Fozzy and Jared James Nichols announce U.S. tour dates

Fozzy have announced their Unleashed In The West Tour, which is set to kick off in September. Supporting them throughout the run will be Jared James Nichols. Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho comments:

“When we got the call to join Iron Maiden on their Banc Of California Stadium show in Los Angeles, we knew 2 things were imminent. One, this might be the biggest show Fozzy has ever played. Two, one show isn’t enough. So we decided to head out all across the western US to spread the Fozzpel and celebrate this great time in our lives!

Plus, it gets us out of the studio for a breath of fresh air…it gets a little stuffy in there sometimes when you’re recording a new record! So come ROCK with us and be a part of the most energetic, electric and FUN rock n roll show in the world today. Don’t miss Fozzy Unleashed In the West!!!

Guitarist/vocalist Rich Ward adds:

“It’s been almost 6 months since we wrapped up our amazing 200 city tour in support of the Judas album. Since then we’ve been sequestered to a top secret bunker where we are writing what will become our next record. As much as we love the creative environment of the studio, there is no substitute for loud amps and the unique exchange of energy that only occurs on the big stage. In September we return to that stage, in what will be one of our biggest and boldest tours to date. Grab your helmets and dancing shoes, Fozzy is coming to town!”
