Five Finger Death Punch announces deluxe edition of 'Afterlife'

Five Finger Death Punch announced today the release of a deluxe edition of their ninth studio album, 'Afterlife' which will be released on February 9 via Better Noise Music. The deluxe version will include the original 12 tracks with producer Kevin Churko, plus four bonus tracks: three acoustic versions of album songs 'The End', 'Judgement Day' and 'Thanks For Asking' plus a new song, 'This Is The Way', featuring the late rapper DMX.

You can now listen to the acoustic version of 'Judgement Day', below.

“Music is meant to be shared and it starts with us, the artists. We've always embraced mixing genres, whether it's the remake of LL Cool J's “Mama Said Knock You Out” featuring guest Tech N9ne or our collaboration with blues warrior Kenny Wayne Shepherd, country star Brantley Gilbert and Brian May, the legendary Queen guitarist in the song “Blue on Black.” The idea of collaborating with DMX had been in discussion for years, and it was a long and winding road to making this particular item on our wish list a reality. He was a lyrical warrior, a true original artist who said what he thought in an incorruptible way. I always saw DMX as “the metalhead of hip-hop” because of his aggressive, raw and untamed style. He growled and growled, aiming to make noise in some cages, an attitude we shared, as Five Finger Death Punch has always been drawn to the bold and real. It made all the sense in the world, but today this is more than just a song; “It is a salute to a legend, a way to honor the memory of DMX,” says Zoltan Bathory about the unreleased song.
