Five Finger Death Punch Video For “The Wrong Side of Heaven” Brings Attention to Military Vets [VIDEO]
Five Finger Death Punch are gearing up for a huge tour with Volbeat, Hellyeah, and Nothing More in September...and on this tour expect to hear a lot from 5FDP regarding the plight of military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and homelessness.
According to their website,
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”. 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 (dates below). 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.
