In Flames singer Anders Fridén offers:
“We’ve been lucky to play for so many Jesterheads around the world this year and can’t think of a better way to end 2017 than touring Europe with Five Finger Death Punch. We’ll see you soon Jesterheads and Knuckleheads. It’s going to be a tour to remember.”
5FDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory states:
"We are currently playing all the European festivals and are having an amazing time. As these massive crowds are singing along every word of the lyrics, it feels like Europe is truly becoming the second home of Five Finger Death Punch. We can't wait to come back this autumn and especially with In Flames which is one of my favourite bands. This will be something special to see…”
