Five Finger Death Punch were in Glasgow on Thursday to play the O2 Academy. I was gutted to miss this gig as I’m quite a fan of the five-piece and i’ve heard nothing but good things from those who did attend.
They were performing in Glasgow as part of their European tour, which saw them return to the UK after performing here with Avenged Sevenfold last year.
The band released two albums last year, their first new material in three years. The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volumes 1 & 2 are brilliant albums, boasting tracks that are among my personal favourites.
The also released a cover of classic track “House of the Rising Sun” last month and its become one of the highlights of their recent shows. Their intention is to eventually release a feature film, exciting news to their legions of fans across the world.
It was clear the gig was a huge success, with fans flocking to Twitter to share their excitement before, during and after:
My newsfeed on Facebook was also full of people raving about the concert. I’m hoping it’s not too long before their next visit to Glasgow, I won’t be missing it next time!
And finally, here is their rendition of House of the Rising Sun:
