Five Finger Death Punch has released a video for its recently released cover of The Offspring's "Gone Away," taken from Five Finger Death Punch's new hits collection, A Decade Of Destruction. The clip serves as a homage to the men and women of the U.S. military, focusing on one man as he and his friend enlist following an attack, with all of them killed in combat and the lone survivor returning home to deal with the guilt and ultimately return to active duty again.
Guitarist Zoltan Bathory stated about the video: "Every song has exactly as many meanings as many people have heard it, but by creating a music video we can crystallize one of the possibilities, our personal interpretation, and share what those words mean to us personally." He added, "'Gone Away' is one of those songs that can hit you in the chest, and our interpretation may surprise some . . . but this is how we heard it."
- Bathory told us a while back that even the word "war" can have different meanings for different people: ["That word, war, can cover a lot of territory, you know what I mean? And it will mean something else to everybody. Somebody can take it politically, somebody can take it in a completely different way. War is just a big word. War is something that will never go away. It's part of us, you know what I mean? We didn't make the rules. Big things eat small things, that's how this world works, you know what I mean?"] SOUNDCUE (:20 OC: . . . what I mean?)
- A Decade Of Destruction also features the new Five Finger Death Punch original tune, "Trouble."
- The hits collection and an already completed new studio album are part of a deal to settle a legal dispute and close out the band's contract with its label, Prospect Park.
- Five Finger Death Punch's seventh full-length LP, which was finished nearly a year ago, will follow up 2015's Got Your Six and will be released in spring 2018.
