Winter so far has been full of some very exciting announcements and The Wiz couldn't be happier to share it with all y'all. Anticipating our fourth full-length album released, Livin' Oblivion (Listenable Records), we just announced our release show at The Rickshaw Theater in Vancouver BC on February 16, 2018!!! With an impressive lineup behind us: Mean Jeans (Portland OR), local buds in WAINGRO and Killer Deal, the night should be a great li'l time. We are beyond stoked to play the new tunes for everyone and kick off this album and a new year in the best way we know how - live and with a party. FEBRUARY 2018 WEEEOOO!!!! Find more information on our Facebook event page and tickets at ShowPass.
The album artwork for Livin' Oblivion was done by the amazing Eliran Kantor (Berlin, Germany). His work is astounding and includes many collaborations with other bands in the heavy scene (Crowbar, Testament). Check. It. Out.
OH WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!! Wiz is beyond stoked to present Black Wizard's first official music video "Feast or Famine", featured on upcoming Livin' Oblivion. Decibel Magazine was kind enough to debut the video early this week and so far the internet has been kind to us. Filmed and edited by Rob Zawistowski, him and our man Daniel Stokes produced a sassy little collaboration together. Filmed at The Wise Hall in Vancouver, BC with the gracious help of Milton Stille the video is the first of many more audio visual to come. Wiz definitely appreciates the YouTube comment love: "This is the last level when you beat Jesus in guitar hero..."
Find this gem and more on the MEDIA page for quick reference.
Wiz has a surplus of mostly small t-shirts up on our Bandcamp INCLUDING our Young Wisdom skull design in both green and orange print. Blowing out all of our older designs and leftover sizes for the cozy fall season ;)
Been a hot minute since tour season ended this summer but the boys have been busy brewing up some new and exciting things these past few months. Playing some gigs close to home in the next couple of weeks and Wiz is stoked. LESS THAN A WEEK TIL WE PLAY THE VOGUE THEATRE WITH FU MANCHU, TRUCKFIGHTERS, EARTHLESS, MOTHERSHIP & THE DEAD KENNEDYS! We hear there's about 100 or so tickets left...don't sleep!
Wrapped up another wicked tour Thursday night in Carrboro, North Carolina. Thank you so much to Weedeater & Serial Hawk for being such a rad crew. Made some serious buds for life there...we love y'all! Thanks so much to everyone who came out, we'll leave y'all with these spicy snaps in the meantime from the last half of tour.
Made it to Halifax and had an amazing night playing to the best Canadian crowd @ The Oasis. Keep your eyes peeled, we play Montreal @ Katacombes tomorrow and have a few more dates through Eastern Canada before this tour winds back down into more Amurrica!
How most of our time is spent in the van!
Well, the North American tour with Weedeater and Serial Hawk has begun! Just a couple of shots so far as the Wiz starts summer off right and tasty.

Bands and artists bid farewell to another DIY space recently at Studio Vostok's last show in Vancouver with BRASS, Storc and Waingro making it a night to remember.

Check out the article here by Milton Stille with more photos by local spitfire Taya Fraser.
