Five Finger Death Punch recently released their fourth single, “I Apologize,” from their #1 album Got Your Six. The song is rapidly climbing the Rock charts while the video is nearing four million views after only a short amount of time. The chilling clip follows Ivan Moody through a cemetery housing our era’s most notable deceased rock icons, ranging from Elvis to Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse to Jimi Hendrix. It was shot at Los Angeles’ famed Angelus Rosedale Cemetery with Nathan Cox directing the band-conceived storyline. Watch the video here. Five Finger Death Punch are currently in the studio recording the follow up album to Got Your Six which will be released sometime in 2017. 

Shinedown’s latest single “Asking For It” – the third off of the multiplatinum rock band’s current album Threat To Survival– made its premiere with an electrifying performance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”  The track follows back-to-back #1 singles “Cut The Cord” and “State Of My Head,” and is currently top 3 at Rock radio, looking to build upon the band’s record-setting tally of 20 chart-topping singles.  Showing their lighter side, the band released a humorous, tongue-in-cheek video for “Asking For It” in both long-form and as a radio edit version.  You can see both at Shinedown’s official YouTube channel – www.youtube.com/shinedown. Shinedown is currently in the midst of headlining the 6th annual Carnival of Madness tour.  The band plans to release their fourth single, “How Did You Love,” next month.

Five Finger Death Punch’s highly acclaimed sixth album, Got Your Six, hit new sales heights for the band around the world with its September 2015 debut. In the U.S., it debuted at #1 on Top Album chart, #1 on the Overall Digital Album chart, and #1 on the Hard Music Album chart, as well as at #2 on the Billboard Top 200, and sold 115K in the first week of release. This was the first #1 Album for the Las Vegas hard-rockers. Impressive international chart numbers rolled in from Australia and Canada (#3), Germany and Sweden (#5), and the UK (#6), to name a few. Five Finger Death Punch have grown exponentially in just a few years, racking up 16 consecutive top 10 hits, five #1 hits, six gold and one  platinum album. With the release of 2013’s The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 1 and Volume 2, the band created continuous new content with which they outsold the majority of bands in their genre, selling 2 million albums over the past three years in North America alone. The band is currently taking Got Your Six around the world touring throughout 2017. For more info visit: www.fivefingerdeathpunch.com. Prior to joining the U.S. run, Five Finger Death Punch will embark on their most extensive tour of Canada to date this September, co-headlining Canadian arenas from cost-to-coast with Papa Roach. See all Canadian dates HERE.

Known worldwide for their unparalleled streak of hits, Shinedown is without question one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century. The band’s unmatched ascendancy over multi-format rock radio has seen the band achieve a record setting 20 #1 singles, including back-to-back chart-toppers “Cut The Cord” and “State Of My Head” off of their latest album, “THREAT TO SURVIVAL.”  Released last fall, “THREAT TO SURVIVAL” debuted at #1 on both Billboard’s Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums chart, and #5 overall on the Billboard 200.  Shinedown exploded onto the rock scene with 2003’s RIAA-certified Platinum debut album “LEAVE A WHISPER,” has had every album since - “US AND THEM” (2005), “THE SOUND OF MADNESS” (2008),  “AMARYLLIS” (2012) – score either Gold or Platinum success. Hailed by fans as a fiery and always exciting live act, Shinedown have toured hard throughout their career, including countless headline treks and festival appearances. The band has shared their explosive performances with a national audience through high profile television appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and TODAY, CBS’ The Early Show, and TBS’ Conan, among others. In 2009, Shinedown received an American Music Award nomination for “Best Alternative Rock Band.”  Shinedown is: Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Zach Myers (guitars), and Eric Bass (bass).  For more information, please visit www.shinedown.com.

Says Mike Mascioli, CEO of Mascioli Entertainment: “I will never lose my passion for buying and promoting national tours, especially when bands like Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach stay loyal by sticking with independents like myself. And with the massive success of this same tour in the States and Europe, I'm thrilled to be able to bring them to Canada!" Daniel Glick, Director of Concerts & Events for Evenko adds: “Fans spoke and we listened. We worked really hard with both bands to make this happen. They’ve been on our must-have list for a while now and announcing this tour is very exciting. We look forward to seeing Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach this fall in Canada”. 

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH actively involved the fans by giving them the opportunity to request the tour come to their city via a “demand campaign” housed at http://demand.fivefingerdeathpunch.com/ and http://demand.paparoach.com/
An overwhelming 60,000 Canadian fans responded to the call to action and made their voices heard. 

Zoltan Bathory (guitar) of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH states: “We took this Demand Campaign everywhere. We had huge success with it in the USA, and in Europe it even won the “Arena Tour Of The Year” award… It’s not surprising in a way as it is inclusive of the fans - they vote and we are listening. What a concept, right? Nobody learns from talking, you learn from listening.” 

