Five Finger Death Punch have resolved their eighteen month legal battle with longtime record company, Prospect Park, and former manager Jeff Kwatinetz. It was earlier last year when Prospect Park sued the band accusing that they were cashing in by releasing a substandard album to get out of their deal. FFDP countersued and the saga halted the group from releasing new music.
Earlier this past summer, drummer Jeremy Spencer told Kerrang! that they completed a new album months ago. Variety reports that the Vegas metallers and label have both announced the release of a greatest hits album with two new songs to be released in December and a release of a new LP will follow next year. That means that it’s going to be probably at least 2019 before the band’s first album on Rise Records is released.
The group gave Variety the following statement:
“The band and the label are excited to announce the release of a greatest hits album with two new songs in December 2017 and the release of a new record next year. The band is very proud of the new record and looks forward to releasing it and playing for its fans.”
