FOZZY is proud and honored to announce the addition of JEFF ROUSE as their new bass player. Jeff is an incredible musician and singer who has spent the last decade playing in DUFF McKAGEN’s LOADED and is also the lead singer and guitar player in THE GUESSING GAME. After former bassist Paul DiLeo amicably and mutually parted ways with FOZZY last May, Jeff stepped in and immediately injected his amazing musicianship and electrifying stage presence into FOZZY’S already critically acclaimed live show. “I’m stoked to have been asked to join FOZZY and to hit the road to support ‘Do You Wanna Start A War!’ Can’t wait to see everyone out there!” Rouse said.  Rich Ward comments, “The first time I saw Jeff play with DUFF McKAGAN’S LOADED, it was immediately apparent that I was watching a special talent. He’s a pocket player with killer tone and amazing stage presence. One of the few total package musicians that I have ever known and it’s an honor to call him a bandmate and more importantly, my brother.

FOZZY have been quite busy with some heavy duty non-stop touring and they have just announced their headlining tour in support of their new single and title track of their new album, Do You Wanna Start a War. The tour is called the CINDERBLOCK PARTY TOUR which will feature two of my favorite bands; Texas Hippie Coalition and Shaman’s Harvest. This will definitely be one tour you don’t want to miss. The 19 date tour sets off on November 20th. I am hoping they add some West Coast dates soon because that lineup is fierce.
