Are they glam? Are they metal? Stoner rock? Psych? Prog? For over a decade, people have been trying to pin down GLITTER WIZARD but this band refuses to be pigeonholed. As they play a unique brand of freak rock and roll that Julian Cope once described as “unashamedly glamorous hard rock” and he wasn't wrong. These San Francisco heshers have been wowing rock fans with heavy riffs and a high octane stage show that combines it all: psych, metal, punk, glam and prog into a sound that is both hard to categorize and easily recognizable as their own. Pulling influences from the entire heavy rock canon, G Wiz combines scorching guitar riffs and spaced out synths to create something familiar, yet entirely new and weird. Their brand new album, Opera Villains, released on April 20th 2019 with Heavy Psych Sounds, brings the heat that we've come to expect from GLITTER WIZARD but adds a layer of dramatism that we haven't heard before!
With their unique brand of the glam punk and stoner metal prog tunes, GLITTER WIZARD have won over audiences touring the US and Europe, playing club shows and festivals like Roadburn, DesertFest, BurgerBoogaloo, SXSW, Desert Daze, Psycho de Mayo or Heavy Days in Doomtown along the way. Their music has been featured in film, podcasts, the X Games, and even in a low budget porno. This Spring, GLITTER WIZARD will embark on an extensive European tour, kicking off May 30th at Musklerock Festival in Sweden!
