"The Knuckleheads behind Five Finger Death Punch have been incredibly supportive over the years. I look forward to bringing The Kael Army along with me on this adventure as we ride to raise awareness and to raise funds to rid the world of the AIDS virus."
Chris Kael is a bassist for the band Five Finger Death Punch. Originally from Kentucky, Chris Kael moved to Vegas several years ago to pursue the dream of playing music full time. That dream was finally realized in 2011 when he joined Five Finger Death Punch as their new bassist. Three years later in May of 2014, he was voted the Revolver Magazine Golden Gods Paul Gray Best Bassist. Never give up on your dreams - he's living proof that with hard work and a little bit of luck, they can indeed come true.
With Five Finger Death Punch's sixth record entitled "Got Your Six" scheduled for release on September 4th, 2015, Chris will continue impressing ever-growing crowds from stages across all the world. In Chris's own words, "As this Death Punch thing has gotten bigger and bigger, I continue to reflect and to give thanks for both the talent and the opportunities for which I've been given. My mantra is 'Positively Affecting Lives.' Just as I create a rumble around the world with my Spector Chris Kael CK-4 Signature Model bass guitar while touring with Five Finger Death Punch, I look forward to rumbling across the U.S. on my 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide as part of the Kiehl's Liferide for amfAR to raise awareness and funds towards ending the global AIDS epidemic.
