FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH bassist Chris Kael said in a new interview with Uproxx that he has high hopes for the band’s newly released album, “Got Your Six”, and that topping The Billboard 200 chart is one of the group’s goals. Kael explained, “We’ve had two Billboard No. 2 albums and I think a No. 3, as well, so with ‘Got Your Six’, I really want to call the Knuckleheads (hardcore fans of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH) to arms! Let’s get this thing to No. 1.”
Kael added: “We’re very fortunate that, at a time when people aren’t buying as many records as they used to back in the day, we still have a very supportive fan base hitting iTunes or buying physical copies of our music in record stores, and I fully expect that we’re going to come out swinging and join our brothers in DISTURBED with a No. 1 album as well.”
Hook told The Pulse Of Radio that all of the members of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH are driven to succeed. “We’re kind of overachievers by nature,” he said. “We can’t sit still. I think we have a problem. Even when we have time off, there’s no time off. We’re just doing stuff all the time, and so I think that’s one of the things I really love about this band is that we’re just motivated to keep grinding and it’s not work, it’s just kind of what you do.”
