LA's traditional metal heroes, WHITE WIZZARD were the special guests on last week's edition of Rock This. Originally aired live from NYC last Friday, over 22,000 people watched as singer Wyatt Anderson, drummer Jesse Appelhans and guitarist Chad Yasuhara hung out with host, Jen Meola, chugged some beers and talked metal for an hour and a half. They touched upon the LA metal scene, Mexican thrash metal, their first NYC show and what the future holds in store for the band.
The interview can be accessed via the Rock This on demand section. To watch, go to http://www.livestream.com/rockthis.
The Village Voice proclaims: "All Hail WHITE WIZZARD and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal." Read a great write-up that heralds the band as "potential lead players" in the traditional metal movement that is gaining ground across the world: http://earache.com/archive/whitewizzard/VillageVoice_Aug2509_AllHailWW.jpg
WHITE WIZZARD's first NYC appearance as part of the Brooklyn Thunderfest went over in a big way. The headbangers were out in full force and an old school feel was in the air. Check out some exclusive photos of WHITE WIZZARD on stage and off from that very metal day at http://earache.tumblr.com/
WHITE WIZZARD are putting the finishing touches on their upcoming full length release with producer RALPH PATLAN (MEGADETH, UFO, MICHAEL SCHENKER). The as-yet-untitled album is set for release in early 2010 and continues on from the soon to be released HIGH SPEED GTO mini album, which was recorded with the band's old line-up.
The HIGH SPEED GTO mini album is due to be released in the USA on
September 8th, but you can get the European import now exclusively from the
