Unlike most Five Finger Death Punch news, there isn't anything to troll about the anti-suicide PSA that the band just put out. I also just read on ThePRP that proceeds from every ticket sold on the upcoming Trespass America Festival will be donated to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. That's pretty legit. That means I can still support the cause, and dip out after Killswitch. You can check out the PSA featuring vocalist Ivan Moody and drummer Jeremy Spencer above.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TRIVIUM, EMMURE, GOD FORBID and more team for Trespass America Festival
It's official. After rumors of such spreading last week, we can confirm that Trespass America is this summer's new big attraction.

A/V Roundup: New Music from Dave Lombardo's PHILM, MARDUK, RWAKE, TRASH TALK/TOUCHE AMORE Project and more
Get over your hump day with some epic new tracks and some killer videos all curated in today's A/V Roundup:
First, let's talk about PHILM, the new project from Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. I've been dying to hear some new music from the band and now we got our first taste, courtesy of Terrorizer magazine and I love it. I love the sound they're going for and how it sounds absolutely nothing like Slayer…
I don't know if I should thank Axl Rosenberg of MetalSucks or be mad at him for exposing me to the trailer for The Devil’s Carnival, a new movie from the director of a bunch of Saw sequels. The movie finds metal luminaries like Clown from Slipknot and Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody as part of this…um…devil's carnival, I guess? The whole time I watched this trailer, I just couldn't believe somebody would fund this drek. If you do happen to be interested in this cinematic masterpiece, get more info here.
One thing can definitely be said about this song: Five Finger Death Punch perform it. Their new album, American Capitalist, comes out October 11th.
Well, this is a great tour if you're a fan of any of these bands. While I'm not exactly going to be at the front of the line for this one, I can see how fans of Five Finger Death Punch, Hatebreed and All That Remains cross over, so it should be a good time for those folks. If you are one of "those folks", then you will be interested in the following tour dates: (more…)