“When we did this tour last year in the USA, it was truly the Best Tour Ever. We heard from so many of our Canadian fans that really wanted to see this show – so we’re bringing it to them. Really cannot be more excited to go back – even heading east of Quebec. This is one show you won’t wanna miss.” says PAPA ROACH vocalist, Jacoby Shaddix. 

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH AND PAPA ROACH previously co-headlined American and European arenas to great success last Fall and won the prestigious “Arena Tour Of The Year” award from the German Promoters Association. 

Special guests on the tour will be SIXX:A.M., whose single, “Rise” is currently #3 on the Canadian Rock Chart.  Their recent April 29 global release of Prayers For The Damned, Vol. 1, debuted at #1 on the US Independent Album Chart, #2 on the US Rock Albums Chart, #7 on Canada’s Billboard Top 200 Chart, and in the Top 5 Album Chart around the globe. Vocalist James Michael says: "We've been getting tremendous support for our new single “Rise” from the fans and from Canadian radio. We are thrilled to be touring Canada this fall with FFDP and Papa Roach!" 

Support comes from newcomers FROM ASHES TO NEW who will play songs from their debut Better Noise Records release, Day One, including “Through It All” and “Lost And Alone”, to audiences all across Canada.

PAPA ROACH released their 8th studio album F.E.A.R. in January of 2015 which featured the #1 single, “Face Everything And Rise”, and the Top 5 single “Gravity” featuring Maria Brink of In This Moment.  As of June, the band has headed back into the studio to create their 9th studio album, reinvigorated by F.E.A.R.’s success and the incredible tour cycle that followed,  and eager to bring fans more music.  “Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix is the human equivalent of an energy drink.  He is a firecracker who also happens to be keenly self-aware, candid to a near-fault … but he hasn't lost any of the spark that helped propel Papa Roach to multi-platinum status...” says Alternative Press. 2015 marked the 15th Anniversary of Infest the band’s breakthrough album, which has sold over 8 million albums to date. 

SIXX:A.M. is Nikki Sixx, Dj Ashba, and James Michael. Their current album, Prayers For The Damned, Vol. 1, debuted at #1 on the US Independent Album Chart, #2 on the US Rock Albums Chart, #7 on Canada’s Billboard Top 200 Chart, and in the Top 5 Album Chart around the globe. The band has spent most of 2016 on the road playing major U.S. and European festivals during which they initiated a surprise call-to-action for fans to gather somewhere near the venue for an intimate impromptu acoustic set, using the hashtag, #sixxamhitandrun across their social media platforms for location details. Canadian fans can expect the band to continue this tradition on the tour. Go behind the scenes with the band on their most recent “Tale Of Two Cities” HERE!

FROM ASHES TO NEW come fresh off their debut Better Noise Records release, Day One.  Their modern take on alternative music that integrates rapping seamlessly, FROM ASHES TO NEW have been on the road since their inception, traveling with bands including Hollywood Undead, Papa Roach, In This Moment, Five Finger Death Punch, All Time Low, and PVRIS to name a few. Their hit-single, “Through It All”, spent multiple weeks at #1 on Sirius XM Octane, climbed to the Top 10 at Rock Radio, and amassed over 4.5 million individual streams, making them a clear contender in the rock scene today. Prior to this highly-anticipated tour, the band will be bringing Day One to the masses all summer long on Vans Warped Tour 2016, beginning June 24th. Best summarized by Alternative Press, “FROM ASHES TO NEW bring nukes to a genre where everyone is playing with firecrackers.”

Says Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory about the tour: "I wanted to give you a brilliant quote about trying to keep rock music alive by assembling bills that can sell out arenas where everyone can have the production rock shows deserve, or bringing out new talented bands and expose them to huge crowds... or about rebuilding a community with the help of rock radio, and donating to good causes while we are at it… but we are so busy doing it that I ran out of quotes”.

Shinedown has always been about sharing the undeniable power of rock music,” says Shinedown frontman Brent Smith. “And performing live is where we make that connection most directly, where we can truly experience that power together with our fans in its purest form because we are literally sharing the same physical space, living in that moment as one. Five Finger Death Punch shares that passion and commitment, and, like us, leaves it all out on the stage every single night. Come experience the power of rock music with us.” 

 “We are really excited and proud to be part of this tour with FFPD and Shinedown. Having spent many months in the studio recording Prayers for the Damned, it will give us the opportunity to play our new songs and hits in arenas", says bassist Nikki Sixx. "They have been such supporters of new music and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this powerful night of music!” adds vocalist & producer James Michael. "I can’t tell you how excited we are to be sharing the bill with FFDP and Shinedown, this tour is going to be off the f’n chain, can’t wait to see you all out there!” states guitarist Dj Ashba.
 
“This will be the most explosive and dynamic rock tour these cities have ever experienced!” added Frank Productions president Charlie Goldstone.
