According to TribLocal.com, Jeremy Spencer, the drummer of the Las Vegas-based metal band FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, spent a couple hours last week in the suburban area of Mt. Prospect, Illinois filming a commercial for Paiste drum symbols and making a cameo in a video titled "The Christmas Special" with Bobby Watson, a Chicago-based actor and personal friend of Spencer's. Both videos premiered on the Internet this past week (see below) and were well received by fans of Spencer and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH as well as those who've been followers of Watson's acting prospects in Chicago.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH fans are able to get the brand new cover art for the band's current album, "American Capitalist". It features an illustration of the group's ubiquitous "mascot," Knucklehead, over the backdrop of Times Square in New York City.
The new Knucklehead illustration only replaces the regular edition album version of "American Capitalist", while the deluxe edition artwork remains the same.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH recently released the second single from "American Capitalist", "Remember Everything", which is rapidly shooting up the Active Rock chart.
"American Capitalist" debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling 91,000 copies in its first week of release. Both the chart and sales numbers were career highs for the group.
