FOZZY have announced that their seventh studio album Judas will arrive on October 13th 2017 via Century Media.
FOZZY have already experienced incredible success with the “Judas” single. The official music video has accumulated almost 9 million views in just a few months, and the song hit No. 1 on iTunes charts in eight countries.
Vocalist and WWE Superstar Chris Jericho went to bat for the single, eventually convincing Century Media to release “Judas” as the new album’s flagship cut.
Chris Jericho shared his thoughts on the new album and the writing process, “after the huge success of the Do You Wanna Start A War record and the tour that followed that saw us share the stage with such incredible bands as Kiss, Slash & Myles Kennedy, Buck Cherry and Theory Of A Deadman, we decided to take 2016 off to recharge and write songs. But now WE’RE BACK with our best album EEEVVVEEERRR and are so excited to destroy stages all across the globe again! There is nothing like playing FOZZY rock n roll to our amazing friends worldwide and watching you guys smile, laugh and have a blast…after all, isn’t that what rock n roll is all about? We believe that there are only three things you can count on in life: death, taxes and the fact that if you come to a FOZZY show, you are GOING to have a great time!! That’s the FOZZY money back guarantee…”
The last time Australian’s got to saw Fozzy was at Soundwave 2013 and shortly after as a support act on Steel Panther’s tour, however, Fozzy has plans to return to Australian sooner rather than later.
“We’ve been there I think four or five times now with Fozzy but we haven’t been there since the Do You Want To Start A War Record came out which is 2014. I remember we listened to the demos for Do You Want To Start A War Record in our hotel room on that tour with Steel Panther so we got to make it back there. That’s one of our goals and I know there’s a lot of people waiting to see us and we are super excited about Australia. One of our favorite countries to tour in, Foztralia, Fozzy in Aussie has to happen again. So we’re looking forward to doing that on this tour cycle. Hopefully in 2018 for sure,” says Chris Jericho.
