Fozzy have unleashed the first single from their forthcoming seventh studio record. Check out the electrifying new music video for the track ‘Judas’ right here.


‘Judas’ will serve as the official theme song for the WWE event ‘NXT Takeover: Chicago’ on May 20th.

Fozzy frontman and WWE Legend Chris Jericho offers his take on the ‘Judas’ music video, telling us:

“For such a dark and sexy song like ‘Judas’, we wanted a dark and sexy video to match… and we got that and more.

“In one take we filmed a unique, visually stunning masterpiece that combines an incredible song, psycho clowns, hot chicks, a man on fire and a great rock’n’roll band, all in one tasty video morsel. What more could you want… a giant rabbit holding balloons?

“Oh yeah, we’ve got that too!”
