While it’s becoming a habit, it’s still an achievement: In a music business that seems to be dominated by free streaming, Five Finger Death Punch has scored its third debut at number two on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart with Got Your Six (or fourth, if you included both volumes of The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell).
Co-written and produced once again by Kevin Churko, Got Your Six eschews the softer side of FFDP as showcased on both parts of the Heaven album, but has the power of the record’s first single, “Jekyll and Hyde,” which is currently at number three on the Active Rock radio charts.
Also, in a nod to the band’s core fans (more affectionately known as Knuckleheads), Heaven, Vol. 1 spiked on the Billboard Album chart the same week as Got Your Six‘s debut entry. Heaven, Vol. 1 has enjoyed over 80 weeks on the sales chart since its release July, 2013.
FFDP are currently on the road with two other Kevin Churko (and Kane Churko) produced acts: Papa Roach and In This Moment.
