Five Finger Death Punch + Papa Roach Reveal Routing for 2015 Tour
As summer turns to fall and shows begin heading indoors, there’s a great package tour that should be considered a “must-see.” Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach will co-headline dates with support from In This Moment and up-and-coming act From Ashes to New. The tour, fueled by Monster Energy, was first teased last month, but Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach reached out to their fans to determine where the demand was greatest through voting to help in making the routing for the trek. Now the dates have been revealed.
Over 1.5 million people voted to have the tour come to their venue and the trek will now start on Sept. 4 in Lexington, Ky. From there, the tour heads north and west, before circling back through the Midwest and wrapping Oct. 9 in Glen Falls, New York.
Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory states, “This tour is shaping up to be the perfect storm. We are really good friends with Papa Roach so for years we’ve been talking about touring together and it’s finally coming together in a big way. Both 5FDP and Papa Roach are bands of the people — our fans are who propelled us to success. So what better way than to give the fans ownership in the tour? In the world of Wikipedia and Kickstarter where crowd funding and crowd sourcing has become the standard of community effort and the new way of making things happen this might quite possibly be the future of touring — you simply ask the fans where they want you to go.”
Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix adds, “We are super excited to be sharing the stage on this co-headliner with FFDP. This will give Papa Roach the chance to put on the best, most epic live show to date. Our fans are going to be so stoked for these shows coming up. We seriously can’t wait to get out on the road for this tour.”
And it should be noted that tickets will be a cost-friendly $40, a solid price for the fans who voted to bring this tour to their town. Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach fans will get the first crack at tickets with a VIP pre-sale starting on Wednesday at 10AM ET. Local venue and radio pre-sales will follow on Thursday at 10AM ET and general public on sales will start Friday and Saturday depending on the location.

Papa Roach are supporting their F.E.A.R. album, which features their current single “Gravity.” The song features a guest appearance by In This Moment’s Maria Brink, and it’s likely you might see a crossover on the upcoming dates. As for In This Moment, Maria Brink and Chris Howorth stated, “We are beyond excited to tour North America with our good friends Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach! Our bands have known each other for a long time and have done various shows and tours together over the years, but we’ve never combined forces like this. It’s big and it’s beautiful, faces will be melted, souls will be crushed–this is definitely a tour not to be missed!” In This Moment are promoting their Black Widow album featuring the current single “Sex Metal Barbie.”
Rounding out the bill are From Ashes to New. Frontman Matt Brandyberry says, “We are beyond ecstatic to be a part of such an amazing lineup. This honestly, is a dream come true for us to be playing with such inspirational artists. We can’t thank everyone enough for believing in us as musicians and giving us the chance to show the world what we are made of!” The group is currently promoting their “Downfall” EP, with a lyric video for the title track expected to premiere later today. A full-length album is expected to follow this summer.
