Five Finger Death Punch have released a lyric video for their cover of The Offspring’s 1997 track Gone Away.

It’s one of two new songs recorded by the band for their compilation album A Decade of Destruction (opens in new tab), which launched today (December 1) and follows Trouble, which arrived back in October.

It was also recently announced that Five Finger Death Punch would release their as-yet-untitled seventh studio album in May 2018, via Prospect Park in North America and Eleven Seven Music internationally. It’ll be the follow-up to 2015’s Got Your Six.

Speaking about the recording process, guitarist Jason Hook said: “There is a certain part of finishing something new that is going to make you feel like it’s the best. Because it has a freshness to it, so it has an unfair advantage over the other ones.

“But I think that what’s really important is how the public feels about it. I think it’s a great record. Everything that we do, we put a 110% into it.

“We’re very particular about these records because we’re living in an age where people are so quick to consume that they’ll blow through a record and then throw it over their shoulder. So I think these things are forever. They have to be great. They can’t just be good.”

The band are currently on tour across Europe with In Flames and Of Mice & Men. Find a list of their tour dates below.
