Last year, UK doom legends Electric Wizard returned with the great Wizard Bloody Wizard. They were supposed to come to the US for Austin-area fest Sound on Sound last year too, but that fest was sadly cancelled. Things started looking up again when the band announced a slot on Austin's Levitation festival for 2018, and they have now added more US dates happening right after that festival.

They play San Francisco's Warfield on April 30 (tickets) and NYC's Playstation Theater on May 4 (tickets). Both shows go on sale Friday (2/16) at 10 AM local time with various presales starting beforehand. No word on any other US dates yet but we'll let you know if that changes.

UPDATE: They also play LA and Portland. All dates are listed below.

Late last year, Electric Wizard frontman Jus Oborn told us his 10 favorite albums of 2017, and there's some really interesting, obscure stuff on there that's very worth checking out.
