FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH  Exclusively Launch Official Video for “My Nemesis”  Via VEVO’s Metal Monday

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has partnered with VEVO to exclusively debut the much-anticipated official music video for their new single “My Nemesis.” The video concept was conceived by the band and realized by renowned director Nick Peterson who previously directed the band’s award winning videos for “Coming Down” (2012) and “Wrong Side Of Heaven” (2014). “My Nemesis” is the third single from the band’s current album, Got Your Six and has already climbed to Top 20 on the Active Rock radio chart.

The clip’s multi-faceted storyline explores the hard and painful choices everyone has to face one time or another in life. The video is focused around the pain and grief involved in overcoming and moving on from emotionally entangled difficult situations - following various scenarios from teenage runaways to drug abuse and domestic violence. Peterson powerfully depicts this impactful message on film, similar to the band’s “Wrong Side of Heaven” video in 2014. That clip was intended to increase knowledge about the plight of veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the crowd-funding campaign to support the cause raised over $ 225,000 at the time, www.5fdp4Vets.com
 
Zoltan Bathory (guitars) states: “In life everyone has a nemesis… it can be anything…  a self defeating thinking pattern, a bad habit, an addiction, an adversary… something or someone that puts you in an impossible scenario, where you are presented with a fork in the road. Sometimes there is no other choice but making a hard choice. You can give up and just suffer the situation, or you can use your pain to overcome it, as pain is truly the wind in the sails of change. We wanted to present a story about moving on, a story that probes and questions compassion and loyalty. Those are beautiful notions, but remember you have to be loyal and fair to yourself as well, so will you sacrifice yourself for another or will you live with the guilt that you didn't.”
 
In support of the video and the song’s message of overcoming our struggles, 5FDP is encouraging fans to share their own “Nemesis” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by completing the phrase – "#MyNemesis is ________ and I will #OVERCOME” -  Search the hashtag, comment and support your fellow 5FDP fans.  
 
Everyone has a story, so share YOURS. Share your experience and the way you overcame and dealt with a seemingly impossible situation.  Share it if you are currently in it and trying to find your way out. You are not alone. We all have a Nemesis. Tell your story on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and hashtag #MyNemesis and #Overcome
