Wrong Side of Heaven is a single by American heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch from their fourth studio album, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1, the fourth studio album. It is the third single from the album, and is the nineteenth single overall from the band, which was released on August 11, 2014.[2][3]

Background[edit]

To add to the contributions made by the band through their numerous military concerts, the ensemble wanted to create a music video in order to assist vagrant veterans of the armed forces by publicly portraying the consequences of post-traumatic stress disorder on wounded warriors. Additionally, the group created a "No One Gets Left Behind" jersey to be funded via an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to assist the organizations mentioned in the video.[4] They also requested that the family and friends of deceased military veterans provide dog tags to assist in the preparation of a memorial wall[disambiguation needed] to accompany the band in late 2014. It is proposed that the wall eventually will be placed in a museum to honor those who served.

Release[edit]

The video, directed by Nick Peterson, increases visibility on the suffering of vagrant veterans of the armed forces and the consequences of post-traumatic stress disorder.[5]
