Five Finger Death Punch's Zoltan Bathory tells a funny story behind the new single 'Jekyll And Hyde'


Five Finger Death Punch will release the new album "Got Your Six" on August 28 and guitarist Zoltan Bathory talked with Revolver Magazine about the first single "Jekyll And Hyde". Below you can read some excerpts.


Zoltan said: "That one has a funny story. Ivan Moody doesn't sleep at night, so it's pretty often that he'll call one of us at four or five in the morning and leave crazy messages on our phones. And what happened was, Jason Hook was going through his voicemail and found dozens and dozens of these messages from Ivan. So he copied them onto a hard drive and then we pulled out different words and sentences and put them together. And that's the verses of the song. They're taken directly from Jason's phone. It's one of my favorite songs on the record, just because it's so bizarre."

About new album "Got Your Six", Zoltan said: "So far, it's a harder, faster record. We don't have a slow song and I don't think we're gonna write one. So it's just a higher-energy effort. When we started to write this time, everybody was in a really good mood. The band has always been a well-oiled machine, but this is one time where we felt, 'Wow, everyone has grown up in some way as a musician.' We also stopped all the partying and the crazy shit and were really focused and sober. And because of that, this record has been probably the most fun one to make. It also maybe contributed to everything being more up-tempo and energetic."
