand new cover art for 5FDP’s current album. It features an illustration of the band’s ubiquitous “mascot,” Knucklehead over the backdrop of Time Square in New York City.

“We are the people’s band, and a lot of fans really liked this alternative artwork we had on the tour posters. So many times we heard, 'THAT should be the album cover' – so we figured we’d make it happen,” explains guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “If you like the original cover, that’s cool too - I guess the original will be somewhat of a limited item from now on, so there you go.”

The new Knucklehead illustration will only be replacing the regular edition album version of "American Capitalist," while the deluxe edition artwork will remain the same.
