Las Vegas hard-rock juggernaut Five Finger Death Punch have just announced their new full-length, F8, with a heavy-hitting new single “Inside Out.”

Their eighth LP, the follow-up to 2018’s And Justice For None, is scheduled for release on February 28th via Better Noise Music. Fans who pre-order F8 digitally will receive an instant download of “Inside Out,” along with two other as-yet-unspecified new tracks before the record’s February street date. Watch the lyric video for “Inside Out” below.

“We had an extremely successful, yet tumultuous couple of years as a band,” says guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “We didn’t just weather the storm but came out on the other side better than ever. It was a focused sober group recording, our most important album to date and without a question it shows. This album represents rebirth, progression, transcendence both personally and musically.”

Vocalist Ivan Moody adds, “This record to me is ‘absolution’ — everything I’ve done in my life has led up to this moment.”

Moody elaborated on the very personal issues that made their way onto F8 in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, saying, “It’s about alcoholism. It’s about my family leaving. It’s about my bandmates. It’s about looking at myself in the fucking face and saying, ‘Dude, you’re going to have to do this because nobody else is coming.'”

“This album has not been fucking easy to make,” he continued. “There was always somebody fucking quitting. Somebody wants to fire another guy, somebody’s unhappy with someone’s lifestyle. These things happen on a daily basis.”

Five Finger Death Punch (who are currently touring U.S. arenas before heading to Europe after the holidays for an arena run with Megadeth) have also announced that they will kick off the second leg of their U.S. arena headline tour in April 2020, with support from Papa Roach, I Prevail, and Ice Nine Kills.
