FFDP End Your Wait With ‘Afterlife,’ Announce 2022 Tour Dates

If you, like Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody, “don’t wanna wait,” well you don’t have to any longer. “Afterlife” from the album of the same name is now upon us and you can hear the new single in the player provided below.

It’s the hard-hitting rock radio gem you’d hope for from FFDP, starting with a solitary atmospheric guitar lick, giving way to bullet-like drums and a fleshed out full band assault brimming with energy and a pulsing low end. Within the track, fans will also get a wide range of Ivan Moody vocals, from clean melodic aggression to occasional screaming and some deep baritone spoken vocals.

Five Finger Death Punch have been working with longtime producer Kevin Churko on their follow-up to F8, now confirming that the forthcoming album will carry the title Afterlife. An official release date for the album has not been announced as of yet, but this is the first of two major announcements today leading into the promotion of their forthcoming set.

The other big announcement is that Five Finger Death Punch have lined up a late summer / early fall headline tour with Megadeth, The Hu and Fire From the Gods delivering yet another stellar touring bill for the band. The tour gets underway Aug. 19 in Portland, Oregon, crossing the U.S. and circling back before an Oct. 15 finale in Salt Lake City, Utah. See all of the dates, cities and venues listed below.

Tickets for the run will go on sale this Friday (April 15) at 10AM local time via the Five Finger Death Punch website. It should also be noted that Five Finger Death Punch are also launching an official Five Finger Death Punch Fan Club, with those joining having exclusive first access to pre-sale tickets starting today (April 12) at 10AM local time. The fan club is available as a stand-alone app through the Apple, Android or Google Play stores. Premium members will also receive extra perks throughout the year.

For now, check out the lyrics and the new song “Afterlife” below and if you like what you hear, the song is available via multiple platforms here.

Five Finger Death Punch, “Afterlife” Lyrics

I’ve heard the rumors that the rumors all were true
They may be looking for me but there coming for you
I’ll paint a picture you can better understand
They promise diamonds but they pay in sand

It goes on and on and on and on and on
It’s an old broken record stuck on the same
It goes on and on and on and on and on
You all know it’s wrong but you’re singing along

I don’t want to wait for heaven to change me
I don’t wanna have to wait for the fall
I don’t wanna wait for heaven to change things
I don’t wanna wait I don’t wanna wait

I don’t wanna wait for heaven to change this
I don’t wanna have to fall on the knife
Forever after – this disaster
Bring the AfterLife

You’d cut your nose off just to spite your fuckin face
That’s who you are – you know your place
You let them lead you by the throat with broken hands
So how’s the view beneath their shoe and what’s your plan

It goes on and on and on and on and on
It’s an old broken record stuck on the same
It goes on and on and on and on and on
We all know it’s wrong but we’re singing along

I don’t want to wait for heaven to change me
I don’t wanna have to wait for the fall
I don’t wanna wait for heaven to change things
I don’t wanna wait I don’t wanna wait

I don’t wanna wait for heaven to change this
I don’t wanna have to fall on the knife
Forever after – this disaster
Bring the AfterLife

I don’t wanna wait for heaven to change me
I don’t wanna wait
I don’t wanna wait for heaven
I don’t wanna wait

I don’t wait for heaven to save us
I don’t wanna wait
