FOZZY - Spotlight

FOZZY - Spotlight

International rock powerhouse FOZZY--led by multi-hyphenated media superstar CHRIS JERICHO and acclaimed guitar guru RICH WARD--is excited to announce the release of their new single, “Spotlight”! Living up to their unabashed and uncaged reputation, FOZZY continues to push the boundaries both sonically and artistically on "Spotlight”, out NOW via Madison Records / The Orchard.

"'Spotlight' was produced with precision by JOHNNY ANDREWS (THREE DAYS GRACE, ALL THAT REMAINS, HALESTORM) and sonically refined by mixer JACOB HANSON (VOLBEAT, AMARANTHE, ARCH ENEMY). The track demonstrates FOZZY'S evolving sound, melding rock and metal with powerful emotion and musical might, epitomizing FOZZY'S commitment to rock superiority. With 'Spotlight', Fozzy once again impresses, building on their hit 'I Still Burn', as this anthem shines, embodying FOZZY'S distinctive flair and energetic riffs."

“On the heels of our fifth consecutive top ten hit “I Still Burn”, our new song 'Spotlight' pushes the boundaries of FOZZY'S sound while still retaining the punch and maximum riffage you’ve come to expect! And with the FOZZY mindset of the triple hook rule, I still can’t stop humming the damn thing after dozens of listens!! This is going to be the perfect tune to sing along to live and in your car for a long time to come! It’s Time to turn on the SPOTLIGHT!” - CHRIS JERICHO

“Spotlight" is another explosive anthem of sweaty, hook-laden Active Rock, featuring the commanding yet melodic vocals of CHRIS JERICHO and the iconic signature riffs of maven guitarist RICH WARD.

On October 26, the band will be premiering the official music video for “Spotlight”. FOZZY never falls short in creating innovative imaginative videos, and "Spotlight" is no exception in the Fozzy Universe. The Video features Chris Jericho in another ground breaking setting, orchestrating hundreds of drones that lit up the night sky to co-star in this first ever Drone Show music video.

With the superstar showmanship of front man CHRIS JERICHO tag-teamed with guitar genius RICH WARD, FOZZY’s live shows deliver a truly rock n roll experience - a sonic assault of headbanging riffs, intense high energy, and, most importantly, amazing songs. The backbone of their sound comes from the killer combination of GRANT BROOKS on drums, bassist PJ FARLEYand BILLY GREY leading the charge on guitar shredding solos. These five seasoned pros light up every stage they play on with their electricity and charisma, making FOZZY one of the hottest rock acts in the world today.

Having paid their dues with endless touring of their earlier albums, sharing the stage with a pantheon of rock icons such as METALLICA, KISS, and IRON MAIDEN. it was the release of JUDAS that elevated the band into the rarified group of acts to cross over from the rock and metal world into mainstream consciousness. The title track has been streamed over 65 million times on Spotify alone, earned Gold Record status, and was sung word for word by 81,000 fans when FOZZY recently performed at AEW’s record breaking Wembley Stadium show.
