Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory has confirmed a new album is currently being worked on, stating “there’s definitely a new record coming”.

In a recent interview at Belgium’s Graspop Metal Meeting, he addressed questions regarding the follow-up to their 2022 album “AfterLife”. When asked if the band is currently working on new material, Bathory confirmed (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET)

We are working. So there’s definitely a new record coming, hopefully next year. We’ll see when, but we’ve been working on some stuff. There’s always things in the vault — we’re always doing something. And when it’s not time yet, then we just put it in the vault.

Five Five Death Punch Album Album Writing Process

Bathory elaborated on the band’s approach to producing new albums, stating:

I do believe that we have to record an album every two years, maybe three at the most. Because we are in a fast lane. Every band is in a fast lane. Time changes, [and it’s] very different for us. And so I feel like every two years is about the time when we are kind of different people. A lot happens to a band in two years. And so every record is a snapshot. And I feel like you have to — if you wanna follow a band, it’s like it’s about the right time. Every two, three years, you put out a record and people can follow where you are. If it’s a longer period, I’m not sure that they can, because in three, four, five years, a lot changes.

Discussing the relevance of their music, Bathory added…

For us, another thing is that everything that we write about is either socially, politically or personally relevant. We’re not writing about historical events. So that means that whatever we’re working on has to be relevant right now. And the world, obviously, like we all know, changes in six months. It’s a different world, right? So that’s another reason that we work that way, that we kind of take snapshots of the world and where we are in the world every two years.

In other news, Five Finger Death Punch has announced a headlining U.S. tour this summer, with support from Marilyn Manson and Slaughter to Prevail. The tour will begin on August 2 in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and conclude on September 19 in Houston, Texas.

Before their U.S. tour, Five Finger Death Punch is set to tour Europe as the supporting act for Metallica on their “M72” world tour. Additionally, they will headline shows with special guest Ice Nine Kills and make select appearances at major festivals.

The band continues to promote their ninth album, “AfterLife”, released in August 2022 via Better Noise. On April 5, they released the digital deluxe edition of “AfterLife”, which includes the original 12 tracks produced by Kevin Churko, along with four bonus tracks: three acoustic versions of “The End”, “Judgement Day”, and “Thanks For Asking”, and a new song, “This Is The Way”, featuring the late rapper DMX.
