Los Angeles traditional heavy metallers WHITE WIZZARD have gone into the studio to start recording their new album.
Drummer GIOVANNI DURST, along with bassist and founding member JON LEON, are the first members to lay down their parts for the follow-up to WHITE WIZZARD's 2010 debut full-length, OVER THE TOP. The band is once again working with producer RALPH PATLAN (MEGADETH, UFO, MICHAEL SCHENKER, BONDED BY BLOOD).
JON LEON posts from the studio:
"Jon from the studio here... Gio kicked ass and laid down five drum tracks yesterday. The band expects to finish drums today and start bass tomorrow. In case you're interested in the album title, I wrote a song called 'Flying Tigers' as a tribute to the P-40 fighters of World War II. Everyone has seen those planes with the tiger shark painted on the side... It is a bit of a metal tribute to some old heroes... More news soon!!"
The new album from WHITE WIZZARD is set to be released in mid-2011 on Earache Records.
WHITE WIZZARD recently released a new single, SHOOTING STAR, which also includes a cover of DIO's legendary anthem, "We Rock". All profits from the single go to the Children of the Night charity.
