UK HEADLINE SHOW ANNOUNCED FOR OCT. 23 IN MANCHESTER
Electric Wizard have revealed a second track, "SadioWitch," from their forthcoming full-length album Time to Die (Spinefarm Records, Sept. 30) via Pitchfork (http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/17051-electric-wizard-sadiowitch/).
Featuring the line 'the black drug took my soul away," "SadioWitch" will be accompanied by a video, which is currently being edited. Little is known about the clip, although it is believed to feature (encouragingly) both "nudity" and "explosions."
"SadioWitch is about death by lust and indulgence. As life becomes disillusioning it is reassuring to turn to 'life's luxuries'... sex and drugs. But, of course, overindulgence leads to emaciation, weakness and death. The song is short and sweet just like this particular form of death. There are many choices but only one outcome. Choose wisely..." - Jus Oborn
A limited edition 7" version of SadioWitch is also being planned, with a previously unreleased piece of music on the B-side.
Time to Die is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment, and their first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.
A UK headline show has been announced for Oct. 23 at The Ritz in Manchester. Tickets are available here: http://www.seetickets.com/event/electric-wizard/the-ritz/808239. A full supporting bill will be announced shortly.
