Fozzy is kicking off 2022 with an updated lineup.

The “Judas” rockers have announced that they have a new drummer: Grant Brooks of the band Through Fire. Brooks takes the place of original Fozzy drummer Frank Fontsere, who’s leaving the band to “focus on his family and other projects.”

“We are stoked to unleash the pure energy and talent that Grant brings to the band and we are ready to EXPLODE in 2022,” Fozzy says.

The band adds that they “wish [Fontsere] nothing but the best and thank him for his years of maximum rock.” Fontsere joined Fozzy when they were founded in 1999, and has played on all of their albums.

Fozzy’s 2022 plans include the release of their new album, Boombox, which is due out April 15.
