White Wizzard has released a new single and video. Original line up reunites for the first time since 2008 to play Frost and Fire festival in California in October.
The band will also be reuniting its original 2008 line up of singer James Paul Luna, guitarist James J LaRue, bassist Jon Leon and drummer Tyler Meahl to play an exclusive show at the Frost and Fire festival in Ventura Ca on October 8th, 2016, including performing the original High Speed GTO EP.
He was there at the beginning when I started this and it’s only fitting he returns to see the band into the future. The song is about staying true to yourself and questioning the Establishment – be that religion, the government or anything else which constrains the human spirit. Of course, in typical WW tradition, our video is a very tongue-in-cheek take on that message and we had a real blast making it!
“We are further excited to be joining up with James Luna and Tyler Meahl to play Frost and Fire festival in Ventura Ca. We’d been talking about doing something together for some time now, however existing commitments had made it impossible, so it’s great that we can finally get together in October. We will perform the original High Speed GTO EP along with some other songs from that era, and maybe a couple of covers, and depending on how everything goes, we may look at doing more stuff together. White Wizzard is an evolving entity of myself and James J LaRue that will keep making music, while staying open to all possibilities and we are excited for the future, whatever that may hold. “
James J LaRue adds “I’m totally excited for the release of this new song and video. Jon was tireless getting the sounds he wanted, and I lost a lot of sleep animating and putting this video together. While I waited on video file renders, I was practising along with the original EP, getting a head start on having these songs PERFECT for everyone at Frost and Fire. A lot of my friends are playing that show. It’s a very classic lineup all around.
