Glitter Wizard, or G Wiz as those close call them, recently recorded the EP Kiss the Boot at Kitten Robot studio with Paul Roessler (T.S.O.L., Pat the Bunny, James Williamson, Lords of Altamont) which dropped March 7th, 2023, on the Kitten Robot label. The EP is something of a departure for the band, as they lace up their platforms and head straight for the jugular of early ‘70s glitter rock and junkshop glam. The first single, “She’s a Star,” releases on Valentine’s Day. The album, mixed by Screamin’ Lord Duff (Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs, Prima Donna, Thor, Jesters of Destiny), has the band covering Bowie’s “Suffragette City” as if they were Gary Glitter, and unleashing new glitter anthems such as “Pogo Tonight” and “Glitterati.” Meanwhile, for the fans who prefer their Wizards with dirt in their teeth and riding a Harley, the band’s popular 2012 LP Hunting Gatherers receives the deluxe reissue treatment from the Ripple Music label later in 2023.
Glitter Wizard have assembled a legion of Glitterati touring the US and Europe, playing club shows and festivals like Roadburn, Muskelrock, Duna Jam, Desert Fest, Burger Boogaloo, SXSW, Desert Daze, Psycho de Mayo and Heavy Days in Doomtown along the way. Their music has been featured in film, podcasts, the X Games, and even a low budget porno. Glitter Wizard have recorded four full-length albums and three EPs with Donny Newenhouse (The Coachwhips, Holly Golightly, Dead Ships, Hot Lunch) and are constantly working to keep the real spirit of rock n’ roll undead and feasting on the brains of young and old alike.
