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 surveys its career to this point with today’s (December 1) release of A Decade Of Destruction, a best-of compilation that features one new song, “Trouble,” and a version of the Offspring‘s “Gone Away.”

The album is part of a contractual agreement with FFDP’s current label, Prospect Park, and guitarist Jason Hook tells us it shows how much quality product the group has put out since its first album was released a decade ago:

“I think we’re kind of over-achievers by nature. 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…That’s one of the things I really love about this band is we’re just motivated to keep grinding and it’s not work. It’s just what we do.”

FFDP plans to release a new studio album — its first since 2015’s Got Your Six — during 2018 to fulfill it’s contract with Prospect Park before moving to Rise Records.

FFDP is currently on tour in Europe.
