White Wizzard releases “Strike the Iron”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 1:04 PM (PST)

White Wizzard California Metallers White Wizzard are streaming “Strike the Iron” off of their forthcoming album The Devils Cut, which is expected to drop on June 3 in Europe and on June 25 in North America  via Earache/Century Media Records.



White Wizzard bassist Jon Leon had this to say about “Strike the Iron”:

“‘Strike the Iron’ is my favorite WHITE WIZZARD song I have ever written, along with ‘The Sun Also Rises’, which closes the new record.  I am very proud of the arrangement.  I had the verse melody in my head and chorus line before I even picked up the guitar and started writing it.  It has stunning leads by Jake and Will, and Joseph interpreted the vocal melody fantastically and gave so much character to it.  This song really exemplifies everything this line-up is capable of and everyone’s talents really came through on it.  It never lets up and we are very excited to get this one out there live…I expect it to be our opening song for the next couple of years.”

Check out the previously released “Kings of the Highway” as well as The Devils Cut tracklisting here.

Arsis band photoJim Malone, the vocalist and guitarist for the Virginia death metal act, Arsis, has announced that we wouldn’t be on the tour with Firewind and White Wizzard. However the band will still play with a substitute. Malone on the subject stated:

Due to professional and personal commitments I am unable to tour with Arsis at this time. For the upcoming tour with Firewind, rather than drop off the tour entirely, we’ve decided to hire live musicians, some of whom have long been associated with my band. I have given Nick and Noah my blessing and am certain the lineup will be great. My sincerest apologies to anyone who is annoyed or disappointed by my absence. Please go and support Arsis and check out some of our new songs, which they will be playing every night!

Arsis’s latest album, “Starve For The Devil,” was released in February 2010 through Nuclear Blast.
