They found a new home.

Five Finger Death Punch have signed with Rise Records.

Their first album with Rise will be released after they've completed the obligation to their current label, Prospect Park, who recently sued the band for alledgedly "attempting to cash in before the anticipated downfall of their addicted bandmate."

The band released a statement shortly after, saying their frontman Ivan Moody's issues are no secret and "were recently and successfully addressed with the love and support of his family and bandmates in a rehabilitation facility."

"[The lawsuit] is the latest in a long line of exploitative and abusive bullying tactics used by our former manager and current label CEO Jeff Kwatinetz to extract money from and wield power against the band," they continued.

FFDP are, however, excited for the future. “We are looking forward to the next phase of our recording career," 
says guitarist Zoltan Bathory.

"We have had great success with our current label, Prospect Park, and will continue to enjoy further success with our next and final album (subject to surmounting the label’s court action to prevent us from recording it), after which we will commence a new and exciting label partnership with the people at Rise and BMG."

The band released their latest album 'Got Your Six' last year and are set to play Reading & Leeds Festival this summer.
