FOZZY’s fresh single, “Spotlight,” has just hit the airwaves through Madison Records/The Orchard and is available for streaming below
An accompanying music video for the track is set to premiere on Thursday, October 26.
Produced by FOZZY‘s longtime collaborator, Johnny Andrews (known for his work with THREE DAYS GRACE, ALL THAT REMAINS, HALESTORM), and sonically shaped by mixer Jacob Hanson (noted for his work with VOLBEAT, AMARANTHE, ARCH ENEMY), “Spotlight” represents a compelling evolution of FOZZY‘s musical identity. Blending elements of rock and metal with profound emotion and sonic prowess, the track exemplifies FOZZY‘s unwavering commitment to rock excellence.
Frontman Chris Jericho states: “On the heels of our fifth consecutive top ten hit ‘I Still Burn’, our new song ‘Spotlight’ pushes the boundaries of FOZZY‘s sound while still retaining the punch and maximum riffage you’ve come to expect! And with the FOZZY mindset of the triple-hook rule, I still can’t stop humming the damn thing after dozens of listens!! This is going to be the perfect tune to sing along to live and in your car for a long time to come! It’s time to turn on the spotlight!”
The group is renowned for their innovative and imaginative videos, showcasing their prowess once again with “Spotlight.” The music video features Jericho in an unprecedented setting, orchestrating hundreds of drones that illuminate the night sky, creating a spectacular first-ever drone show music video.
The band’s most recent album, “Boombox,” made its debut in May 2022 and featured the hit song “I Still Burn,” which recently surpassed two and a half million views on YouTube. The album also included the Top 10 singles “Nowhere To Run” and “Sane.”
In the spring of this year, FOZZY embarked on a tour with UGLY KID JOE as part of the latter band’s first U.S. tour in 27 years.
In January 2022, the group bid farewell to their longtime drummer, Frank Fontsere, welcoming Grant Brooks (previously of THROUGH FIRE) as his replacement. Fontsere, a founding member of FOZZY and collaborator since the band’s formation in 1999 with Jericho and Rich Ward (guitar), stepped down from his role to prioritize his family and other projects.
