FOZZY Releases Music Video For New Single 'I Still Burn'

FOZZY has released the official music video for its new single, “I Still Burn”. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album, “Boombox”, which is due on May 6.

FOZZY frontman and wrestling superstar Chris Jericho comments: “‘I Still Burn’ is the story of the dreams, the passion and the fire that lie within all of us to be the absolute best we can be…and to do WHATEVER it takes to achieve the goals that make our dreams come true! The sacrifices, the losses, and the triumphs that we have all experienced make up the lyrical DNA of this song. #IStillBurn is FOZZY‘s mission statement, our life’s work and our destiny…and we are so proud to share this message of victory with our FOZZY family!! Plus, Rich‘s [Ward] guitar solo fuckin rules!!!”

Ward adds: “My entire career has been about pushing to the summit of the climb, never satisfied with boiling water with the Sherpas at Base Camp 2. I’ve been touring and making records for three decades, and I remain as passionate as ever. ‘I Still Burn’ is the story of the fire that fuels that passion. This is our story!”

The newest single in FOZZY‘s arsenal is in good company. The band has recorded five consecutive Top 20 singles, but fans across the world know that the benchmark was set high with FOZZY‘s 2017 breakout hit “Judas”. Reaching the Top 5 on the U.S. rock chart and boasting 55 million views on YouTube for the music video, the song has now achieved its biggest milestone yet — gold certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) for accumulating 500,000 certified units.

Addressing the news of “Judas” going gold, Jericho said: “Being awarded a gold record has been a dream of mine ever since I started listening to THE BEATLES at nine years old and saw a picture of them getting an award for ‘Beatles VI’. Then as I grew older and heard Ozzy [Osbourne] talk about his ‘gold discs’ and seeing the walls of Rudolf Schenker‘s house plastered with framed SCORPIONS awards, I set my goals on someday getting one of my own. And for ‘Judas’ to have sold 500,000 units in this day and age completely blows my mind as a fan and a musician, and also makes me realize how far FOZZY has come and how far we are going to go!! Thanks to all of you for making this dream come true for me and the guys. I can’t wait to hang my award on my wall… just like Rudolf.”

According to the RIAA, one equivalent song unit is equal to a single digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams.

“Boombox”, which includes the top 10 singles “Nowhere To Run” and “Sane”, was once again produced by Johnny Andrews.

Jericho previously stated about the LP: “‘Judas’…both the album & the song…was a HUGE breakthrough for FOZZY. It took us to the next level and positioned us as legit players at rock radio and as a live draw. As a result, we knew that we had to follow up with the album of a lifetime… ‘Boombox’ is that album!! You’ve already heard the top ten singles ‘Nowhere To Run’ and ‘Sane’ — kick-ass, hooky songs that set the tone for this record. But it’s ‘I Still Burn’, ‘Army Of One’ and ‘Relax’ that, in my opinion, are going to take this album and this band even further up the rock ‘n’ roll ladder.

“I firmly believe this is the third best album of our entire career!! (Of course I think it’s our best… but I always wanted to hear a band say that.) So crank the volume and hold the ‘Boombox’ up to your earholes!! It’s gonna be a wild ride.”

FOZZY‘s “Save The World” 2022 U.S. tour, featuring special guests GFM, KRASHKARMA and THE NOCTURNAL AFFAIR, started on March 31 in Detroit, Michigan and will wrap on May 16 in Sauget, Illinois.

FOZZY debuted a brand new song, “Purifier”, during its September 2021 concert in Flint, Michigan and has been performing it live ever since. Back in July 2021, FOZZY played another new song, “The Vulture Club”, during its concert in Iowa City, Iowa. The band also performed its previous single, “Sane”, live for the first time.

In May 2021, FOZZY dropped a video for its first new song in two years, the aforementioned “Sane”, which hit one million views in its first two weeks. This first-of-its-kind video was filmed on the longest wooden roller coaster on the planet today.

In the summer of 2020, Chris revealed that FOZZY‘s next LP would contain 12 songs, including a cover of FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD‘s “Relax”.

Ward and Andrews once again did “the lion’s share” of the songwriting for the new LP, which was recorded primarily in Atlanta, Georgia.

In addition to producing “Judas”, Andrews previously co-wrote FOZZY‘s “Lights Go Out” track back in 2014. He has also written songs with the likes of ALL THAT REMAINS, THREE DAYS GRACE and HALESTORM.

In November 2020, FOZZY appeared in its first global live streaming event from Madison Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

This past January, FOZZY parted ways with longtime drummer Frank Fontsere and replaced him with Grant Brooks (THROUGH FIRE).

Fontsere was a founding member of FOZZY, having formed the group in 1999 with Jericho and Ward.

When FOZZY announced Fontsere‘s departure, the band said that he was “stepping down to focus on his family and other projects.”

FOZZY is Chris Jericho (vocals), Rich Ward (guitars, vocals), Grant Brooks (drums), Billy Grey (guitars) and P.J. Farley (bass).
