FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has released a live performance music video for the band's new single, "Wash It All Away", which reached the Top 10 at rock radio just last week. The track is taken from the band's new album, "Got Your Six", and the clip was shot by legendary video director Wayne Isham, who has been behind the camera for videos from METALLICA, GODSMACK, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, PANTERA and many other top-shelf heavy rock acts.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory said: "There is a reason why Wayne Isham is a legendary video director. I think he was the perfect choice to capture the band's live show and the energy that connects us to our fans. That energy is the reason why this band is still getting bigger and bigger. Something is simply infectious about what leads up to and what happens at our shows and we wanted to create a time capsule of that for ourselves and for the fans."

The clip was filmed at the band's recent headlining show at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut and showcases their highly visual stage show.

Bathory told The Pulse Of Radio that "Wash It All Away" is a perfect example of what FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH strives for with its songs. "You know that we work with a formula, but there's a formula as in what connects to people, you know," he said. "People care about songs. They care about things that they can connect to. They care about lyrically and both musically something that will touch them, move them. That's the reason for music to exist in the first place, you know, it has to be something that changes your mood. So that's always the approach, and this particular song is, I think, one of the strongest on the record."

"Got Your Six" entered the Billboard 200 album chart at No. 2, selling 119,000 copies in its first week of release. This was the band's third straight No. 2 debut, following both volumes of "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell" in 2013. "Got Your Six", however, did rack up the band's best single sales week ever, surpassing the 112,000 copies sold of "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell, Volume 1", in its first week.

Each of FIVE FINGER's previous albums has been certified gold in the U.S. for sales of 500,000 copies or more.
