FOZZY will continue the headlining “Judas Rising”tour this summer/fall with ADELITAS WAY, STONE BROKEN and THE STIR. The run kicks off in Atlanta on August 24, hitting major markets like Minneapolis, Cincinnati and St. Louis along the way. Tickets for this leg of the “Judas Rising” tour will be available to the general public on Friday, May 11 at 10 a.m. local time. Citi cardmembers can access pre-sale tickets today at 2 p.m. local time.
The announcement comes after FOZZY‘s latest single, “Painless”, broke into the Top 10 on Active Rock radio, currently sitting at #8 on the Mediabase chart. “Painless” is the second focus track off the band’s seventh studio album, “Judas”, released via Century Media Records in October 2017. Since its release, the track accumulated nearly two million streams on Spotify and more than two million views on YouTube.
FOZZY‘s headlining tour kicked off in May 2017 with sold-out shows across North America and Europe. The five-piece band is also slated to perform at various festivals, including Rock USA, Rockfest, Rock Of Ages and Wacken Open Air this summer before returning to the United States for the next leg of the “Judas Rising” tour.

The production duties on “Judas” were handled by Johnny Andrews, who co-wrote FOZZY‘s “Lights Go Out” track back in 2014 and has written songs with the likes of ALL THAT REMAINS, THREE DAYS GRACE and HALESTORM in the past.
FOZZY singer — and WWE wrestling superstar — Chris Jericho recently told WDHA-FM 105.5 FM that the band will re-team with Andrews for its next album.
