Fozzy Debuts New “Painless” Video

Band Preps for their ‘Judas Rising Tour’ Kicking off February 28, 2018

With Fozzy set to hit the road next month for their Judas Rising Tour, the active rock band led by Chris Jericho have released the music video for “Painless” the latest single from their Judas album (Century Media). The video originally premiered via Loudwire.com yesterday (1/29).  The track follows the band’s “Judas” single, a top 5 hit at active rock radio with more than 14 million YouTube views.

“We are so excited to introduce the new video for ‘Painless‘ to the world TODAY!” Chris Jericho says.  “In essence, it’s a sequel to the ‘Judas’ video and continues the story of the two different dimensions converging. Plus it’s got blazing fires, hot chicks AND a pillow fight…what more could you ask for in a rock vid?? Check it out NOW!”

Judas, Fozzy’s seventh album–was released last October and named one of the top 25 albums of 2017 by Loudwire, who noted the band has continued “honing their craft and steadily improving. Judas is their most polished and fully realized album, and should be their most successful, as well.”

Next up, Fozzy will launch their 25-date Judas Rising Tour February 28 in New Orleans, LA.  The headlining trek will take the band (Chris Jericho: vocals, Rich Ward: guitars, vocals, Frank Fontsere: drums, Billy Grey: guitars and Paul DiLeo: bass) from east to west, including stops in Los Angeles on March 10 and New York City on April 5, before bringing them back across the country through the spring. Special guests Through FireSanta Cruz, and Dark Sky Choir will round out the bill for the night of rock.

In their more than 20-year career, Fozzy has always been about hard work, dedication and delivering great rock ‘n’ roll to their devoted fans worldwide; reminding them that music is all about invoking dirty, sweaty jubilation and doing it loudly!  However, calling them just “entertainers” would be abridging their talent as Ward is one of the most versatile, underrated riffers in rock ‘n’ roll and Jericho’s vocal range and passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to excel in pretty much everything he does. Throw in the powerhouse rock-solid drumming of Fontsere, the blazing leads of Grey and the genius and energy of returning bassist DiLeo and it’s no surprise that Fozzy has skyrocketed into becoming one of the hottest rock acts in years.
