FOZZY TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR
No matter what people say, bigger is always better – especially when we're talking heavy metal. And heavy metal doesn't get much bigger than Fozzy.
The band is the brainchild of Rich Ward and Chris Jericho, two larger-than-life, trailblazing personalities that have spent the past decade shaping their own brand of sonic splendor, Ward's incendiary guitars forging a path for Jericho's inimitable vocals atop a rhythmic foundation of earth-rattling proportions.
Not that anybody should be surprised. Ward is one of metal's pioneers – the mastermind of Stuck Mojo, he soldered metal with rhythmic rap vocals long before it became fashionable, touring the world with some of metal's biggest bands and being hailed as one of both Pantera legend Dimebag Darrell and BLS/Ozzy axeman Zakk Wylde's favorite guitarists. And frontmen don't come more dynamic than Chris Jericho, one of pro wrestling's biggest superstars, the embodiment of charisma, and the byproduct of lifetime spent immersed in heavy metal.
Enter Chasing the Grail. Released in 2010, the band's fourth studio album debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseeker's chart and shows just how much musical ground Fozzy have conquered since the release of their first single in 2000, a faithful cover of the Krokus classic "Eat the Rich." The latest recordings are Fozzy in their full metal glory, 12 tracks (including radio hits "Martyr No More" and "Broken Soul") of the most powerful music North America has to offer, capturing the band's powerhouse fusion of genres - power metal roots bleeding with progressive style and a classic feel.
Look no further than "Let the Madness Begin," which was the most-downloaded single on Amazon from Feb. 22 – March 10, 2010. The track has helped drive Fozzy to new heights in the metal world, where they appeared alongside metal's Big 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – at the Knebworth Sonisphere festival July 10, 2011, and were awarded a marquee, show-opening performance at the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods Awards, where Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl called them to the stage, and where Jericho remained to host the night's festivities.
Fozzy have emerged as a worldwide force on the touring circuit, conquering stages from Los Angeles to Lichtenvoorde, and everywhere in between. And after their successful string of dates on the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR festival, their live assault has been captured on new release Remains Alive and issued throughout Europe in July 2011 by earMUSIC. The 2-disc collector's package includes an Australian headlining concert recorded in 2005, as well as Chasing the Grail as a bonus disc.
Having spent the past decade sharing Jericho's attention with his iconic professional wrestling career, the band is now the subject of the six-time WWE wrestling champion's undivided focus, even earning the spotlight in Undisputed, his second New York Times best-selling book, and first to crack the Top 10, peaking at No. 8.
Jericho and Ward have combined to sell more than 1.2 million records in their heralded careers , but those numbers are a fraction of the audience Fozzy were introduced to when their frontman made the Top 6 as a contestant on season 10 of Dancing with the Stars – one of the biggest television shows in the world.
Fozzy conquered prime time – now it's time to conquer the world of heavy metal.
