Wrong Side of Heaven” Video Premiere + A Very Important Campaign…

wrong side of heavenGlobal rock heavyweights FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH have enjoyed tremendous support from their military fans over the years and have decided to give back to veterans and those suffering from PTSD with the video to “Wrong Side Of Heaven” which exclusively premiered on VEVO.

The video, written by the band and directed by Nick Peterson is intended to increase knowledge about the plight of veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its larger repercussions for our country by way of affecting their mental and physical health, family life, assimilation back home after service and garnering quality job placement, among many other issues.

5FDP have partnered with a multitude of national and local veterans and PTSD help organizations, contact info for which runs at the end of the video for “Wrong Side Of Heaven” and is also available at www.5fdp4Vets.com. The band created this website to provide a destination with more info on veterans affected by PTSD, the issues they’re facing and also to host a video-call-to-action to their fans asking them to send in their fallen loved ones’ dog tags to create a memorial wall to commemorate them. The memorial will travel with the band across North America to be the backdrop of the show on their upcoming arena fall tour. Post-tour, the dog tag memorial wall will ultimately find a permanent home in a museum to honor the fallen heroes who gave their life while serving our country.

5FDP have also designed a special, limited edition “No One Gets Left Behind” jersey which will be available exclusively via an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to benefit the various help organizations mentioned at the end of the video. For more info on the memorial wall, mailing address for dog tags and how to participate in the campaign for the jersey, go to: www.5fdp4Vets.com

Coinciding with the launch of the new video to “Wrong Side Of Heaven”, members of the group visited Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday to meet with 400 Airmen for a signing, video screening and to talk about the campaign. Those affected by PTSD, both directly and indirectly, are encouraged to share their stories online using the hashtag #5FDP4VETS
