Five Finger Death Punch to release a new song with hip-hop artist DMX and three acoustic songs


Five Finger Death Punch has just unveiled the special digital deluxe edition of their ninth studio masterpiece, ‘AfterLife’. Slated for a digital unveiling on February 9 through Better Noise Music, this expanded version is set to include not only the initial 12 songs, produced in collaboration with the band’s long-standing producer, Kevin Churko, but also four additional tracks. These bonus offerings comprise three acoustic renditions of ‘The End’, ‘Judgement Day’, and ‘Thanks For Asking’ from the album, alongside an entirely new track titled ‘This Is The Way’, which strikingly features the late hip-hop icon DMX. Coinciding with the deluxe edition’s release, February 9, 2024, will also mark the premiere of the much-anticipated official music video for ‘This Is The Way (Featuring DMX)’.

Zoltan Bathory, the celebrated guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch, reflects on ‘This Is The Way (Featuring DMX)’: “Music is a shared journey, beginning with us, the creators. Our history is rich with genre-blending, from reimagining LL Cool J’s ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ with Tech N9ne, to fusing our sound with blues icon Kenny Wayne Shepherd, country sensation Brantley Gilbert, and the iconic QUEEN guitarist Brian May in ‘Blue On Black’.

Bathory continued: “The concept of a DMX collaboration has been a topic of conversation for a considerable time. Transforming this dream into reality was a complex journey. DMX was a force in music, an unapologetic and original voice. His fierce, raw expression made him a kindred spirit to us in the metal world. We’ve always seen him as a ‘metalhead in hip-hop’, with his raw energy and indomitable presence. His collaboration isn’t just a song to us; it’s a tribute, a nod to the enduring legacy of a legend.”

Today’s revelation of ‘AfterLife’s’ digital deluxe version is accompanied by an exclusive preview of the acoustic version of ‘Judgement Day’, now available for streaming.
