We wanted to do something impactful to help our veterans in need. With this video and the accompanying campaign we hope to shed more light on the seriousness of their issues. The statistics are shocking, and if any change is to take place it will start with general public awareness. We have been playing numerous military shows but wanted to do more; educate, reach out and donate to the organizations that are making a difference to better the lives of our veterans. --FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH
Global rock heavyweights FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have enjoyed tremendous support from their military fans over the years and have decided to give back to veterans and those suffering from PTSD with the video to Wrong Side Of Heaven which exclusively premiered today globally on VEVO and can be watched here:http://vevo.ly/wM96O1.
The video, written by the band and directed by Nick Peterson is intended to increase knowledge about the plight of veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its larger repercussions for our country by way of affecting their mental and physical health, family life, assimilation back home after service and garnering quality job placement, among many other issues.
Incredibly touching, I watched with a lump in my throat the entire time. Five Finger Death Punchs support of US Troops and Military Veterans never ceases to amaze me.

5FDP have partnered with a multitude of national and local veterans and PTSD help organizations, contact info for which runs at the end of the video for Wrong Side Of Heaven and is also available at www.5fdp4Vets.com. The band created this website to provide a destination with more info on veterans affected by PTSD, the issues theyre facing and also to host a video-call-to-action to their fans asking them to send in their fallen loved ones dog tags to create a memorial wall to commemorate them. The memorial will travel with the band across North America to be the backdrop of the show on their upcoming arena fall tour (dates below). Post-tour, the dog tag memorial wall will ultimately find a permanent home in a museum to honor the fallen heroes who gave their life while serving our country.
5FDP have also designed a special, limited edition No One Gets Left Behind jersey which will be available exclusively via an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to benefit the various help organizations mentioned at the end of the video. For more info on the memorial wall, mailing address for dog tags and how to participate in the campaign for the jersey, go to: www.5fdp4Vets.com
Coinciding with the launch of the new video to Wrong Side Of Heaven, members of the group are visiting Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada today to meet with 400 Airmen for a signing, video screening and to talk about the campaign. Those affected by PTSD, both directly and indirectly, are encouraged to share their stories online using the hashtag #5fdp4Vets.
"The 'Wrong Side Of Heaven' video is very compelling and moving to watch.
It reminds each and every one of us of the sacrifices these men and women have made and the struggles they continue to face every day."

Undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful rock bands globally, 5FDP dominated 2013 with the releases THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL, VOLUME 1 and VOLUME 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 (more notably, within a four-month period) and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the globe. The two albums feature two #1 radio hit singles (Lift Me Up featuring Rob Halford of Judas Priest andBattle Born) and have combined sales of over 650,000 units to date. The multi-million selling rock titans last single, The House Of The Rising Sun was their 13th consecutive top ten hit at Active Rock Radio.
USA TODAY proclaimed VOLUME 2 elevates the group to the top of its game. Offering more than blind rage, though there's certainly plenty, the songs live in the tension implied by the album's title--aware of the implications of lashing out, ready to accept the consequences (11/19/13). Following Australias Soundwave Festival and shows across Japan and South East Asia, the band concluded a sold out European headlining tour earlier this year. FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar) and Chris Kael (bass).
