Trespass America Invades Brick City
Inaugural Metal Festival Making Only NY Metro Area Appearance At Prudential Center
Newark, NJ - Introducing Trespass America, a newly minted music festival set on revitalizing the metal scene with some of the most current and credible bands in hard rock/metal: Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, God Forbid, Battlecross and a special guest! A co-production with Trespass America and Metal Hammer, the biggest metal magazine in the U.K., the tour hits Prudential Center in Newark on Saturday, August 18 at 5 p.m. The festival's stop at the Rock marks their only appearance in the New York Metro area.
With their third album, American Capitalist [Prospect Park], Five Finger Death Punch-Ivan Moody [Vocals], Zoltan Bathory [Guitar], Jason Hook [Guitar], Jeremy Spencer [Drums], and Chris Kael [Bass]-morph into the melodic heavy metal machine that they've been moving towards since their 2007 debut, The Way of the Fist. Not only is their sound bigger; it's better. Not only has the music become more intricate; it's become more infectious. Not only are they more direct; they're more dangerous. Evolution gave birth to American Capitalist. Since their formation in 2006, Five Finger Death Punch continue to progress in the face of all odds and opposition. Along the way, they've amassed a diehard, devout fan base fondly referred to as ''Knuckleheads.''
