Holiday rock ensemble THE WIZARDS OF WINTER are giving fans a taste of the upcoming third album, The Christmas Dream, with the new track “Handel’s Torch,” available online now.

“It is often said that prog rock music is the classical music of our day,” says founder and keyboardist Scott Kelly. “The band thought it would be fun to put a rock spin on one of the great classical tunes associated with Christmas. ‘Handel’s Torch’ is a nod to the Hallelujah Chorus. If you listen closely you will hear several other classic melodies woven through the piece as well. It is a blast to play and we think it rocks. We hope our fans think it rocks too.”

The Christmas Dream contains 10 new original songs and is a rocking holiday sleigh ride that crosses musical boundaries from prog metal to contemporary, appealing to a broad and diverse audience. The Christmas Dream is THE WIZARDS OF WINTER’s strongest release thus far. Pre-orders for The Christmas Dream are available now at www.wizardsofwinter.com/store.

THE WIZARDS OF WINTER – now in their tenth year – will kick off their annual holiday tour on November 13. The band’s classical and progressive-influenced rock music is woven throughout a theatrical holiday-themed show, performed in an intimate setting.

THE WIZARDS OF WINTER feature former members of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rainbow, Blue Oyster Cult, Ted Nugent and The Irish Tenors and have added even more new talent to their ranks this year, including violinist and backup vocalist Kornelia Rad (Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra), lead vocalist and auxiliary keyboardist Alexis Smith, and last but not least, lead guitarist Steve Brown (Trixter, Def Leppard, Dennis DeYoung, Rock of Ages).
