FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and BREAKING BENJAMIN have released separate video teasers for a summer 2018 U.S. co-headlining tour that will also feature NOTHING MORE and BAD WOLVES. The official announcement, including exact cities and dates, is expected later this month.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's greatest-hits collection, "A Decade Of Destruction", was released on December 1. The set includes two new songs, "Trouble" and a cover of THE OFFSPRING's "Gone Away".
The hits collection and an already completed new studio album are part of a deal to settle a legal dispute and close out the band's contract with Prospect Park.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's seventh full-length LP, which was finished more thana year ago, will follow up 2015's "Got Your Six" and will be released in the spring.
BREAKING BENJAMIN's sixth studio album, "Ember", will be released on April 13 via Hollywood Records.
Produced by BREAKING BENJAMIN, "Ember" is the follow-up to the band's 2015 release "Dark Before Dawn", which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart and spun off three No. 1 rock radio tracks, "Failure" (2015's most played Active Rock track), "Angels Fall" and "Never Again". The first single from "Ember", "Red Cold River", was released on January 5 and the accompanying video has nearly four million views.
NOTHING MORE was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including "Best Rock Song" and "Best Rock Performance" for its single "Go To War", as well as "Best Rock Album" for "The Stories We Tell Ourselves" (out now on Better Noise Records), which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart.
BAD WOLVES, which is managed by Zoltan Bathory of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, consists of of vocalist Tommy Vext (ex-DIVINE HERESY, SNOT), drummer John Boecklin (ex-DEVILDRIVER), guitarist Doc Coyle (VAGUS NERVE, ex-GOD FORBID), guitarist Chris Cain (BURY YOUR DEAD) and bassist Kyle Konkiel (ex-IN THIS MOMENT).
BAD WOLVES' debut album will be released in the spring on Eleven Seven Music.
