Five Finger Death Punch records Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s ‘Blue On Black’ with Queen’s Brian May and others
Five Finger Death Punch has teamed up with Brian May of Queen, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and country artist, Brantley Gilbert to record a special version of Shepherd’s song, “Blue On Black.”
Along with recording the song, they’ve released a behind the scenes video. All proceeds will go to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which honors America’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need. Five Finger Death Punch’s guitarist Zoltan Bathory states: “To raise awareness for and support first responders is a cause that’s always been close to our hearts. These brave men and women leave their homes every morning not knowing if they’ll ever see their families again. Yet they make a conscious choice to do so for the greater good.”
Just last month, Five Finger Death Punch celebrated their seventh #1 single at rock radio with “When The Seasons Change,” a song from their 2018 album And Justice For None.

- Quote from Kenny Wayne Shepherd: “When Five Finger Death Punch approached me about teaming up with them to do a special version of ‘Blue On Black’, I was thrilled to do it. When they told me Brantley Gilbert and Brian May were also going to be part of it, I was honored. This is a powerful collaboration of rock, country and blues artists and a true testament to the commonalities these musical styles share, and I think the fans will appreciate and enjoy it as much as we do.”
- The music video for their song “When The Seasons Change” is dedicated to police officers and first responders.
