The creative juices are flowing as bands are stuck at home, as the pandemic has put a pause on touring. Some bands are using the time to be very proactive, like Five Finger Death Punch, who have a lot of dishes cooking in the oven.
Zoltan Bathory spoke to Metal Hammer and checked in with an update on all things Death Punch, and there is a lot, but one thing in his statement particularly stood out to me:
“We just built a Death Punch app, which is in the final testing phase, we’re working on video treatments for the next couple of singles and working on a Five Finger Death Punch movie.
“I’m also designing props for whenever we can tour again, designing new Death Punch merch, new signature guitars, training Jiu-Jitsu and renovating a castle which is a fun side-project.
“And besides navigating the Five Finger Death Punch battleship, I also co-manage Bad Wolves and Fire From The Gods, so I’m pretty busy. Oh, and the Illuminati won’t run itself either, so…”
Wait, a FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH MOVIE?!?
It's unclear if we're talking a straight up concert film, a straight up narrative, or a blend of the two, like Metallica's Through The Never was. My guess is it would be the latter.
What would the plot of a Five Finger Death Punch movie even be?
In related news, the band just released a new lyric video for "This Is War" from their recent release, F8.
