New FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Songs Are 'More Brutal, With More Extreme Dynamics,' Says Drummer

December 7, 2014

In a brand new interview with, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH drummer Jeremy Spencer was asked where he saw the band's sound going next following the release of last year's double album, "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell".

"I'm not sure," he responded. "We always try to do things a little differently than the time before, but without being drastically different. We are who we are and I don't see us doing something so left turn that people are going, What is that? I just don't see that. We sound like what we sound like and I'm excited to see where it goes, honestly."

He continued: "I love making new records, and feeling the energy, seeing how everyone has grown and all that. We do try to push ourselves and experiment a little here and there. We have to keep it fresh for ourselves.

"We started recording [some new material] already and we did a couple tracks so far. After the holiday break we're going back in the studio for the long haul and hopefully have something out by summer. Obviously we'll be touring in the spring, so if we can finish by spring, it would be great but we'd like to get something finished by summer and get something out by the end of the summer if we can."

Regarding what the new FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH songs sound like, Spencer said: "I'm digging it, man. It's actually more brutal, with more extreme dynamics. There are some really mellow parts and then some really brutal parts. So we're running the whole gamut of sounds."

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH released "The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell" in two parts last year, with the first arriving in July 2013 and the second following in November 2013. The first half alone has sold more than 443,000 copies in the U.S.

After a nearly sold-out headline tour in Europe this past spring, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will make its return to the continent as special guests on the European leg of JUDAS PRIEST's "Redeemer Of Souls" 2015 tour next June. The run kicks off in Helsinki, Finland on June 4 and takes the band all across Europe, winding up in Lodz, Poland on June 27, 2015.
