Fozzy have released the music video for “Painless”, the latest single from their album Judas. Lead singer Chris Jericho (yes, that Chris Jericho) said of it “In essence, it’s a sequel to the ‘Judas’ video and continues the story of the two different dimensions converging. Plus it’s got blazing fires, hot chicks AND a pillow fight…what more could you ask for in a rock video? Check it out NOW”. To see the full interview with Jericho about the track, follow this link: http://loudwire.com/fozzy-painless-video-exclusive-premiere/. It’s a pretty good track, too; Jericho’s vocal performance is Ozzy-esque at moments, and the background antics of the creepy clowns etc in the video are entertaining.
Fozzy are best known as the second most famous case of a wrestler making it as a musician, after of course Macho Man Randy Savage’s 2003 rap album Be A Man (seriously, that’s real). Personally, I’m waiting for The Undertaker’s hotly tipped acoustic folk album. All jokes aside, they’ve enjoyed a 20 year career, and have released seven albums, “honing their craft and steadily improving” according to Loudwire. Their latest, Judas, was described as “their most polished and fully realized album, and should be their most successful as well.” (Loudwire).
