Bordeaux-based noise/post-hardcore unit W!ZARD share their new video "Despite" - an acerbic criticism of the consumerist lifestyle and its denial of environmental problems - for their new single released via A Tant Rêver Du Roi. Striking and corrosive!

W!ZARD are the result of the brilliant association of noise, post-punk and post-hardcore, unified by an incredible and liberating energy. Influenced by artists like Daughters, Idles or At The Drive In, they found their own musical signature by associating hot-tempered vocals, pounding drums and a howling guitar. With this new song an video "Despite" - which only appears on a live session and has never been officially released before - W!ZARD depict the self-destruction of humanity. An intense anger directed to a world that is heading towards its own end. "Despite" is a warning, a duty of conscience. The video clip is close to an artistic performance and was made from scratch by the band. The single is available for streaming and download via A Tant Rêver Du Roi at this location.

Recorded and mixed at Apiary Studio (Laval, France) by Amaury Sauvé, W!ZARD's new EP 'Definitely Unfinished' fiercely blends noise, post-punk and post-hardcore to produce this bold violent and depressive sound. "With 'Definitely Unfinished’, we could develop the ideas we wanted for the lyrics or for the sound of the instruments, with a raw freedom in the writing process, keeping the music clear and understandable despite its darkness" comment the band.
