Five Finger Death Punch are taking $150,000 worth of funds raised by past touring and their single “Blue on Black” and donating it to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which aids America’s defenders, veterans and first responders during times of need.
Specifically, the money collected came from the band’s 2019 U.S. fall arena tour and proceeds from their hit cover song “Blue on Black,” which featured assists from the track’s originator Kenny Wayne Shepherd, as well as country star Brantley Gilbert and Queen guitar legend Brian May. The video for “Blue on Black” has garnered over 37 million views to date.
Gary Sinise, the actor best known as Lt. Dan from Forrest Gump, as well as the movies Apollo 13, The Green Mile and TV’s CSI: NY, taped a special thank you to Five Finger Death Punch and their collaborators for their donations to his foundation.
