Five Finger Death Punch "Occupy" The Top of the Charts


For Immediate Release
October 19th, 2011

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH “OCCUPY” THE TOP OF THE CHARTS
New Album ‘American Capitalist’ Debuts at #3 on the Billboard Top 200


FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH’s new album, American Capitalist, has charted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, topping new debuts from artists such as Lauren Alaina, Ryan Adams, Martina McBride, Joe Jonas, and more.  The album sold a staggering 90,509 copies in its first week, making it the band’s strongest debut yet.  American Capitalist is an impressive continuance of the band’s success, building upon the already concrete triumph of their last two albums, both of which are RIAA Certified Gold.  American Capitalist also charted at #1 on the Independent Current Albums chart, #3 on the Top Current Albums chart, #2 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart, Current Hard Music Albums chart, Top Hard Music Albums chart, and the Overall Digital Albums chart.  The album also charted at #4 on the Physical Albums chart.

More impressively, American Capitalist is a completely independent release with no major label backing, making a #3 charting position a genuinely amazing achievement.  Prospect Park is a new independent production and management company founded by Jeff Kwatinetz.  Kwatinetz is known for starting former management powerhouse, The Firm, a company once known for managing chart-topping artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Linkin Park, and Snoop Dogg.  Prospect Park’s music division has a stellar track record of tremendous success with acts that not only include 5FDP, but Jane’s Addiction, Ice Cube and Korn, just to name a few.  Prospect Park’s project spectrum is leading them into the world of television in January; the company plans to kick off an internet-based online network beginning with the airing of soap operas, including the classics ‘One Life to Live’ and ‘All My Children’.

Deb Klein, the GM for Prospect Park Label states, “This is our first number 1 on the Billboard chart and it's an incredible testament to the partnership we have with the band and EMI label services. By being independent we are able to take chances and do things quickly and efficiently in this digital age.”

Maria Ferrero, President and CEO of Adrenaline PR adds,“ These days, it makes a  statement for any band to sell more than 90,000 in its first week, but it is a phenomenon for a Heavy Metal band on an independent label to scan more than 90,000 records.”

American Capitalist is now available for purchase everywhere music is sold: Best Buy, Amazon, Newbury Comics, iTunes (Deluxe, Explicit or Edited) and many more.  5FDP just kicked off their headlining Fall trek- the SHARE THE WELT TOUR with All That Remains, Hatebreed, and Rains as support.  Tickets are still on sale to the general public and VIP packages are available at www.ffdptickets.com and www.FIVEFINGERDEATHPUNCH.com now.  All currently booked dates are now available, so see below for all current tour dates.
