FOZZY, STUCK MOJO Members Launch WALKING WITH KINGS
November 4, 2011
"Leap Of Faith", the first video from WALKING WITH KINGS the new Atlanta, Georgia-based band featuring Rich Ward and Frank Fontsere of FOZZY and STUCK MOJO fame, alongside Terry Chism (vocals, keyboards) and Simon Farmery (bass) can be seen below.
WALKING WITH KINGS will release its full-length debut in December. The CD, which is said to be "a collective songwriting effort between Ward and Chism," consists of 11 tracks that deliver a positive message in our troubled world.
The song "Leap Of Faith" is about those that have enough faith and courage to make life-changing and life-altering decisions. Many of us are willing to take such a risk, yet far too many will continue to walk along the edge and stand in judgment of those that took "the leap" and didn't make it.
WALKING WITH KINGS parted ways with bassist Sean Delson (FOZZY) in October and replaced him with Farmery. The band stated at the time, "Sean is an amazing bassist and has been instrumental in many of the tracks on the forthcoming debut album. However, Sean has elected to pursue other musical opportunities."
Farmery has played with bands PRIDE and FURYON and has had the privilege to tour all over Europe with some of the biggest bands in rock. He also recently performed in FOZZY alongside Ward and Fontsere at a couple of dates on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival tour.
"Working with [Simon] on the ['Leap Of Faith'] video was an awesome experience," says Terry. "[Now] everyone [can] see the kind of energy and talent this Englishman brings to the band and to the stage. He's made his place in the KINGS family, plus his British accent keeps us entertained. Feels like we've been playing together for years."
