Five Finger Death Punch has teamed up with Brian May of Queen. Along with them, also joined hands with two of the biggest names in country and blues rock, Brantley Gilbert and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Their aim is to record a special version of the song “Blue On Black” mixed by Kevin Churko. Taking country rock to the next level, “Blue On Black” is out today worldwide.
Titans in each of their respective genres, the artists came together to merge country and mainstream rock to re-create the classic song. It was originally recorded and co-written by Shepherd. The artists also premiered an official music video for “Blue On Black” showing the creation of the song.
The artists are donating all proceeds from the collaboration version of “Blue On Black” to the Gary Sinise Foundation. This NGO honors America’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.
