Led by the inimitable duo of guitarist Rich Ward, co-founder of the influential underground band Stuck Mojo, and vocalist Chris Jericho, famed WWE superstar and media personality, the band Fozzy recently released their new album “ Do You Wanna Start A War.” Their sixth studio effort since 2000, “ Do You Wanna Start A War” is the bands follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 release “ Sin and Bones.” Featuring 12-tracks, the new album includes the debut single “Lights Go Out,” alongside the title track and the return of the Theremin in “Bad Tattoo.”
As described by Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, “ Do You Wanna Start A War” is dark, dense and sharp. Sonically and lyrically, this feels like it's going somewhere big. I love it.”
Andy Biersack of Black Veil Brides calls the album “a full on assault. Excellently crafted songs, screaming guitars and soaring vocals. Fozzy have raised the bar and are ready to usher in a new era in rock and roll”
Over the years, Fozzy has shared the stage with such music luminaries as Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Steel Panther, Shinedown, and many others. The band recently wrapped their spring tour performing across the country winning over thousands of fans at festivals including Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion, and Rockfest before crossing the Atlantic and winding down on the main stage of the Download Festival in the UK.
