A video of Five Finger Death Punch inviting a fan to play guitar on stage at their Rochester Blue Arena in New York has been shared online.

The fan, named TJ, reportedly held up a sign requesting to perform Under And Over It with the band – and they granted his wish. Watch the clip below.

It’s not the first time Five Finger Death Punch have got the crowd involved in their antics. They recently staged their own mannequin challenge featuring 10,000 people at one of their shows.

Guitarist Jason Hook reported in August that the band are halfway through the follow-up to 2015’s Got Your Six. It will be their last record with Prospect Park after their public falling out with the label, who claimed that Five Finger Death Punch were trying to cash in on singer Ivan Moody’s substance abuse problems. The group strongly denied the accusations.

Hook said of the upcoming record: “We’re probably about half done. We’re workaholics, we went right back in the studio. Every time we talk about taking a break it just doesn’t feel right. Sitting around it just feels like we could be doing something.

“We’re always concerned that we might lose momentum or that people will stop caring. I think we’re overachievers by nature.”

Five Finger Death Punch have a string of tour dates scheduled throughout the rest of 2016. They’ll also appear at Download 2017 in June.
