Exclusive: Fozzy Premiere New Single, “Sandpaper,” Featuring Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows

We’re excited today to be able to bring you the exclusive world premiere of the brand new single from Fozzy, “Sandpaper.” Check it out below!

“Sandpaper” is taken from Fozzy’s upcoming new album, Sin and Bones, which is due out August 14 via Century Media Records. Not only does the track feature the vocal prowess of frontman Chris Jericho, but also a guest vocal appearance from none other than Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows.

      Chris is cool ass.

  • ex-CMer

    Funny that when Rich Ward was in Stuck Mojo he used to preach and stand against all flavor-of-the-day heavy bands, now he’s reaching out to them to help them sell his lifeless jock rock.  The “Duke of Metal” is now the Douche of Jockrock, enjoy posing for a living Rich…

  • Bee

    Matt is good… Jericho sounds like someone from a glam metal band, Not my taste.

  • Rad

    This song is excellent. Love Fozzy, but I guess haters gonna hate.

  • Lilia7x

    Don’t likE it.

    • http://twitter.com/jericho4life lillian santana

      Then you have no taste

  • Lilia7x

    I like what x-cmer said

  • Bobmanz

    They played this at Download Festival. It was shit.

  • Edgeratedr8

    Amazing. Fozzy is one of the most underrated bands in metal history.

  • Magdalenojoe

    fucking horrible just quit  and take your butt buddy portnoy with you

    • http://twitter.com/jericho4life lillian santana

      Shut up & get taste.

  • Nightmareracing

    Needs more Shads :)

  • D_mart

    is this pop or rock music?

  • Cvgsmackfan

    this is kinda cool different from chasing the grail. can’t wait to hear the new record from start to finish once it hits the stores in august.

  • Matt Reptar

    Hopefully, this is a one off track and the rest of the album is better. This sucks balls. Jericho sounds like shit here.

    • http://twitter.com/jericho4life lillian santana

      Cool song your a asshole.

      • Matt Reptar

         It’s you’re and an. You also forgot punctuation after song. Asshole.

        • Tummy

          I agree with Reptar….this sounds more like a pop song than metal. Rich Ward has definitely list his metal heritage

  • steve

    i hate chris jericho…he’s such a deuche

    • http://twitter.com/jericho4life lillian santana

      Your a ass must be a Drunk fan or Cena

    • SpellingPolice

      I believe you mean douche my good sir

  • Swiftyyy

    This is amazing, very catchy and has a dark, melodic kind of feel. Jericho has changed up his vocals a bit for this one but it works well with the song. Trolls are gonna troll here but this is solid and something refreshing and new for Fozzy. Love the Shadows parts too, they get you fired up for the verses. Well written, well executed! Keep it up Fozzy, might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I’m drinking the fuck out of this right now

  • Juggernaut

    yeah baby yeah!! ( in my best Austin Powers voice )  

  • Angela

    chris jericho should just stick to wrestling because he is not good at singing at all. BOO!

    • http://twitter.com/jericho4life lillian santana

      This is a great song moron .You have no taste at all.

    • Mattsanders 1981

      I believe you mean: “Chris Jericho should stick to wrestling. Because he’s not good at singing at all. Boo! (ah, you scared me!)

  • Theundertaker617

    sound a bit like avenged sevenfold but I prefer avenged ! 

  • CriticalAcclaim

    This freaking kicks ass. Haters gonna hate.

  • Elizabetheminem

    I love it!!! certainly is one of the best songs of FOZZY !!! 

  • ChiTownSanDee

    Jericho’s koo, but i fukn luv Shadows…he’s fukn awesome!

  • M.ShadowsFanGirl_WWEBitches.

    So many Haters, and I’m not even sure why, though I’m a devoted WWE fan, I also separate Jericho, from Fozzy. As much as I dislike Jericho in the ring, this song is good. As much as I like Fozzy, I don’t like Jericho in ring. See, don’t blur your lines people, and quit being rude to someone for voicing their opinions. ^-^ 

    • Swiftyyy

      When any band that I like goes only a public forum like this where people have many different tastes, preferences and biases, the trolling can be horrendous. It’s good that there are websites like this though that give some exposure to bands people might not have heard of but. Jericho being in multiple industries is a BIG double edged sword, so there are no favors for Fozzy, they’ve had to earn everything they’ve got

  • deathinvited

    i dont listen to Fozzy at all.. ever.. im into something more metal.. but, i am an a7x fan and so, im here for M.Shadows.. and jericho is the vocals of this band right? he sounds so weird.. haha! =P

    • Silverace

       Leave the growling and all the voice rasping/ whispering / distortion out of it.  Also- the lyics seem very objective.  The solo is awesome but too commercially short.  I liked Rivival, need more melodic and melodic metal type songs….Inside my Head and Dark Passenger snippets on Amazon sound like the two songs I will download. 

  • deathinvited

    i do wish shadows did a verse by himself tho.. i hate them both singing over one another.. just because i dont like jerichos voice.. at all.. maybe its just me.. take care you all!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000039595236 Perrin Hastings

    Not bad. I still like some of the stuff from Chasing the Grail a lot better but it’s still good. Can’t wait for the new album

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5SYNKEKL45JYQI2P66SKVYHJVE Jericho and Eve Are The Sh!t

    This isn’t about the WWE or whatever, it’s about the music. The song reminds me of Grail from Chasing The Grail. The last album was great and I’m sure this will be too. Grail was actually my favorite song along with Pray For Blood, and Let the Madness begin. I’m sure those song types will be on the album too. I’m also hopping for something vintage like Enemy and The Way I Am too! High hopes! I hope Jericho does signings like he did a few years ago! Fozzy has made a Hip-Hop and R&B fan turn to Heavy Metal! Who knew? Support the album you guys!

