FOZZY's Bus 'Trashed' In Road Accident; Denmark Show Canceled

FOZZY frontman and WWE wrestling superstar Chris Jericho has issued the following update in a series of messages of his Twitter profile:

"Last night as I was riding on the ANTHRAX bus, FOZZY's bus was in an accident. The band is OK, thank God, but the bus is trashed [see photo below] so we won't be able to play the show [at Voxhall in rhus] Denmark tonight [Tuesday, July 12]. Hamburg is still on for tomorrow. It's a miracle nobody got hurt, as the bus skidded on two wheels for 50 feet and the side door was completely torn off. Say a prayer for the boys and stay tuned for more info."

FOZZY released the "Remains Alive & Chasing The Grail" two-CD set on July 1 via Edel's international rock label earMUSIC.

FOZZY was already on the map as the band with the pro wrestler singer, but "Chasing The Grail" broke them as a proper band. It hit #6 on the U.S. Heatseekers charts and the single "Martyr No More" was a theme song for the WWE Royal Rumble. "Remains Alive" is a 2005 live album (recorded in Australia) that was previously available in digital format only.

FOZZY's latest album, "Chasing The Grail", sold around 2,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 6 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
