Las Vegas metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have uploaded pre-show backstage footage from their March 19 concert at Komplex Klub in Zurich, Switzerland. Check out the two-and-a-half-minute clip below.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will release the official music video for its cover of the classic folk song “The House Of The Rising Sun” on Monday (March 24). The track is the next single from the band’s latest album, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2”. The disc came out last November and is the second half of a two-record set, with “Volume 1” coming out last July.

The band has posted a teaser for what it described as the “gasoline and rocket-fuel-soaked” video, which was filmed in the desert. A Facebook post said that the video “was an experiment, the initial steps toward something we always wanted to do… make a full-length movie.”

Although the song is thought to be about a life gone bad due to alcohol, gambling or prostitution, FIVE FINGER frontman Ivan Moody told The Pulse Of Radio his spin on it. “For me, it’s in relation to being on the road, you know, year in and year out,” he said. “You know, with my history and my family and whatnot, it’s just, it’s really relatable for me and I don’t necessarily think it’s bleak. I think there’s a positive side to it. But people will take out of it what they want.”

The original author of “The House Of The Rising Sun” is unknown and the song’s roots may date back to the 16th century.

The most successful commercial version was recorded by the English rock group THE ANIMALS in 1964, which was a No. 1 hit in the U.K., the U.S. and Canada.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is currently on the road overseas, but will be back home in late April to play at several major rock festivals.

The governor of Jakarta, Indonesia, Joko Widodo, attended the concert in the city — 25 years to the day after the release of the band’s fourth album, “…And Justice For All”, and more than 20 years after their tumultuous first show in Indonesia.

“I am happy and satisfied with the concert,” Widodo said after the show. “No one got out of control. We showed them that Jakarta citizens are all dignified. We could rock the night away in an orderly fashion.”

60,000 Indonesian metal fans attended the concert, where more than 2,000 security personnel were deployed.

METALLICA‘s last show in Indonesia took place in 1993 — at the peak of the band’s commercial popularity while they were on the road supporting the mega-selling “black” album. One of the biggest shows that Indonesia had ever hosted, it ended with a riot that saw angry fans — many of whom were trying to get into the concert for free — burning cars and destroying public property, as well as sustaining countless physical injuries while fighting with the police.

Back in May, Widodo had to turn over his autographed METALLICA bass guitar to the government temporarily, while authorities determined whether the instrument was merely a gift or a violation of ethics rules. Widodo received the bass from METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, but had to give it up to the state within 30 days, according to laws regarding gifts to state officials.
