Quite the milestone, don't you think?



Five Finger Death Punch's 2015 album 'Got Your Six' has been certified Silver in the UK. 

That's the equivalent of shifting 60,000 copies, which is no small feat. 

It's the third record from the band that has hit the milestone, with both '09's 'War Is The Answer' and '13's 'The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The - Vol 1' both receiving the award in 2018. 

The album also peaked at No.06 in the UK Albums Chart on release. That's the highest charting record from the band to date, closely followed by this year's 'F8' which peaked at No.07.

Here's 'Ain't My Last Dance':



We spoke to guitarist Zoltan Bathory all about 'F8'. You can read the full thing HERE, but here's a little snippet:

What do you feel like ‘F8’ represents both for Five Finger Death Punch but also for you as an individual?
“It seems as though the album is doing exactly what it’s supposed to be doing - people are actually understanding what this album is. For me, I feel like it’s a milestone. It’s the monolith that stands out in the middle of our career as probably the most important record, or what will be the most important record, we’ve ever made. I think that’s because of a couple of things. This is our eighth record, and for any band to do eight records is huge. Especially considering this is our eighth in 13 years, that’s a lot of touring and recording and touring and recording. We work hard. This band didn’t get to where we are because we did things by half. We’ve worked our fucking asses off. It’s not some major label puppet bullshit. This is a real band with real problems that we hid from the world as much as we could. But we became an arena-headlining band even with all of the crazy shit happening around us."

"So two years ago things escalated to a different level. We were on tour with Sixx:AM, Nicki Sixx’s side-project, and Nikki came over to us and said, ‘I don’t know what to say. I’ve done a bunch of dumb shit in my life, I’ve died twice, but you guys need to slow down’. From Jonathan Davis to Rob Halford, everybody had the same conversation with our band. So two years ago was when we hit the wall. Ivan had to stop and go to rehab. Everybody set about getting sober. So with that, this record is the first record where everybody is focused and completely sober and wanting to prove a point.”
