Last fall, Trace Davis of Voodoo Amps conducted an interview with guitarist Jason Hook of Las Vegas metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. You can now watch the chat in three parts below.

The second volume of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's two-record set, "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell", sold 77,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week of release to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart. The first volume, which came out in July 2013, also debuted in the same position, although it sold a more substantial 113,000 copies.

Now that they've got a double-record set under their belts, The Pulse Of Radio asked FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH singer Ivan Moody what other goals the band would like to achieve in the future. "We've always said that the sky's the limit," he said. "You know, we've talked about doing everything from a movie, like a concept film, to, you know, toys, I mean lunchboxes, which we just came out with — we've just talked about how to make the band bigger, better. You know, I mean we always really got off on the cool stuff growing up and I think a lot of bands kind of lose sight of that. So we've talked about just trying to do something that we think would be fun or special for our fan base."

The first single from "Volume 2" is "Battle Born", while the set also features a cover of the folk standard "House Of The Rising Sun", made popular by THE ANIMALS in 1964.

"Volume 1" has sold more than 347,000 copies to date. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's three previous albums have all gone gold for sales of 500,000 copies or more.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will next appear on the five-day Shiprocked cruise, scheduled to depart from Miami, Florida on January 26, 2014. The band may also launch a second edition of its Trespass America festival tour, which premiered two years ago, sometime in 2014.
