Chris Jericho's FOZZY Announce Release Date For 'Sin And Bones', Unveil Cover Artwork & Are Set for First-Ever U.S. Tour!
Internationally-renowned Hard Rock and Metal act FOZZY are proud to announce the August 14 release of 'SIN AND BONES', their highly-anticipated NEW studio album and debut release with Century Media Records. After years of non-stop touring in Europe, the band will embark on the first U.S. tour of their 12-year career, joining fellow heavyweights Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach on this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival.
The brainchild of WWE superstar Chris Jericho and Stuck Mojo mastermind Rich Ward, FOZZY have delivered their hardest-hitting album to date with 'SIN AND BONES'. Frontman Chris Jericho comments, "It's the typical cliché, but 'SIN AND BONES' really is the best thing we've ever done. We've taken the heavy yet ultra-melodic style that has become Fozzy's trademark to the next level and I guarantee these songs will blow all of you away!"
FOZZY just returned from the United Kingdom, where they appeared alongside Metallica and Black Sabbath at the Download Festival, performed at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards - which Chris Jericho hosted - and played sold-out shows with Ugly Kid Joe and Soil.
The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival released the following video including FOZZY and a number of the tour's other acts talking about the upcoming summer run:
