Fozzy And SOiL Announce Co-Headlining Tour Of The United Kingdom

American heavy metal band Fozzy, led by WWE Superstar Chris Jericho and Stuck Mojo founder Rich Ward, has announced that the group will be embarking on a tour of the United Kingdom this November, where Fozzy will share the headlining slot with Chicago hard rock outfit SOiL, as well as British alternative metal group Breed 77.

"The U.K. has always been Fozzy's second home, and after the amazing experience we had rocking Download 2012, we couldn’t wait to return to the U.K.," adds frontman Chris Jericho. "That’s why this tour with Soil is so huge for us. To be able to come back to England, Scotland and Wales with a band of their stature is going to blow away our fans, their fans, and make new fans for both of us! Mark my words... for excitement, energy and pure value, Fozzy vs SOiL is going to be THE tour of the fall!!"

"It will be great to have Fozzy joining us for the tour," says SOiL bassist Tim King. “We had the pleasure of playing a few shows with them this spring and the two bands fit perfectly together." The tour will be SOiL’s last before entering the studio to record their long-awaited new album featuring the return of original frontman Ryan McCombs.

"I’ve known the Soil guys for over 15 years and even have a copy of their first demo," says Fozzy guitarist Rich Ward. “It’s always great to tour with a band that you like, but it’s even better when the band are your friends. Don’t miss an opportunity to see this tour – and bring a helmet!"
