“Life is like a wheel. Sooner or later, it always come around to where you started again.” – Stephen King

Looking back through history, the best music has always been born of brave acts of courage. It’s something Wheel frontman James Lascelles knows more than most, having relocated over a thousand miles from England to Finland to pursue music as a career. After meeting some likeminded musicians in Helsinki – namely bassist Mikko Määttä, drummer Santeri Saksala and guitarist Saku Mattila, eventually replaced by Roni Seppänen – Wheel was born.


Following on from the overwhelming success of their The Path and The Divide EPs, the quartet released their debut album Moving Backwards in February 2019. It’s an expansive and mind-melting collage of progressive rock, grunge and film score that twists and turns in ways no band has ever done before…

Word quickly spreading about Wheel’s knack for time-defying grooves, heavyweight orchestration and dark surrealism. Dissecting the media's portrayal of the nightmarish inhumanities of the Syrian refugee crisis on early single Please, they established themselves as a group very much unafraid to speak out. This time round, they’re holding their magnifying glass up to censorship and institutionalised mind control – an epidemic that’s sweeping the world, affecting just about every single human on the face of the Earth…

With what could very well be the rock debut of the year under their belts, dates with Swedish art-rockers Soen, Katatonia and festival appearances keeping them busy throughout summer, 2019 will be a landmark time for the quartet.
