Q: You are about to hit the road with Fozzy. You guys are playing Uproar this year alongside some of the biggest names in rock. Obviously, performing is something you have a ton of experience at, but do you have any plans to set yourself apart from the other bands on this tour?
Jericho: "Well, our attitude is, we want to be the best band in the world. I think that one of the things that we have on our side, when performing, is it’s very entertaining, very energetic, very hard hitting. I think that people who have never seen us live are usually blown away the first time, because they didn’t expect it, and we really like that. So, going on Uproar is our first US tour from coast to coast. It’s the first time that we’ve been in front of thousands and thousands of people. Obviously, we have a huge fanbase, but it’s going to be 10 fold by the time we finish this tour, as well as during it. So, I think that we are a very road tested machine like band that will be showing what we can do, and we’re excited to have this opportunity. We’re going to make the most of it every single night. We want to steal the show every night. We want to be the band, when people say; You know SHINEDOWN was great, PAPA ROACH was great, but fucking Fozzy just blew us away. We have that power, we have that capacity, so we are looking forward to it."
