White Wizzard Comments On New Album “Flying Tigers”

Los Angeles traditional heavy metal act White Wizzard is preparing for the release of the new album “Flying Tigers,” which hits stores in Europe on September 19th and in North America on November 15th.

The band’s bassist and mainman Jon Leon recently took some time to speak to Classic Rock magazine about the meaning behind “Flying Tigers,” a tribute to a legendary World War II fighter squadron. Jon Leon comments:

“When I wrote the music and lyrics for this song, it just seemed so visual that it lent itself to being the album title. The Flying Tigers was the name given to the First American Volunteer Group of the Chinese Air Force, and they took on the Japanese, who had far superior aircraft, with incredible success. Their kill to death ratio was amazing.”

White Wizzard is also offering a free download of the track “Starchild” at this location.

“Flying Tigers” features the core White Wizzard line-up of bassist, songwriter, and founding member Jon Leon, drummer Giovanni Durst, and studio vocalist Wyatt Anderson, who featured on the band’s debut album, “Over the Top.” The album was once again recorded with producer Ralpha Patlan in Phoenix, Arizona.
