Fans have long anticipated the return full-length from traditional metal heroes White Wizzard, who revamped their lineup last year to include the return of their strongest players to date, vocalist Wyatt “Screaming Demon” Anderson and guitarist James J. LaRue. Reviews have been overly positive and critics are recognizing the band firing on all cylinders by not only bringing back all of their expected true metal ingredients but flavoring this hour-plus ride with an expanded repertoire of moods and influences citing comparisons to Rush, Led Zeppelin and Metallica on certain tracks, all highlighted by the group’s seasoned musicianship and proper album production, courtesy of Ralph Patlan (Megadeth, UFO).
“We’re very excited to release yet another song from our new album via this lyric video created by LaRue. The lyrics are a bit of a sarcastic comment on modern times… as we watch technology and idiocy fuse together for one entertaining ride as humanity circles the drain into the abyss!” explains Jon Leon. “We bring it a bit heavier here and Wyatt sings his ass off on this one.”

“We are really proud of the new album and super excited to finally share it with the fans. We’re doing a special run of shows starting Wednesday and are super excited to announce that Devil’s Cut axe grinder Will Willner will be joining us on second guitar live. He complements LaRue perfectly and it’s a very strong tandem!
Next up, White Wizzard just shot a proper promo video for a more epic track, “Chasing Dragons,” so keep an eye out for that.
Infernal Overdrive, the band’s fourth full-length, will be released on all digital platforms, as well as CD and gatefold double colored vinyl (orange haze retail version or white exclusive from the band & label). Order now at www.m-theoryaudio.com/store

White Wizzard Release New Single And Video ” Breakout”

white wizzard

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.
