Dan Waite, MD Europe, Better Noise Music commented “Looking at the streaming data a month before F8’s release we could see the daily streaming trajectory of Five Finger Death Punch was going to overtake some household rock names. Indeed, since the release of ‘F8’, Five Finger’s daily streams on Spotify have propelled them to bigger daily streams than U2, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Guns N Roses and Foo Fighters. We also analyzed that in a few weeks the daily streams will plateau back down to a higher norm than before release, but this shows the size of the band globally, and why Better Noise Music signed them for Worldwide”.
“Their trump card is an immediacy of songwriting that many of their contemporaries would kill for”

The new album, F8 includes the band’s #1 single “Inside Out”, as well as instant grat tracks “Full Circle” and “Living The Dream”. The standout track for press and fans alike since release has been “A Little Bit Off,” with charts in the US and Canada highlighting the song with #1 debuts.
F8 was produced by Five Finger Death Punch with long time producer KEVIN CHURKO (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Slash, etc). “F8, the group’s eighth, is their most mature offering to date,” Billboard states. “It features singer Ivan Moody chronicling his daunting path to sobriety y over music that traverses a diverse range of styles, from sensitive ballads to balls-out barnstormers.”
