True American Metal band WHITE WIZZARD finally unveil concrete plans regarding their long anticipated new album.
Band leader and bassist Jon Leon earlier this year announced the return of classic members, vocalist Wyatt “Screaming Demon” Anderson and guitarist James J. LaRue, to the ranks of White Wizzard, as well as a new label deal with M-Theory Audio. The band have spent much of 2017 crafting their finest offering to date, helmed once again by producer Ralph Patlan (Megadeth, UFO, Flotsam and Jetsam). Entitled Infernal Overdrive, the band’s fourth full-length, will be released January 12th on CD and gatefold double vinyl. The album is over an hour long and captures all the ingredients of past White Wizzard work but expands upon the template with seasoned maturity, outstanding musicianship and a widening of influences including ’70s hard rock and progressive rock/metal.
“We’re very excited to FINALLY release the official artwork and title for our new album, Infernal Overdrive. Despite madness and delays we’ve persevered through hard work and determination and this album has finally come to be,” explains Jon Leon. “This is, in everyone’s opinion, a special album and what we feel is our best work to date. It has a lot of dynamics and amazing vocals by Wyatt with stunning lead guitar by James J. LaRue.”
Expectant fans have waited long enough for the first taste of new music. The band is pleased to present the first lyric video, Storm the Shores, from Infernal Overdrive.
The band explains: “The song and video is a tribute to military personal and those that have fought and died for the ideals of peace and freedom all around the world. White Wizzard in no way is making any political statement with this song and video – it is simply a tribute to the men and women that have served and died in combat.“
