LAS VEGAS, NV - AUGUST 11: (L-R) Bassist Chris Kael, drummer Jeremy Spencer, and guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook of Five Finger Death Punch appear at Nellis Air Force Base as the band highlights its campaign to raise awareness about veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), in part by launching the video "Wrong Side of Heaven," that deals with the subject on August 11, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Five Finger Death Punch is giving fans a taste of some new music.

The group has released “Trouble,” which is expected to be one of two new tracks slated for a best-of compilation the group is releasing in April.

The fast-paced track finds frontman Ivan Moody growling that “I don’t look for trouble, trouble looks for me/That’s how it’s always been, that’s how it’s gonna be” — perhaps a reference to his recent substance abuse issues that led to him sitting out live dates during the past year.

No details have been announced yet for the compilation or for a new studio album FFDP is planning to release during 2018, both of which will, as part of an out-of-court settlement, conclude the quintet’s relationship with its current label, Prospect Park Records before the band moves on to Rise Records.

FFDP returns to the road November 16 for a European tour with In Flames that wraps on December 21.
