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 official video for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s surprising cover of the classic folk song “The House Of The Rising Sun” will make its online debut on Monday, March 24. The song is the next single from the Las Vegas-based band’s recently released album, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2”. The disc came out on November 19, 2013 and is the second half of a two-record set, with “Volume 1” coming out in July 2013.

A teaser for the “gasoline and rocket-fuel-soaked” “The House Of The Rising Sun” video — which was filmed in the desert — can be seen below..

According to The Pulse Of Radio, 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 oldest known existing recording is by Appalachian artists Clarence “Tom” Ashley and Gwen Foster, who recorded it for Vocalion Records in 1934.

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., Sweden, Finland and Canada.

The members of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH discussed in a recently released video clip how they changed up the classic song to give it a hard-rock vibe, most notably, by switching the song’s time signature from 6/8 to 4/4.

“We had the idea to do this for a while,” explained guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “The interesting thing about this song is that [it’s] actually in a time signature of 6/8 which is a waltz… and rock music and waltz doesn’t necessarily mix right.”

He continued: “So basically the challenge was: ‘How do we make this song work? How do we take away that goofy vibe and how do we make it into a rock structure?'”

“The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2” sold 77,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The first half of “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, selling 113,000 copies in its first week of release.

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.”
