Five Finger Death Punch unveil Sham Pain video

Five Finger Death Punch have premiered the new video for the song “Sham Pain,” off their forthcoming new album AND JUSTICE FOR NONE, due out Friday, May 18. “’Sham Pain’ is a lyrical snapshot of probably the most chaotic, yet the biggest year of our career,” says guitarist ZOLTAN BATHORY. “So far, we’ve come out of every bear attack relatively un-scraped, and the band is tighter than ever. Life is not so difficult if you don’t take yourself sooo seriously. As long as you can find the humor in everything you are winning and the winning is strong with this video, as it follows the footsteps of our NOscar winning masterpiece ‘Jekyll and Hyde.’ It was a simple process: We lit the set on fire and then made our poor director Rob Anderson’s artistic sense into a piñata. Whatever he could salvage became the music video.”
Watch the video for “Sham Pain” HERE.
With their customary airtight riffs, muscular grooves and seismic melodies, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH maintain their signature intensity, all while pushing themselves into new territories on AND JUSTICE FOR NONE. AND JUSTICE FOR NONE marks the multi-platinum hard rock band’s seventh studio album and is available for physical and digital pre-order HERE.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH (L-R): Chris Kael (bass), Jason Hook (guitar), Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums).

For AND JUSTICE FOR NONE, the quintet–Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar), and Chris Kael (bass)–hunkered down in their home base of Las Vegas with longtime producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed) behind the board a year after the release of Got Your Six. In the studio, the group collectively stepped up their game as a unit. “We just understand each other so well,” says Jeremy Spencer. “There’s a huge level of respect on both sides. He gets the best out of us.”
Released on April 20, “Sham Pain” reached the #2 slot on iTunes’ Metal Songs chart and debutedTop 10 on the U.S. Rock Song Chart. To date, the song has received over 2 million streams in its first two weeks of release. The song is currently charting at #35 on the Active Rock airplay chart, a full week ahead of its official add date. “Gone Away,” the band’s previous single (and cover of The Offspring’s 1997 hit single) continues to chart at #5 on Active Rock radio. “Gone Away” has received over 30 million streams in the U.S. and has sold over 100,000 downloads.
