The Age Of Metal had the chance to speak with Los Angeles based heavy metal band WHITE WIZZARD last week at the Century Media parking lot sale event in L.A. Listen below to hear the band talk about their new album The Devil's Cut, their lineup changes, and their tour plans for later this year.
White Wizzard recently announced a special album release show, at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood on July 9th. The band will be celebrating the release of their brand new studio album, The Devils Cut, out in North America on June 25th via Century Media/Earache Records. White Wizzard will be joined at the event by melodic power metallers DEATH DEALER.
Bassist and mainman Jon Leon comments: "White Wizzard are really thrilled to play a dual CD release show with the awesome new band, Death Dealer. We have played with CAGE and ROSS THE BOSS in the past so this should be a great local show for both bands. We are also excited to use this show to debut new material from our new album, The Devils Cut, out on June 25th via Century Media. Make sure you come out and support!"

White Wizzard recently confirmed the first dates for a European headlining tour, which kicks off on September 27th in Brighton, England. The band will then be moving on to continental Europe, with dates due to be announced soon.
Jon Leon commented: "We are very excited to get back over to Europe. Giovanni and I have worked hard to get a solid line-up of guys that will actually tour and stick it out and to make White Wizzard a stable entity for the fans. We appreciate all of our fans being so patient and supportive. What we have now is a line-up that has been together over a year that is very dedicated and serious. The fans will finally get to see the five guys that recorded the album and we promise we will not disappoint. This is only the beginning as we are already writing the next album and we are hungry to finally see the band through to its intended vision. If you dig the album, just wait until you see this group of guys live. We are on a mission in its first stages and we hope you come along for the ride. It is going to be a blast!!!"
