Five Finger Death Punch has announced a suicide prevention initiative promoting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. In cooperation with the Lifeline, the band has filmed a public service announcement, which will be placed on all broadcast, cable and web outlets interested in supporting the initiative.

In addition, Five Finger Death Punch has independently filmed a visually arresting video that accompanies the single release of "Coming Down," which will premiere on VEVO on June 12 at 9:00AM Pacific. The final screen of the music video offers a call to action in sharing, "Don’t ignore the chance to get help for you or someone you know who might be in crisis. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline now at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory shares, "Through support and awareness, suicide can be prevented. Five Finger Death Punch is promoting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to build awareness that there is support out there for those in need through the Lifeline's service, and others. This is an important initiative we have taken on to place it on the consciousness of the public that you are not alone when in need." Dr. John Draper, Director of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline offers, " By sharing the message with their fans that suicide is preventable, the members of Five Finger Death Punch will undoubtedly save lives. We are thrilled that they are helping get the word out about this valuable 24/7 service.” The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is administered by Link2Health Solutions Inc., a wholly owned affiliate of the Mental Health Association of New York City.

The Metal Hammer Trespass America Festival has pledged $1.00 for every ticket sold this summer to provide for its network of crisis call centers . The 31-date tour, headlined by Five Finger Death Punch, will also feature Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, God Forbid, and Battlecross. The complete itinerary follows below.

5FDP's current single, "Coming Down," recently debuted as the #1 rated track at Active Rock Rate-the-Music, and is on pace to be the band's tenth straight Top Ten single at Active Rock Radio going back to "The Bleeding" in the spring of 2008. Five Finger Death Punch are one of the most heavily played bands at rock radio, as "Never Enough," "Stranger Than Fiction," "Hard To See," "Walk Away," "Bad Company," "Far From Home," "Under And Over It," and most recently "Remember Everything," has become an anthem in its own right. The band's current album, American Capitalist, continues to sell extremely well with 396,125 copies sold since its debut at #3 on the Billboard charts October 11th. The imminent certification of the band's third record to hit RIAA-Certified Gold status over the last two years, and cumulative track downloads exceeding one million sold, displays that there are few in rock more relevant than Five Finger Death Punch over the last several years.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is an asset for the general public that also provides a special service for veterans and members of the military. When calling 800-273-TALK (8255) the individual dialing will be linked to the nearest of over 150 local crisis centers across the country to speak with a trained crisis worker. The caller may "press 1" if he/she is a veteran, military service member or concerned about one, which will route the call to the confidential national Veterans Crisis Line. Earlier this year, the band returned from a visit to military bases across Kuwait, where they touched down for performances and or visits on bases that included Camp Moreell, Camp Beuhring, Camp Patriot and others. This was 5FDP's second visit overseas to perform for the troops in two years . At the time, singer Ivan Moody shared, "What a stellar way to start the spring. Playing for the troops is always an honor and seriously humbling. Can't say enough about the experience- everyone was so respectful and warm. I hope we helped morale and it was a privilege to give back to those that give so much for us."
