White Wizzard have finally unveiled definite plans regarding their long anticipated new album.

Earlier this year band leader and bassist Jon Leon announced the return of classic members, vocalist Wyatt 'Screaming Demon' Anderson and guitarist James J LaRue, to the White Wizzard ranks, as well as confirming a new label deal with M-Theory Audio.

The band have spent much of 2017 crafting their finest offering to date, helmed once again by producer Ralph Patlan (Megadeth, UFO, Flotsam And Jetsam).

Entitled 'Infernal Overdrive', the fourth White Wizzard full-length, will be released on January 12th on CD and gatefold double vinyl. The album is over an hour long and captures all the ingredients of past White Wizzard work but expands upon the template with seasoned maturity, outstanding musicianship and a widening of influences including 70s hard rock and progressive rock/Metal.

Jon Leon tells us:

"We're very excited to finally release the official artwork and title for our new album, 'Infernal Overdrive'. Despite madness and delays we've persevered through hard work and determination and this album has finally come to be.

"This is, in everyone's opinion, a special album and what we feel is our best work to date. It has a lot of dynamics and amazing vocals by Wyatt with stunning lead guitar by James J LaRue."

And the band are also pleased to present the first lyric video from Infernal Overdrive, 'Storm The Shores'.

Leon continues:

"The song and video is a tribute to military personal and those that have fought and died for the ideals of peace and freedom all around the world. White Wizzard in no way is making any political statement with this song and video - it is simply a tribute to the men and women that have served and died in combat."

White Wizzard have announced a handful of special shows in America's south-west to kick off the new release as well as one-off show in London on March 31st, heating up the Underworld and kicking off a planned European tour.
