To kick off the new year in style, GLITTER WIZARD are unleashing more details about their fourth album ‘Opera Villains’ on Heavy Psych Sounds, and release a first song right now!

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.
