Fozzy has always been about one thing: bringing good times back to rock and roll. In every incarnation of the band, form the Mongoose McQueen era to the present day, Chris Jericho and Rich Ward have been rocking the socks of fans all over the world, reminding all who see them that rock and roll is about invoking dirty, sweaty, loud, spandex jubilation. Ward is one of the most versatile, underrated riffers in rock and metal, and has been since being a founding member of Stuck Mojo. Jericho's vocals and passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to find the time to excel in pretty much everything he does. These attributes have skyrocketed Fozzy into a position as one of the hottest rock acts in recent memory, a post which is only reinforced with their smoking new album Judas.
"It's definitely the next step. It's an extension. It's more of an evolving Fozzy," explains Jericho. "We really put a lot of stock in bands like U2 and Guns 'N Roses and Metallica, and I think the best example might be David Bowie, where there's always different styles, different eras, and we like that too. And we're not completely changing what we do. But there's different, more melodies and this is very much a hookier record. There's not as many guitar solos on the record, but it's still heavy and melodic. It's an evolution from 'Do You Wanna Start A War'  as much as 'Do You Wanna Start A War' was an evolution from 'Sin And Bones' . I think it's a great trilogy of records that shows a lot of growth, but it's still very heavy and very melodic."
