Five Finger Death Punch have gone hard over the pandemic – releasing F8 back in February 2020 (our review here) and following it up with new album Afterlife in August this year. With millions upon millions of streams, an ever-growing fanbase, a bloody significant role/cameo in the feature film The Retaliators and intense returning touring, there’s nothing getting in their way.
