By on July 8, 2014

Fozzy has announced their first round of U.S. tour dates as they take to the road with Theory of a Deadman in support of their upcoming new studio album Do You Wanna Start A War (Century Media Records) set for release July 22. The band has confirmed a dozen shows throughout the south, midwest and east coast beginning September 17th in Tempe, AZ, additional dates will be announced. Recently, Fozzy premiered a new lyric video behind their debut single “Lights Go Out” that can now be viewed online. Currently climbing the rock charts at radio, the track will be featured in the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game out later this fall. Additionally, this summer Chris Jericho makes his long awaited return to the ring and WWE with dozens of appearances confirmed beginning July 12th in New York City at Madison Square Garden. A complete list of Fozzy tour dates and WWE appearances are listed below.


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 has really always been about one thing: having fun. Produced by Ward, Do You Wanna Start A War is the bands follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 release Sin and Bones, and sixth studio effort since 2000. 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!”


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.
