However, calling them just “entertainers” would be abridging their talent as Ward is one of the most versatile, underrated riffers in rock n roll and Jericho’s vocal range and passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to excel in pretty much everything he does. Throw in the powerhouse rock solid drumming of Frank Fontsere, the blazing leads of Billy Grey and the genius & energy of returning bassist Paul DiLeo and it's no surprise that Fozzy has skyrocketed into becoming one of the hottest rock acts in years.
The band inched up the ladder after releasing four progressively popular studio albums. However, it was 2012’s Sin & Bones, which featured the hit single “Sandpaper” (over 3 million views on YouTube) that found the band reaching a level of legitimacy that drew a mass audience to drink in their trademark heavy melodic groove. Sin & Bones eventually reached #143 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, but it was their next album, Do You Wanna Start A War (produced by Ward), released in the summer of 2014 that really blew the door open, debuting at #54 on Billboard and giving the band their first top 30 single in "Lights Go Out” (which was also the theme for the 2014 WWE Summerslam PPV and blared in sports arenas nationwide), along with the live favorite title track and the ABBA cover (your eyes do not deceive you),“SOS”.
But as much success the band had enjoyed, nothing compared to the juggernaut known as "JUDAS". Released in May 2017, the song spent 5 WEEKS at NUMBER ONE on the highly influential 'Big Uns Countdown' on Sirius/XM's Octane channel, amassed over 18 MILLION views for its video on YouTube and cracked the TOP 5 on the US Rock Radio Charts. With that giant hit song in their arsenal, Fozzy is now back on the road on their wildly successful Judas Rising Tour. After sharing the stage over the years with Metallica, Kiss, Avenged Sevenfold, Slash, Saxon, Theory Of A Dead Man, Drowning Pool, Steel Panther, Hardcore Superstar & Buckcherry, Fozzy is back on the stage to bring good times and great tunes to their fans around the world and elsewhere! Add in the arrival of their new album also named "Judas" on October 13, 2017, it's the perfect time to remind the world that not only is Judas Rising, but so is Fozzy!
We are Fozzy.

With the song "Halo" gaining major radio attention, a major label bidding war broke out in an attempt to sign SOiL. The band would ultimately sign to J Records (BMG) by music industry legend Clive Davis. Clive, responsible for signing such acts as Pink Floyd and Aerosmith, stated that "you're gonna be my only rock band for now. You're going to be a priority, and I want to break this band." SOiL experienced mainstream success with the major label debut "Scars" which was released in September 2001. This achievement was aided by the popular singles "Halo" and "Unreal" which gained the band exposure on MTV. The success resulted in the band winning Metal Edge magazine's 2001 Readers' Choice Award for "Next Big Thing". The band consistently toured in support of top name acts such as Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie which propelled the group into arena sized venues and crowds.
In 2004, the band released their second major label album "re.de.fine". The group toured for a year straight in support of the album and returned home to begin writing follow up material and finish various live dates.
The band released their next two albums "True Self" (2006) and "Picture Perfect" (2009) and proved that they were a mainstay in the Hard Rock world with non stop touring and by spawning yet another top charting hit single with "The Lesser Man" in 2010.
SOiL released its sixth studio album, entitled "Whole", on August 20, 2013. The album was a "Return to form" for the band and has been hailed by fans and critics alike as the album that could have come directly after the "Scars" album. Some featured songs from "WHOLE" include the top 40 charting singles "Shine On" and "The Hate Song". Both meeting with strong rotation and charting at the Active Rock format.
After celebrating their 20th anniversary in January of 2017, SOiL entered into the studio to record new material to be included on “SCREAM: The essentials”, a Greatest Hits collection featuring the songs that solidified SOiL as Hard Rock mainstays, as well as, alternate versions of popular tracks and unreleased material. The new studio track "Gimme Some Lovin" is a cover song originally featured in the 1980 smash hit cult classic movie "The Blues Brothers". "We felt it was a perfect song to add the album" states bassist Tim King. "It tied in our Chicago roots and the 20th anniversary of the band perfectly".
Other tracks included on "SCREAM..." include an acoustic version of "Can You Heal Me" recorded at Dimebag Darrell's home studio and produced by Vinnie Paul. Also included is a special version of "Give It Up" featuring the late Wayne Static of Static-X contributing verse, chorus, and bridge vocal lines throughout the song, and a cover of Soundgarden’s classic “Rusty Cage”.
SOiL continue to tour worldwide and stay active in the music industry.
