Five Finger Death Punch's The Wrong Side of Heaven tour makes a stop in the Tri-Cities Sept. 20 at Toyota Center in Kennewick.

The tour celebrates the global success of the heavy metal band's hit album The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, volume one.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $35. Also appearing with Five Finger Death Punch will be Gemini Syndrome, Escape the Fate and Miss May I.

The second installment of The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell will be released in November.

Frontman Ivan Moody told to fans on the band's website that the album's success came about on the heels of the group's prior hit album, Battleborn, and explained the meaning behind the title.

"After getting off the road from two years of touring I was physically and emotionally drained," he said. "It felt like I'd seen almost every inch of the globe and shook every hand there was to shake. I completely lost track of time, the flights, the travel, the shows, (they) all seemed to blur together.

"My family and friends became a distant memory. Even though I was doing what I'd dreamed of doing, it took all the energy I had ... it was exhausting. That made me realize, everything worth fighting for you actually have to fight for. Every wish, every dream, every idea comes to existence, only through blood, sweat and sacrifice. We are all battle born."

Five Finger Death Punch is made up of Moody on lead vocals, Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook on guitars, Jeremy Spencer on drums and Chris Kael on bass.
