FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH CAMPAIGN FOR VETS RAISES MORE THAN $100K
Five Finger Death Punch unveiled a new video earlier this week for the song "Wrong Side Of Heaven," with the clip shining a spotlight on the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder and the plight of homeless U.S. military veterans. The band also launched a crowdfunding campaign by selling a jersey with the slogan "5FDP4VETS No One Gets Left Behind" on Indiegogo.The goal of raising $50,000 was more than doubled in less than two days, with the campaign raising over $100,000 for organizations supporting veterans suffering from PTSD.
Fans who pledged money will receive a limited-edition jersey created and designed by guitarist Zoltan Bathory.
The initial run of shirts ran out, and the band expanded it by 1,000 in order to keep up with the overwhelming demand.
Five Finger Death Punch also hosted a special screening of the "Wrong Side Of Heaven" video this past Monday (August 11th) at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada for military personnel. The video has gathered over 500,000 views since its premiere online earlier this week.
The band begins its fall tour with Volbeat on September 16th in Salt Lake City.