  • http://twitter.com/pnwalton Phil Walton

    I don’t think this is best example of what Fozzy can do- they cover so many genres within their music, often across a single song. They are one of the only bands i’ve listened to that can blend the classic rock of AC/DC and Guns and Roses with the modern radio rock of Alter Bridge and Nickelback (for examples sake). This song doesn’t do Chris’ vocals justice either, he seems to overshadowed (sorry for the pun) by M.Shadows’ immense vocals.

  • Neonpinkminx

    Love Chris the person, he is a man of many talents but singing is not one of them. When he was on Celebrity Duets, he was the first one voted off. Fozzy’s fanbase exists ALMOST only in Europe.

    • Swiftyyy

      Hahaha they might be popular there but tell that to the people who came and saw them in Australia and the people that wanted to see them with other big name artists they’ve toured with in America OTHERWISE THEY WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN INVITED. The reason he was first voted off Celebrity Duets is because he was given a dodgy song that he tried his best with anyway, and there are more politics in those kind of shows than there is talent… it’s all about the ratings. If you appreciated his many talents you would read his book and find this out for yourself.

      Also if they are “ALMOST ONLY BIG IN EUROPE” then why the hell are they attracting a band member to this song that is from America? Avenged have a better eye for talent than you do my dear.

  • RawIsJericho

    Metal : Fozzy = Jericho : Raw

    This is awesome! 

  • Alysson_a7x

    fucking amazing man 

  • Litafandebora

    I love it <3

  • Meel-a7x

    This just can’t be more epic

  • Martin Popoff

    Hate that intro rap/lyric. Love the chorus, which is what’s making it a grower. Pretty Kiss-y for Fozzy though, and I love the singing. No problem with it except… it actually doesn’t sound like Chris! Good parts all over this. I’ll reserve judgment given how it fits with the rest of it?

    • Swiftyyy

      You are clearly a wrestling fan with a side interest in music. In my opinion that is one of the sickest parts of the song and is the underlying theme behind the whole song and finally is DEFINITELY NOT A RAP INTRO. He is more talking than singing but that isn’t “rap”… fmd

  • FozzyFan


  • Swiftyyy


  • Stmojo7

    Where is the huge
    Rich ward riff? This is a great performance from M shadows the rest is a huge disapointment.

  • Smexy_rhi96

    Holy fuck this is awesome!

  • Meep383

    Oh my god LOVE IT! So good 

  • Knockemdeadkid2002

    i hope the other songs on the album are better…im a big fozzy fan but this song is aweful compared to their past albums

  • notlikenit

    not interesting at all this blows m shadows should of steared clear of this crap

  • Morenojuan09

    m shadows saves this song can’t bash it just because his awesomeness touched this.Chris Jericho has to just stick to wrestling.

    • notlikenit

      i do agree with u morenojuan09 shadows is the only good thing good about this song & wrestlers need 2 stay out of rock music

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000902608983 Jon Lee Wilson

        Chris is doing a lot better than other wrestlers could do. The problem with people is that when they look at a Pro wrestler, they can’t look at them like anything else, like a actor (Dwyane Johnson) or a politician (Jesse Ventura). This is a pretty good song, and its good Chris has something to go to after he retires from the ring.

  • http://twitter.com/dancingingraves Jessica

    I want to hate this song so bad and I can’t because M. Shadows keeps it from failing in such an epic way that thousands of unborn children would be crying in the womb, or trying to abort themselves to avoid this crap.

    Clearly there is a reason they chose to have another band’s front man pretty much sing this song.

  • http://twitter.com/SuessManZada Richard Susi

    not a fan of this song, doesn’t mean the rest of the album will be bad and I’m not even calling the song bad it just doesn’t do it for me. i don’t think Jericho’s voice matches well with the mood of the song. then again i didn’t like how his voice was on God Pounds his Nails and now its one of my favorite songs from Grail. Still pumped to hear the rest of the album.

  • MetalThor

    I think Fozzy kicks all kinds of ass, with or without guest vocalists!  This song is proof of that, cannot wait for the new album of awesomeness!!

  • Mariah

    M. Shadows is the only reason I like this Song.

  • Vivian nogueira

    i love it

  • http://www.facebook.com/cdocouto Christina Docouto

    Ive met Chris J at a Fozzy show and he is one of the nicest people Ive ever met! He really lives rock and roll and clearly if it’s something you ve dreamed of doing and actually love doing it, why not be in a kick ass metal band! They rock! And Im glad he isnt in wrestling as much, its just getting aweful now lol

    LOVE YOU GUYS! Kick ass song!

  • Metal God

     Chris Jericho SUCKS & so does FOZZY!!!

  • sara

    i <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<e the song!!!! my new favorite fozzy´s song!! :)

  • Man_shark-1985

    Chris Jericho is one of the best performers inside a wrestling ring, ever.
    His use of psychology, timing and athleticism has made him one of the greatest story-tellers in the ring.
    Fozzy are awesome and give everything when they perform onstage. If you want to feel like part of a show, go and see Fozzy, live. You’ll be left wanting more when you get home!
