This Friday, January 12th, will see the M-Theory Audio release of the highly anticipated album ‘Infernal Overdrive‘ from the reactivated White Wizzard.
Today, the band is debuting the brand new lyric video for the record’s title track, a song with everything the band is about: galloping riffs, soaring vocals, and guitar solos.
Bassist and guitarist Jon Leon commented on the cut, saying:
“We’re very excited to release yet another song from our new album via this lyric video created by [guitarist James J.] 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! We bring it a bit heavier here and Wyatt sings his ass off on this one.”
The fervor for a new full-length album from White Wizzard has been explosive and ‘Infernal Overdrive‘ is sure to deliver. With what may be the band’s strongest line up to date, and their uncompromising NWOBHM-influenced metallic barrage, White Wizzard is back with a vengeance. This new visualizer (streaming below) for its title cut is quick to establish this fact.
“‘Infernal Overdrive’ is just a fun, heavy, kick-you-in-the-teeth song that is lyrically a tongue in cheek sarcasm on the marriage of technology and stupidity as humankind circles the drain into the abyss…. enjoy!”
