Five Finger Death Punch has entered the studio to begin recording its eighth album, due later in the year. The band tweeted a short video on Thursday (May 9th) from the latest studio sessions, along with the following caption: “Day ONE in the studio … What kind of record should we make … Acoustic Death Metal – Polka Djent Fusion – Doom Funk Dubstep … or….. ???” The new disc is once again being helmed by Kevin Churko, the Canadian record producer, engineer and songwriter who currently lives in Las Vegas, where he works out of his private studio, The Hideout Recording Studio. Five Finger Death Punch has yet to announce a permanent replacement for founding drummer Jeremy Spencer, who left the band in December. After sitting out a fall tour last year, Spencer underwent a second back surgery and will need a significant amount of time to recover. The band was joined on the road by drummer Charlie “The Engine” Engen, but it’s not clear if he will stick around.
