Los Angeles-based traditional metallers WHITE WIZZARD will be in the studio May 1 and May 2 to record a new song called “Torpedo Of Truth”. According to the band, “It will feature beastly rhythm, thunderous melodic bass and some serious shred at a whole new level… Anybody that was whining about the lack of more shreddy leads on the ‘Flying Tigers’ album better get ready to get an injection of some serious shit. A ‘Torpedo Of Truth’ right up your ass!”
WHITE WIZZARD recently confirmed a special show in Tokyo, Japan in support of their latest album, “Flying Tigers”.
WHITE WIZZARD will perform at Shibuya Club Quattro on May 12, and as a special treat for fans, the band will be joined by vocalist Wyatt Anderson, who sang on “Flying Tigers” as well as the band’s first full-length album, “Over The Top”
Commented WHITE WIZZARD mainman and bassist Jon Leon: “To our fans: We have a big show coming up in Tokyo, Japan on May 12, 2012. This is to support the Japanese release of ‘Flying Tigers’. Wyatt ‘Screaming Demon’ Anderson has agreed to do this show for our Japanese fans and we will be performing the entire ‘Starman’s Son’ six-song epic from ‘Flying Tigers’, as well as many more songs from all releases. We hope to film some great footage and we are excited for the experience!”
WHITE WIZZARD released its new album, “Flying Tigers”, on September 19 via Earache Records. The CD features twelve new tracks and expands on the band’s traditional heavy metal blueprint, with songs ranging from fist-pumping NWOBHM-style anthems, through the arena rock power of “Starchild”, to a six-track epic concept piece featuring science-fiction and philosophical elements tied together with a progressive vibe.
“Flying Tigers” features the core WHITE WIZZARD lineup 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 Ralph Patlan in Phoenix, Arizona.
WHITE WIZZARD recently recruited Jake Dreyer as the band’s new second guitarist.
