Fozzy, ‘Judas’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Watch closely! Fozzy deliver an electrifying performance with a little something extra for the eyes in their video for "Judas" that is exclusively premiering right here at Loudwire.
While singer Chris Jericho is definitely engaging as a frontman, it's worth your while to pay attention to what's going on in the background. Alongside the high energy performance by the band, viewers will spot an array of unexpected "guests" making their way into frame.
"For such a dark and sexy song like 'Judas,' we wanted a dark and sexy video to match," explains Jericho. "We got that and more! In one take we filmed a unique, visually stunning masterpiece that combines an incredible song, psycho clowns, hot chicks, a man on fire and a great rock 'n' roll band, all in one tasty video morsel. What more could you want ... a giant rabbit holding balloons? Oh yeah, we've got that, too!"
"Judas" is the first new music from Fozzy since the band's 2014 Do You Wanna Start a War album. The band is working on new music with an album tentatively expected in September via Century Media.
Excited about the new song, Fozzy are embarking on the "Judas Rising" tour this month, with dates carrying over into June. Kyng and Sons of Texas will be joining in on the run. See all of the scheduled stops below and get ticketing information here.
Speaking about the band's upcoming dates, which will be their first shows in over a year, singer Chris Jericho stated, "I'm so excited to get back on the lighted stage with Fozzy after taking all of 2016 off! The Judas Rising Tour sees a new Fozzy with new music and a killer new stage show, but with the same energy and party vibe that we've been bringing to our fans since day one! Come rock with us, drink a beer and show your boobs ... whether you're a girl or a guy! Fozzy is back ... don'tcha dare miss us!"
