Shinedown and Five Finger Death Punch pair up for May

There are bands we like to follow around and photograph in different cities, states, and many time with our staff being national continents. To give different views, catch up on the latest news, and show our support.

Last night we were in Salem, Virginia to catch Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown, not long after we saw FFDP in Florida at Welcome to Rockville and then Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte, NC last week. What can we say, we love shows!

FFDP and Shinedown paired up for a co-headlining tour all throughout the month of May, each supporting their latest albums. Shinedown dropped their sixth studio album earlier this month, entitled Attention Attention. The concept album juggles topics of personal loss and emotional construction.

Their first single, “Devil”, is still climbing the rock charts and finding a place in their setlists this go around.

Ohio’s up-and-coming rock act Starset warmed up the crowd with an eclectic setlist of singles from their two albums, Transmissions and Vessels. Though they’re still supporting Vessels and have no musical debuts on the horizon, Starset put on a show that will make you want to devour their discography in one sitting; it’s probably best they’ve only got two albums out right now. Their blend of rock, metal, and something you can’t quite put your finger on is the perfect way to kick off a Shinedown/FFDP extravaganza.

As for FFDP, third time’s a charm. In the past couple of weeks we have rocked out with Five Finger Death Punch at Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion and last night at Salem Civic Center.

Their new album And Justice for None, due out May,18th. The first two singles out from the album so far are “SHAM PAIN” and “When The Seasons Change”, both earning spots in the live set.

You’ve still got time to catch the three band bill throughout the mid-West and into the West coast through May, but don’t take your time grabbing tickets. The shows are bound to sell out, and this is not an experience that’s promised to return! Grab tickets here!
