Five Finger Death Punch donates over $150.000 to Gary Sinise Foundation

Five Finger Death Punch has a long history of supporting veteran and first responder organizations and continues to do so during this difficult time. The donation of over $150,000 to the Gary Sinise Foundation consists of a portion of the ticket sales from the band's 2019 U.S. fall arena tour, as well as proceeds from their No. 1 hit single "Blue On Black".

The Gary Sinise Foundation will use the funds to help America's defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.

5FDP's guitarist Zoltan Bathory said: "We were always vocal about where we stand when it comes to veterans or first responders. It has been a decade long effort using our platform to raise awareness, to educate and to keep this conversation on the forefront. During this current pandemic, it's even more pronounced that these men and women deserve respect and all the support they can get. They are essential and do not have the option to isolate and sit out the dangerous times. Not that they would if given the choice, and that's what makes them who they are, and that's why Five Finger Death Punch has got their six. We would also like to thank Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brantley Gilbert, and the living legend Brian May for joining us without a second of hesitation to make these donations possible."

"I would like to extend my gratitude to Five Finger Death Punch for their long-standing commitment to our nation's veterans and first responders,” said Elizabeth Fields, chief operating officer of the Gary Sinise Foundation. "Their support is needed now more than ever, as we at the Gary Sinise Foundation help our first responders, service members, veterans, health care workers, and all of those who so courageously stand on the front lines of this global pandemic."
