WHITE WIZZARD Issues ‘Infernal Overdrive’ Title Track Lyric Video; Live Dates


(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Lead Journalist/Writer, RiffRelevant.com)

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 are 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 / 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 are back with a vengeance.  This new visualizer (streaming below) for its title cut is quick to establish this fact.

Leon adds: “‘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!
