Chicago-based hard rockers SOiL will join metal heavyweights FOZZY on a 9-date U.K. tour launching November 27th in Stoke, England, and wrapping-up December 6th in Brighton, England. The tour marks both bands’ first return to the United Kingdom since highly successful appearances on this year’s Download Festival. The tour will also feature the U.K.’s own Breed 77.
“The U.K. has always been FOZZY’s second home, and after the amazing experience we had rocking Download 2012, we couldn’t wait to return to the U.K.,”adds FOZZY frontman Chris Jericho.“That’s why this tour with SOiL is so huge for us. To be able to come back to England, Scotland and Wales with a band of their stature is going to blow away our fans, their fans, and make new fans for both of us! Mark my words… for excitement, energy and pure value, FOZZY vs Soil is going to be THE tour of the fall!!”
“It will be great to have FOZZY joining us for the tour,” says SOiL bassist Tim King.“We had the pleasure of playing a few shows with them this spring and the two bands fit perfectly together.” The tour will be SOiL’s last before entering the studio to record their long-awaited new album featuring the return of original frontman Ryan McCombs.
FOZZY will be making their first U.K. appearance since the August 13 release of new album “Sin And Bones” – their fifth studio album, and first for new label Century Media Records. “I’ve known the SOiL guys for over 15 years and even have a copy of their first demo,” says FOZZY guitarist Rich Ward.“It’s always great to tour with a band that you like, but it’s even better when the band are your friends. Don’t miss an opportunity to see this tour – and bring a helmet!”
