Fans of the hard rock powerhouse known as Five Finger Death Punch will have a lot to celebrate this holiday season, as the band announced on Friday the upcoming release of their first-ever greatest hits compilation on Dec. 1. Titled A Decade of Destruction, the 16-track album will include some of the biggest songs from the Los Angeles’ band’s recorded catalog, including “Wrong Side of Heaven,” “Jekyll And Hyde” and “Bad Company” just to name a few.
The Dec. 1 arrival of their well-deserved compilation LP will cap off what has indeed been a very successful first 10 years for the hard rock band. Since their debut album in The Way of the Fist was released back in July of 2007, five of their six total studio albums have landed in the top 10 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album sales chart. Their popularity and fantastic live show have also helped their last four albums reach the top three on the Billboard 200, which is almost unheard of success in the world of hard rock these days.
A Decade of Destruction will also help the band pick up some momentum heading into 2018, as they’ll also be releasing their seventh full-length studio album sometime in the spring. The upcoming studio project is currently untitled and doesn't have a specific release date at the moment, but according to guitarist Jason Hook, it's definitely one that fans should be excited over.
"Everybody that's heard the record so far thinks it's our best record. I'm super excited about it,” Hook said in an interview over the summer about their follow up to 2015’s Got Your Six. “There's some really cool, different things on there that are slightly different for us. There's certainly a chunk of what you would expect from [us], but there's some solid songs that are slightly outside of our regular box. But everyone thinks it's a smash."
The band will also include a pair of new songs on A Decade of Destruction, with “Gone Away” and “Trouble.” The official lyric video for the latter track was also shared on Friday and can be watched above.
The band is currently prepping for a European and U.K. tour, which starts in about a week and a half on Nov. 9 in Moscow and will keep them on the road until the end of the year. Tickets for select shows on the upcoming two-month overseas tour are on sale now and can be purchased by clicking here.
