Five Finger Death Punch to Host 2nd Annual "Love Songs for Tough Guys" Syndicated Radio Special This Valentine's Day

"Metalist" Turns Medalist: 5FDP Guitarist Zoltan Bathory Wins Silver Medal at Pro World Trials Jiu-Jitsu Tournament

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) -  This Valentine's Day weekend, metal stalwarts Five Finger Death Punch will host their 2nd annual Valentine's Day Radio Program, "Love Songs for Tough Guys." 

The Valentine's Day Special, which will feature music from Stone Sour, Deftones, Ozzy Osbourne and more, was aired last year on over 45 stations nationally. This year's brand new special is expected to surpass last year's number.

"We're very excited to once again present this unique program from one of Rock's brightest artists," said FMQB VP/Operations Michael Parrish. "Love Songs For Tough Guys is now a benchmark event for many of our affiliates that we look forward to providing annually."

Be sure to check your local listings to see when and where "Love Songs for Tough Guys" will air in your town this Valentine's Day.

HEAVY "MEDAL"
Speaking of Love and Tough Guys -- 5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory happened to dish out some tough love recently at the Abu Dhabi Pro World Trials Jiu-Jitsu Championship by winning the Silver Medal in his division. Zoltan has already won Metal Hammer's prestigious Golden God "Best Shredder" Award, but it seems he's taken shredding over to the mats, collecting some more shiny hardware as the member of the overall champion team "Team Mica" (Training under Professor Don Charley and Mica Cipili).

Ironically, even though Zoltan took home the Silver, he doesn't have to wait long for some Gold: both of the band's albums, The Way of the Fist and War Is The Answer are about to be certified RIAA Gold Records. 

5FDP have sold over a million albums worldwide since debuting in 2007. Their latest single, "Far From Home," is currently in the Top Five at Active Rock radio -- the fourth Top Ten single from their current album, War Is The Answer. 5FDP have been a main stage artist on some of the biggest festivals worldwide, including the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, Download Festival at Donington Park, UK and many more. They have won three Golden Gods Awards; Metal Hammer called their last album "a colossal beast of hard rock brilliance." 5FDP are currently writing and preparing to enter the studio for their third record for Prospect Park.
