Fozzy Signs To Riot! Entertainment

Heavy metal supergroup Fozzy, which features members of Stuck Mojo as well as wrestling superstar Chris Jericho, has signed a new record deal with Riot! Entertainment, through which they will be releasing their new album "Chasing The Grail" which is expected to be released early this summer.

"This is without a doubt one of the highlights of my life and my business career for Fozzy to be Riot's first fully international signing," Riot CEO/owner John Howarth said. "I have no doubt that this album will do well and truly break Fozzy as a major international artist. The early interest has been incredible and we are looking at going with the best partners the world over, be it partnerships with other labels or distributors, we are keen to talk to companies who see the potential. I am really looking forward to this album and for this to be the start of a long working relationship."

"I'm very excited to know that the new Fozzy record is going to be released by John Howarth and Riot," Chris Jericho said. "Riot was by far the biggest supporter of Fozzy's last album All That Remains and did everything they could to spread the Fozzpel not only across Australia , but around the world as well. As a result ATR was by far our most successful album to date. To make this partnership even more exciting is the fact that we have written the absolute best album that we have ever done. This album will see Fozzy reaching new heights and breaking down more barriers to show all fans of heavy rock and heavy metal exactly who we are as a band. 2009 is the year of the Fozz!"

lol JUST KIDDING. I kinda got out of wrestling a while back. But I will never get out of music.

I still remember the April fools joke about Mustaine and Chris Jericho. I laughed about that for days.....literally.
