Five Finger Death Punch (opens in new tab) have announced a US headline arena tour for later this year.

The run of 28 shows will kick off with two nights at The Joint At Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on November 1 and 2, and they'll bring the curtain down with a performance at the Wells Fargo Center in Des Moines on December 15.

Five Finger Death Punch will be joined on the road by special guests Three Days Grace, Bad Wolves and Fire From The Gods.

Guitarist Zoltan Bathory says: “People always say, ‘rock will never die,’ but for that to be actually true it’s important to have successful breakout bands that create a healthy scene – a scene that can sustain everything from arena headliners to the experimental and the underground. 

“We always understood this so we have been actively curating and giving a platform to bands we think are great and have a chance to make it to the next level – so we took out Nothing More who got two number one hits and got nominated for multiple Grammys.

“Then From Ashes To New, who ended up landing several top 10 singles. Next, we introduced Bad Wolves who are now doing amazing and have three, no.1 hit singles.”

He adds: “On this upcoming tour we are bringing Fire From The Gods who we think will be another important band for the future of this genre. 

“As for Five Finger Death Punch, the band is better than ever, firing on all cylinders so we are really looking forward to this tour and our next chapter.”

Five Finger Death Punch have also announced that a portion of every ticket sold will be donated to The Gary Sinise Foundation (opens in new tab).

Tickets will go on general sale on July 26.

Earlier this week, frontman Ivan Moody said he hoped Five Finger Death Punch could release their new album in early 2020, but cautioned that they wouldn’t be rushed (opens in new tab).
