GRAND FORKS — The band Five Finger Death Punch and country music singer-songwriter Brantley Gilbert are teaming up to perform a Dec. 9 show at the Alerus Center, as part of a U.S. fall arena tour.
These artists have joined forces in the past, according to an announcement by the Alerus Center. They brought the worlds of hard rock and country rock together when they partnered on their global No. 1 hit “Blue On Black” in 2019. To date, the collaboration has garnered 110 million YouTube views and 62 Spotify streams.
Five Finger Death Punch, which has amassed 25 Top 10 hit singles and 12 No. 1 singles, has released seven consecutive albums that were certified gold or platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, as well as two chart-topping greatest hits albums. The band has earned numerous national and international awards and honors over the last decade.
For the Dec. 9 performance, the multi-platinum powerhouses will be joined by newcomer Cory Marks.
Five Finger Death Punch recently set the world record for most consecutive Mainstream Rock Airplay No. 1 hits. Their new album, “Afterlife,” will be released Friday, Aug. 19. The single from that album, “Times Like These,” is already quickly climbing the charts.
Brantley Gilbert recently released “Son Of The Dirty South,” featuring Jelly Roll via The Valory Music Co. With back-to-back platinum albums and a grassroots following of millions, Gilbert has inspired die-hard fans to join “BG Nation,” a legion of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping and twang go hand-in-hand-in-hand.
Gilbert, a Georgia native who has accrued seven No. 1 hits, won the American Music Award for Favorite Country Album with his landmark record “Just As I Am” in 2014. His hits include the County Music Association’s Awards Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem” and RIAA five-time platinum-certified “Bottoms Up."
Cory Marks, who mixes country music’s storytelling tradition with loud heavy rock, has released a debut album, “Outlaws and Outsiders.” The album, which features country music icon Travis Tritt, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch, and Mick Mars of Motley Crue, was a global hit, going Gold in Canada and receiving 87.8 million streams worldwide.
