FOZZY frontman Chris Jericho (of WWE wrestling fame) has posted the following update on the band's official web site:
"Well, the year of the FOZZ is kickin into high gear and there's tons of news to tell ya about.
"First off, the shows in Omaha and at the Jersey Metalfest in Irvington were both awesome! Omaha featured the appearance of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bubba Dudley, Randy Orton and Mark Jindrak...the idea of giggin' right after 'Raw' was a great one and you never know who could show up! As a result of that success, we are workin' on doing shows in Chicago, Peoria, Calgary and Edmonton after WWE events.
"The Metalfest was fun and FOZZY stole the show as always! We played with TESTAMENT, RAVEN, PRONG, SYMPHONY X, NASTY SAVAGE and SEVEN WITCHES and we rocked. The setlist was as follows...
01. To Kill A Stranger
02. Eat The Rich
03. Crucify Yourself
04. With The Fire
05. Don't You Wish You Were Me
06. Feel The Burn
07. Freewheel Burning
"The new album is coming along great as the drums, guitars and bass are all almost finished with producer Rick Beato doing a magnificent job. The album is going to be titled 'All That Remains' and should be released in August. It's going to be absolutely the best thing we've ever done....I'm so excited for you to hear the all original FOZZY!!
"It was great having the 'With The Fire' video played three times last week on 'IMX' on Fuse TV and on 'Headbanger's Ball' on both MTV2 and MTV. It gave us more incentive to do another video for the new record when the time is right!
"Last but not least, the [energy drink] YJ Stacker commercials featuring FOZZY have started airing this week on 'Raw' and 'Smackdown'. There are 3 different versions featuring an updated version of 'Don't You Wish' and they're very cool...make sure to check it out and pick up 'WWE Originals' if you don't have the track!"
