Chris Jericho has joined forces with bassist P.J. Farley, drummer Kent Slucher and guitarist Joe McGinness to form the 1980s KISS cover band called KUARANTINE.
"When Kent & Joe approached me to sing on a few 80s KISS songs, I jumped at the chance, as it's my favorite era of one of my favorite bands", said the Fozzy vocalist. "We brought in PJ to complete this world-class band with decades of touring experience. We all had one common bond: to stay creative during the lockdown and to do something special for all music fans!" Kuarantine did that when their version of “No,No,No” from Kiss’ 1987 album “Crazy Nights” went to NUMBER 25 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts.
With Jericho as front man and lead singer, he is surrounded by a group of top-notch touring musicians. Kent Slucher has been the powerhouse behind the kit for country music sensation LUKE BRYAN, playing shows with him over the past 12 years, from small clubs to headlining stadiums and amphitheaters. Joe McGinness is a rising country singer/guitarist, who has shared the stage with artists such as OLD DOMINION, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and GRANGER SMITH, and is also a member of KLASSIK '78, a digital tribute to '70s KISS. Bassist P.J. Farley rose to fame in the New Jersey-based gold-selling rock band TRIXTER, who toured with KISS, POISON & SCORPIONS, before writing and recording 2 solo albums and eventually joining Fozzy in 2020. Kuarantine also worked with former KISS guitar player Bruce Kulick, who played on their version of “Heart Of Chrome” and guitarist Charlie Parra who hails from Lima, Peru and is a global rock guitar Youtube sensation, amassing close to a million followers on his channel.
The All Star band has been entertaining fans with their versions of KISS rarities and some good ol' fashioned rock music, releasing three successful single's and videos. Jericho said: "After the huge response to the first two KUARANTINE singles and the hundreds of thousands of views and streams they accrued, we agreed it was time to release our next magnum opus, 'Love's A Deadly Weapon',.which originally appeared on KISS's 1985 album "Asylum". It's heavy, trashy, proggy and most importantly, catchy AF! So cuddle up to your Valentine and enjoy the filthiest love song ever... You're welcome."
Kuarantine music is available everywhere for streaming and download via Madison Records with distribution by The Orchard.
