Fozzy’s new studio album Do You Wanna Start A War (Century Media Records) makes its debut on the Billboard charts today recording the band’s highest chart debut on the Billboard 200 at #54 while also notching several major milestone debuts including #20 Rock Albums, #10 Independent Albums, and #9 Hard Rock Albums. Retailer, Best Buy, is carrying an exclusive version that includes a free Fozzy bandana bundled with the CD. Get it in your local store or online at http://smarturl.it/DYWSAWBBY. The bands’ single “Lights Go Out” continues its rise at radio where it is currently Top 40 at Active Rock. Fozzy recently announced their first round of U.S. tour dates as they take to the road with Theory of a Deadman later this summer. A complete list of confirmed Fozzy tour dates and WWE dates, following Chris Jericho’s recent return to wrestling, are listed below.

Chris Jericho recently announced he will host a Reddit AMA on Monday, August 4 at 3:30pm eastern. Everyone is welcome to join in the online Q&A session, as Chris will be interacting with and answering questions directly from fans at www.reddit.com/r/IAmA.

Led by the inimitable duo of guitarist Rich Ward, co-founder of the influential underground band Stuck Mojo, and vocalist Chris Jericho, famed WWE superstar and media personality, the band Fozzy recently released their new album Do You Wanna Start A War. Their sixth studio effort since 2000, Do You Wanna Start A War is the bands follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 release Sin and Bones. Featuring 12-tracks, the new album includes the debut single “Lights Go Out,” alongside the title track and the return of the Theremin in “Bad Tattoo.”

As described by Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, “Do You Wanna Start A War is dark, dense and sharp. Sonically and lyrically, this feels like it's going somewhere big. I love it!” Andy Biersack of Black Veil Brides calls the album “a full on assault! Excellently crafted songs, screaming guitars and soaring vocals! FOZZY have raised the bar and are ready to usher in a new era in rock and roll!”

Over the years, Fozzy has shared the stage with such music luminaries as Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Steel Panther, Shinedown, and many others. The band recently wrapped their spring tour performing across the country winning over thousands of fans at festivals including Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion, and Rockfest before crossing the Atlantic and winding down on the main stage of the Download Festival in the UK.

Fozzy is Chris Jericho on vocals, Rich Ward on guitars and vocals, Frank Fontsere on drums, Billy Grey on guitars, and Paul Di Leo on bass.
