I will never forget the first time Five Finger Death Punch was scheduled to play here in the Hub City. The show was scheduled to be held in the Room of Doom at Jake's. The week before the show ticket sales were not looking good.

The day before the show a grand total of three tickets had been sold leading to the show being canceled.

Several months later they decided to give Lubbock a second chance at seeing them live. This time they sold out Tequila Jungle.

Now every time Ivan and the boys come to town they play to sold out or near sold out crowds. Seems like those three who bought tickets to the first show knew something it took the rest of us a little longer to catch on to.

FFDP are currently in the studio working on their latest album which is due out this summer. So far, no word on if they will be hitting the Hub for the Rockstar Energy Tour or not, rumor has it they may be doing some Texas dates in April with Powerman 5000 and Papa Roach.

While you contemplate that, check out this video of Ivan in the studio this week.
