Hot off their heralded run on this summer's Uproar tour throughout North America, Fozzy have released the music video for the song 'Sandpaper'. The video premiered exclusively on WWE.com last week, and the track has been named the theme song for the WWE's upcoming Hell In A Cell pay-per-view event, which will be held October 28, 2012 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta.
'Sandpaper', the leading track from Fozzy's new release 'Sin And Bones', features guest vocals by M Shadows. Directed by Sean McEwen, the video is inspired by horror classic 'Evil Dead', with M. Shadows playing the role of FOZZY's evil puppet master. The music video for 'Sandpaper' can be seen at the bottom of this page.

Upon its release 'Sin And Bones' was well received by press. Metal Hammer (UK) about the album: "'Sin And Bones' is impressive, diverse and mature... this is a masterclass that should take Fozzy on to bigger things." Metal Hammer (D) said: "Once more Fozzy are right in the middle between Metal and Hard Rock, powered by Wards catchy guitar work and massive choruses." and Classic Rock (D) decided: "Jericho and his musicians are rocking out straight forward, serve one hookline after the other and know exactly how to come up with a catchy melody."
In November it's finally time for Fozzy to come back to Europe for their much anticipated tour with Soil and Breed 77.
Frontman Chris Jericho is also scheduled for a very special spoken words performance on November 25th at the Garage in London:
