Fozzy Signs To Century Media Records

American heavy metal outfit Fozzy, featuring professional wrestler Chris Jericho and Stuck Mojo guitarist Rich Ward, has announced that they have signed a new record deal with Century Media, who will release the band’s next studio album.

“We are so excited and honored to be part of the Century Media family,” says Jericho, “Fozzy finally has a record company with the firepower and worldwide influence we need and deserve to rise to the next level – Century Media is the perfect home for Fozzy, and we are stoked to release the masterpiece album of our career and conquer the world… and elsewhere!”

“There are very few musicians I respect more than Rich Ward, and I couldn’t be prouder of bringing him home to Century Media Records, the label that introduced me to Stuck Mojo in 1995,” says Century Media Records product manager Paul Gargano. “Chris is one of the most captivating entertainers and electrifying frontmen I know, and Fozzy have emerged as one of the best-kept secrets in hard rock and metal over the years – now it’s time to let the secret out…”

“Shortly after my 12th Birthday, while air-guitaring to Iron Maiden, I decided that when I grew up, I wanted to ‘pay my bills’ by playing guitar,” says Ward. “In 1995, Century Media Records allowed this seemingly unreachable goal to become a reality with my band Stuck Mojo. When that relationship came to an end in 2001, I continued making and releasing music with several different bands, through several different record companies. There was only one common thread in all my experiences with these other organizations – I wished they were more like Century Media.

“The truth is, like any ‘first’ relationship, it’s tough to get a real perspective of how good it really is until you’ve had other relationships to compare it to. After having lots of opportunities to gain some perspective, I am honored to return to Century Media Records as they become the home for Fozzy’s music.

“I’d like to thank Robert Kampf, Oliver Withoft, Don Robertson, Paul Gargano, and the Century Media staff for bringing Fozzy into their family of amazing bands. I’m so grateful to be able to play music for a living, and it is a privilege to continue my career with the label that gave me my start.”

Fozzy Bassist, Sean Delson Leaves The Band

Sean Delson, the bass player for American heavy metal band Fozzy, has announced that he has decided to “retire” from the band in order to pursue other musical interests. A statement from Delson reads as follows:

“Hello good people!

“After nearly a decade of playing in Fozzy and enjoying the most fun you can pretty much legally have, I have decided to step down as the Bass Player for Fozzy and let some other lucky soul come in and live out their dreams. Playing in Fozzy has allowed me to achieve nearly 99% of all my musical aspirations. For that, I shall forever be eternally grateful to the band, and the team behind it. We have all played together in different bands throughout the years, and I have no doubt that somewhere down the road, at some point, we will share the stage again. A personal and heartfelt thanks goes out to Rich Ward, for always calling on me to play in every project that ever came his way, and for always believing in me. Thank you Rich.

“In the years prior to my work with Fozzy, The Duke, and Stuck Mojo, most of you know that I was in a band called Agent Cooper. It was actually playing with Agent Cooper that led me to joining Fozzy. Rich came out to a showcase we were playing, and, after the gig, asked me if I would help him record his debut solo album. For you trivia heads out there, Frank Fontsere was playing drums that night with us (and is also a long time member of the Agent Cooper Alumni). After many records, tours, and just plain living the dream… I started feeling a calling to finish something that I had started many years ago. So, along with Mike Martin, Eric Frampton (you know these guys from Stuck Mojo, The Duke, and Fozzy), Doug Busbee, and our new drummer Ganesh Giri Jaya… I hope to see you all on upcoming tours in a town near you!

“I’d like to close this announcement by offering up something personal and heartfelt about Chris Irvine (Jericho): I have never played with such a famous and successful celebrity before… And yes, he is larger than life. But in all the years I have known him, he has proven to be one of the most down to Earth and easy going guys I have ever played with. His work ethic is beyond compare, and I have never met a more tireless working professional.

“I appreciate all of his support over the years, and ongoing well wishes for the future.

“Thank you so much, for everything……. Chris, Rich, CS, Billy, and Mark!!

Sean B. Delson”

The band has already announced that Delson’s replacement will be Paul Di Leo, who has previously worked with the likes of Billy Joel and Joe Lynn Turner, as well as currently being a member of Adrenaline Mob, the supergroup which features former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and Fozzy guitarist Rich Ward.

“Paul Di Leo is a greasy groovin, power pocket, monster tone producing, master showman of the highest calibre,” says Rich Ward. “Together onstage over the last few months we have become the Wonder Twins of metal and I know he’s gonna blow our fan’s minds!!”

Chris Jericho continues, “I’m excited and honored to have such a talented player and performer like Paul in Fozzy! I’m convinced he’s a big piece of the puzzle who’s going to help us continue to rise to the next level worldwide.”
