5FDP won’t reveal album title

Five Finger Death Punch have already chosen the title of their next album – but guitarist Jason Hook refuses to reveal it.

Instead, he’s offered a few of the joke names they’ve considered while working on the follow-up to 2013 twin releases The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell.

Hook tells Blairing Out: “I have all these funny things I’m dying to say. We’ve always thought about joke titles, like Five Finger Death Punch – Keep Your Receipt. Or, Not Our Best Work.”

The joke extends to song titles, because the band aim to complete the music before frontman Ivan Moody writes words.

“Ivan’s sketching lyrics,” says Hook. “But until they come together we name them anything, just so we can refer to it. So there’s one I just finished called Pulled Pork. By the time it gets to radio it will not be Pulled Pork.”

The guitarist won’t even confirm the album’s completion date. “We have a deadline and it’s going to be tight,” he says. “But you know what? Deadlines make for a focused work.”

5FDP’s Zoltan Bathoy issued a studio update earlier this week – and warned fans to beware of fake Moody social media accounts.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
