UPDATE on 08.10.2013: Parting ways with a vocalist mid-tour is usually not a good idea as White Wizzard discovered. Following the drama involving their former singer Joseph Michael who was fired from the band, the heavy metallers have made the decision to cancel the rest of the European tour they had planned for this month. The accusations between the two parties continue. Furthermore, Joseph Michael is planning to sue Jon Leon for slander and defamation.

US metallers White Wizzard have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
"We had a great time at Download 2010 as singer Michael Gremio filled in for us after Wyatt left the band when we needed someone quick. Unfortunately, Mike has many commitments in Nebraska and cannot move to LA to become a permanent member of the band. He has a family, children and other aspirations. We wish Mike the best. We are already close to naming the new singer in the band. All things are moving forward and we cannot wait for the European tour.
The next full length album has been written and we hope to record it with the new line up at years end. The boys have been rehearsing and the new material is sounding amazing. Lewis Stephans is on his way to becoming a rock GOD on guitar and just getting better and better everyday. We are very thrilled with his progress and the band has never felt better. There is a certain magic in the room that should just grow in time. Giovanni and Jon are locking in tightness and heaviness. The band is on fire!
