Last year, Fozzy singer, and professional wrestler, Chris Jericho joined forces with Trixter bassist P.J. Farley, guitarist Joe McGinness and drummer Kent Slucher to form a 1980s KISS cover band called Kuarantine. The band’s latest video, for the song Love’s A Deadly Weapon, which originally appeared on KISS‘s 1985 album Asylum, can be seen below.

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. 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.”

To watch Kuarantine’s other performances click on the highlighted song titles: No, No No and Heart Of Chrone featuring Bruce Kulick.

Jericho spoke Ruben Mosqueda of and stated, “We’re paying tribute to non-makeup KISS…we lobe that era.” Read more here.

In addition to his world-renowned wrestling career, first with World Wrestling Entertainment and now with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Jericho is the lead singer of the internationally successful rock band Fozzy which will release its new album later this year. The group’s eighth full-length will feature the band’s latest single, Nowhere To Run (listen here), their third Top 10 hit on Active Rock Radio. The pop culture icon is also the host of The Rock Of Jericho weekly radio show on SiriusXM Octane and the widely popular Talk Is Jericho podcast, an Official Honoree at last year’s Webby Awards, as well as a four-time New York Times best-selling author and actor. For the past two decades, Chris Jericho has established himself as a multi-faceted talent with tens of millions of fans worldwide.

For Kuarantine, Jericho has surrounded himself with a group of top-notch touring musicians. Kent Slucher has been the powerhouse behind the kit at Luke Bryan’s shows for 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, which toured with KISS, Poison, Scorpions and more in the ’90s and has released two albums since reuniting in 2008.

Kuarantine has emerged to entertain listeners with their versions of KISS rarities and some good ol’ fashioned rock music during these unparalleled times.

    Great cover! From my 2nd favorite KISS album from the ’80s! (Right behind “Lick It Up”) Jericho gets it!

  • Darby Tracey on

    Love this KISS cover!!

  • genesraccoonwig on

    utter garbage

    • Doug R. on

      Don’t say that to Jericho, he might body slam you! And then you’ll be singing ~ OH NO “Tears Are Falling” 😉

    • Rattlehead on

      Gene, I concur with you. Cool concept of this KI$$ era, but poor performance. I’m sure it made your wig fly off your head!

    • genesraccoonwig on

      No Rattle – I use specially Kiss Wig Glue so my wig is securely fastened to my bald head.
      However, my ears bled hearing that song.

    What a colossal waste of resources.

  • shannon mehaffey on

    any Mudvayne fans on here? what a great group…I like them even more than Metallica…

    • Doug R. on

      Nope, but I am a fan of Mudcrutch, always been a huge fan of Tom Petty. And then there’s Puddle Of Mudd, who made 1 of the funniest songs ever – “She F–king Hates Me!” 😉 And of course there’s KISS’s album “Hotter Than Hell,” great album, but muddy as hell! Speaking of mud, any Woodstock fans on here? …zero sleep last night…
