Fan-filmed video footage of Las Vegas metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH performing their new single, “Battle Born”, live this past Saturday, September 21 in Post Falls, Idaho can be seen below.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has unleashed a game-play video for its new single, “Battle Born”. The action-packed clip, which was created by Machinima director Jackfrags and based on the popular “Battlefield 4” video game, can be seen below.

“The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2”, the second half of a two-record set, is due to arrive on November 19 via via Prospect Park in North America and Eleven Seven in all other territories.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH frontman Ivan Moody explains the meaning behind “Battle Born”: “After getting off the road from two years of touring, I was physically and emotionally drained. It felt like I’d seen almost every inch of the globe and shook every hand there was to shake. I completely lost track of time, the flights, the travel, the shows all seemed to blur together. My family and friends became a distant memory. Even though I was doing what I’d dreamed of doing, it took all the energy that I had… it was exhausting. That made me realize, everything worth fighting for you will actually HAVE TO fight for. Every wish, every dream, every idea comes to existence only through blood, sweat and sacrifice… We are all battle born.”

So, after the overwhelming triumph of Friday and Saturday’s fun if slightly un-Hammery shenanigans (and yes, Eminem did definitely mime), can Sunday continue Reading’s return to form?

There’s a smattering of great heavy bands dotted around the lineup today (plus some awesome electronica if that’s your bag), and Bury Tomorrow do a fine job of opening up the day’s proceedings on the main stage. They’ve been just about everywhere this festival season but this is by some margin their biggest ever UK show, and they do the scale of the occasion justice with a loud, heavy and fucking bouncy set of metalcore anthems. The crowd isn’t perhaps quite as large or as rowdy as we’d have liked to seen, but it’s Sunday, so we’ll let them off this time round.

As Hadouken! bust out the nu rave jams on the main stage, it’s a struggle to get into the Rock/Lock Up tent for Hacktivist, but we barge our way through to find the Milton Keynes quintet in very fine form indeed. Futuristic djenty grooves collide in a network of sociopolitical-fuelled grime to create one hellish bastard of a wrecking ball. Glorious stuff. Soon after, Heaven’s Basement arrive and do plenty more to suggest that they’re the most promising of Britain’s current glut of rock ‘n’ roll bands to garner attention in the last couple of years, although compared to Crossfaith it’s understandably hard for anyone to look impressive. The Japanese rave metallers are typically pummelling, drawing in one of the biggest Lock Up crowds of the weekend and, unsurprisingly, blowing the roof off the place. What a band.

Current rising stars of doom, Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats, are tasked with bringing their dark psychedelia to a criminally thin crowd, but not even that can stop the Cambridge quartet from bludgeoning away with their occult-laced, sinister groove. It’s like watching The Beatles, but if they smoked (more) crack and worshipped Satan. We love it.

Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy bring what just might be the biggest singalongs of the weekend over on the main stage (no mean feet on a bill featuring Green Day and Biffy Clyro), before the evening’s subheadliners arrive in a cloud of controversy. After the massive buzz from last week’s Scala club show in front of 800 incredibly lucky punters, this really should have been business as usual for Nine Inch Nails, but Trent is not a happy man, having taken to Twitter to rant about how his band got “fucked over on production” and that it “should be an unusual show tonight”. And it turns out he wasn’t lying. The industrial gods kick their set off with three new songs, followed by a hazy mist of ambient, more keyboard-led tracks and only a mere handful of hits. The musicianship may be stunning, equally matched by a spectacular light show, but tonight’s set leaves most fans scratching their heads, wondering just what could have been.

All in all, though? It’s a spectacular weekend and a reminder of why Reading and Leeds are far from being written off when it comes to putting together lineups that can appeal to music fans from all walks of life. Bring on 2014.
