White Wizzard Unveils Artwork For New Album "The Devils Cut"

White Wizzard has revealed the artwork for upcoming new album, "The Devils Cut," which is due to be released on June 3rd in Europe via Earache Records, and June 25th in the USA via Century Media/Earache Records.

"The Devils Cut" is the band's third full-length release, and features artwork by Cameron Davis, who is known for his work as lead character designer and illustrator for the Guitar Hero video game series. White Wizzard bassist and mainman Jon Leon comments:

"It was great to work with the amazing artist Cameron Davis again, who also did the art for our album 'Over the Top.' Cameron and I live in the same building here in LA and he is a really talented guy. When he presented me the piece for the album cover, I knew right away it was the one. It has amazing imagery and depth and is very artful, while making a tongue-in-cheek statement poking some fun at organized religion, which is something I feel strongly about.

"Some of my lyrics on this album and previous albums focus on not letting religion and the cult of group belief blind you from the preservation of thinking for yourself and being an individual, so it ties into that very well, as the statement of the piece is how religion is imprisonment for the soul and how, even within its own confines, it forces its believers into blind group submission. I think any of us that went to catholic school as a child can relate to that nun!!! It has 'classic metal cover' all over it and it just blew my mind.

"I look forward to this imagery being out there and am proud to have it be a part of White Wizzard. To have art of this quality to convey the visual aspects of the band is just fantastic."
