Fozzy Debuts New Video Ahead Of Tour’s Launch

Fozzy is giving audiences their first taste of its next album.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Judas’ today, which is taken from its next album, whose release date has not yet been announced.  The video features the band performing its new single as it stands surrounded by stacks of amplifiers.  It also boasts a certain element of humor with “stage hands” blatantly holding fans in front of the band to mimic wind while a pair of women stand in the background swinging lights around who eventually move to the fore to dance to the song.

The song itself is a heavy, guitar-driven work that is certain to impress any longtime Fozzy fan.  The lead single and title track from the band’s upcoming seventh full-length studio recording, it will also serve as the theme song for World Wrestling Entertainment’s upcoming NXTTakeover: Chicago pay-per-view on May 20th.  Audiences can experience the song and video online now here.

Fozzy front man and WWE superstar Chris Jericho discussed the video in a recent interview, explaining how the video came to be.

“For such a dark and sexy song like ‘Judas’ we wanted a dark and sexy video to match..and and we got that and more,” Jericho said.  “In one take we filmed a unique, visually stunning masterpiece that combines an incredible song, psycho clowns, how chicks, a man on fire and a great rock n roll band, all I none tasty video morsel.  What more could you want…a giant rabbit holding balloons?  Oh yeah, we’ve got that, too.”

The band’s new song and video are just two of its efforts to promote its new album.  In anticipation of the album’s eventual release, the band will launch its “Judas Rising Tour” beginning Friday, May 5 in Virginia Beach, VA.

The nearly two-month-long tour includes performances at the annual Carolina Rebellion Festival on May 7, River City Rockfest on May 27 and many other dates.  The tour’s full schedule is noted below.  Sons of Texas will serve as support on select dates.

Adrenaline Mob is giving audiences their first taste of its new album, and it’s doing it in a big way.

The band debuted the video for the song ‘King of the Ring’ this week via Loudwire.  The song is the lead single from the band’s upcoming album We The People, which is available for pre-order now via multiple outlets here.  The album is currently scheduled to be released Friday, June 2 via Century Media Records.

The video, shot in Long Island, NY and directed by Ron Cote, is a classic style work that features the band performing its new single in a studio setting established to look like a live setting.   It serves as a first introduction for new band members Dave Z (bass) and Jordan Cannata (drums).

The song itself is a heavy, guitar-driven composition that makes for a solid first impression for the band’s new album. It is meant to deliver a message about overcoming all obstacles and is streaming online now via Spotify.  Considering this and the song’s title, it would be no surprise if it becomes an anthem for any of World Wrestling Entertainment’s upcoming pay-per-views.

Sanctuary Unveils ‘Dream Of The Incubus’ Lyric Video

Sanctuary is giving fans another taste of its next album.

The band has unveiled the lyric video for its song ‘Dream of the Incubus.’  The song comes from the band’s upcoming compilation record Inception, which will be released in stores and online on Friday, February 4 via Century Media Records.  The video presents Sanctuary performing its song in a live performance from 1986 complete with lyrics.

The video’s recording quality will take audiences who grew up in the 80s back in time all while the song entertains them at the same time.  Audiences can see the video online now here.

Guitarist Lenny Rutledge said he was happy to see ‘Dream of the Incubus’ finally get a proper release because the song is a rare work from the band.  He added the performance used for the lyric video was just as rare because of how few times the band ever performed the song live.

‘Dream Of The Incubus’ was one of those forgotten SANCTUARY songs.  It’s awesome to see it finally get released,” Rutledge said.  “I believe we only played ‘Incubus’ live one time. This video footage was from our first Seattle show in the late 80s at a venue called The OZ. The introduction at the beginning is Jeff Gilbert from the radio show “Brain Pain”. Jeff was a huge help to SANCTUARY and many other Seattle bands from that time frame.”

Queensryche Unveils ‘Bulletproof’ Video

Queensryche has unveiled the video for its latest single.

The band unveiled the video for ‘Bulletproof’ this week.  The video is streaming online now here.  It mixes together footage from the veteran rock act’s recently completed year-long Condition Human world tour.

Front man Todd LaTorre explained the band opted to use its live footage for the video in order to illustrate the song’s lyrical theme.

“‘Bulletproof’ is a journey through a relationship gone bad and however painful the relationship is you still find a way to persevere,” LaTorre said. “We elected to present the song in a live setting as a sharp contrast to the videos we’ve done for the Condition Human album to help bring this chapter to a close and start the next journey.”
