WHITE WIZZARD Release “Storm Of Shores Lyric Video; Announce New Album!

If you are an old school metalhead and you haven’t heard White Wizzard you are in for an amazing treat. Formed in 2007 White Wizzard hails from Los Angeles, California. Tired of the down-tuned screamo metal that seemed to be everywhere, bass player and guitarist/songwriter Jon Leon formed White Wizzard as an outlet to release music he thought needed to be heard. In a modern age when guitar solos and old school falsetto vocals were being lost they brought back a nearly extinct sound. Though the lineup has changed on almost every album, Jon Leon’s songwriting has remained consistent and the name White Wizzard has progressed. Jon Leon is synonymous with White Wizzard. However, on the upcoming album ‘Infernal Overdrive the band brings back classic members, vocalist Wyatt “Screaming Demon” Anderson and guitarist James J LaRue, rejoining with bassist and band leader Jon Leon for the group’s finest record to date.
