THE WIZARDS: Sign with Fighter Records

Added 15 March 2017, 5:16 AM

Spanish 70's Hard & Heavy Rock band THE WIZARDS have inked a deal with Fighter Records for the release of their highly anticipated 2nd album "Full Moon in Scorpio" which will see the light next month of May.

Formed in Bilbao (Basque Country) back in 2013, these five outcasts decided to form a band after several intense sessions of drug abuse and hard liquor drinking marathons at backyard parties where the records from BLACK SABBATH, DANZIG, THE CULT, BLUE OYSTER CULT, PENTAGRAM, DEEP PURPLE, DIO, HORISONT and ELECTRIC WIZARD where played so loud neighbors would call the police sooner than expected.

In January 2014 THE WIZARDS recorded their first demo "Plagues". With only 4 songs recorded and a bunch of covers they are able to win the 26th edition of the local Pop-Rock contest Villa de Bilbao, and during 2015 they released their self-titled debut album through the band's own label Witch Records in collaboration with French label Geea Music.

The band played live in France, Basque Country and Spain opening for legendary bands and artists such as THE DICTATORS, IGGY POP or TURBO NEGRO, sharing stage with bands like PETER PAN SPEED ROCK, HORISONT, HYPNOS and so on. They were even invited to participate in festivals such as Madrid Stoner Scene Fest, Kriston Fest or Faan Fest.

During April 2016 THE WIZARDS entered Gaua Studio together with Brooklyn based produced Dean Rispler, current bass player for THE DICTATORS. During two weeks they recorded 8 songs that form their upcoming second album "Full Moon in Scorpio", engineered by Asier Zubelbu and mixed and mastered by Jesse Cannon (The Cure, The Misfits, Dillinger Escape Plan) at Cannon Found Soundation in Union City, New Jersey.

"Full Moon in Scorpio" contains 8 tracks of Hard & Heavy Rock attack, the lyrics dealing with such issues as the destruction of the veils that blind us, the vast concepts of space and time, the search for spiritual enlightenment and so on. For the band it truly means a step forward in their quest for world domination. The sound is bigger, the songs are better and the band is ready to destroy and fuck things up wherever their presence is needed. The western world is collapsing, lets dance over the fires while we howl at the Scorpio Moon. All in the name of Rock and Roll. All in the name of Lucifer!

Tracklist for "Full Moon in Scorpio" is as follows:

1. Avidya
2. Calliope (Cosmic Revelations)
3. Odinist
4. Stardust
5. Leaving the Past Behind
6. Halftones to Eternity
7. Who are You, Mr. Gurdjieff?
8. When We Were Gods

Release date for "Full Moon in Scorpio" will be May 16th through Fighter Records on CD & 12"LP format.
