A brand new FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH song called “Trouble” has been released via Spotify. The track, which can be streamed below, is one of two new cuts which will be included on the band’s upcoming greatest-hits collection, apparently titled “A Decade Of Destruction” and due in December.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH recently resolved its legal battle with its longtime record company, Prospect Park. As a result, the band and the label have announced the release of the greatest-hits album, with a brand new full-length disc to follow next year. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH already completed its seventh studio effort almost a year ago, but contractual issues with the record company has delayed its arrival.
Guitarist Jason Hook told SpazioRock: “Everybody that’s heard the record so far thinks it’s our best record. I’m super excited about it. I thought we fucking knocked it out of the park. There’s some really cool, different things on there that are slightly different for us. There’s certainly a chunk of what you would expect from FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, but there’s some solid songs that are slightly outside of our regular box. But everyone thinks it’s a smash.”
Prospect Park initially sued FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in 2016 for breach of contract, alleging that the group wanted to rush the recording of a new album. The company claimed that the band’s contract prohibited it from beginning to record a new effort until at least nine months had passed since the release of the previous one.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s last studio effort, “Got Your Six”, came out in September 2015.
The group signed a new North American recording deal with Rise Records last year. They also filed a lawsuit against Prospect Park in April, asking a judge to release them from their contract and order the company to pay over a million dollars in damages.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has also dealt with singer Ivan Moody‘s struggles with substance abuse, which forced him to miss a number of shows last year and this past spring.
