Fozzy’s ‘Sin and Bones’ Debuts at #1 on Billboard Heatseekers Chart
Fozzy's highly-anticipated new album, 'Sin and Bones,' has premiered at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and marks the band's best-selling first week ever for an album of original material. Released on August 14, the album also celebrates the band's first appearance on the Billboard Top 200 chart, where it landed at #143.
Ultimate-Guitar.com declares Fozzy as "one of the best metal bands out there right now," Revolver Magazine calls 'Sin and Bones' "Fozzy's best album yet," and Metal Hammer (UK) says, "'Sin and Bones' is impressive, diverse and mature... this is a masterclass that should take Fozzy on to bigger things."
Fozzy is currently out on the first U.S. tour of their 12-year career, joining fellow heavyweights Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach on this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival, where they are headlining the Jagermeister Stage and making daily signings in the Rockstar Energy Drink tent. The band also has in-store appearances in each of their headlining markets. Tour dates for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival and Fozzy headlining shows are listed below.
The first single from 'Sin and Bones,' "Sandpaper," is currently impacting and reacting at Active Rock radio and features guest vocals by M Shadows (listen here: http://youtu.be/G1ltJ60u-w0). The brainchild of WWE superstar Chris Jericho and Stuck Mojo guitar extraordinaire Rich Ward, 'Sin and Bones' is the band's hardest-hitting album to date featuring 10 explosive songs ripe with intensity.
Vocalist Chris Jericho comments, "It's the typical cliché, but 'Sin and Bones' really is the best thing we've ever done. We've taken the heavy yet ultra-melodic style that has become Fozzy's trademark to the next level and I guarantee these songs will blow all of you away!"
