Well, here’s tenacity for you. Jon Leon, the beleaguered bass player and sole constant member of White Wizzard since the retro-styled LA metal band was formed in 2007, has just announced the group’s latest lineup.
As usual, Jon Leon will be handling the low-end in White Wizzard MkVIII, and he’ll be joined by: Jon Leon on lead guitar, Jon Leon on rhythm guitar and…Jon Leon on vocals. Oh, and drummer Devin Lebsack (who you can watch performing with Hed (PE) here).
Yes, a mere five months on from the Devil’s Cut lineup of the band’s implosion in a blizzard of angry Facebook posts, Leon has decided to forge ahead more or less alone, at least for now. Indeed, the new-look White Wizzard released its first single on March 18th too: a speedy Maiden-esque rocker called Marathon of Dreams (which you can listen to on Bandcamp here).
In a statement made on Facebook earlier this evening, Leon revealed just who was in White Wizzard when this new track was recorded: “So the cat is out of the bag…..Jon Leon is now singing as well! The new song is out now. Track credits as follows:
Jon Leon-Vocals, Rhythm and Lead Guitar, Bass guitar
Devin Lebsack-Drums and Percussion
Jacky Vincent (Falling in Reverse) -2nd guitar solo”
At least he’s being consistent; unless he develops multiple personality disorder, this lineup of White Wizzard should suit him fine and dandy.
Well hello there!
