Biography

 

Wheel are based in Helsinki, Finland and have been working together since 2015 when former guitarist, Saku introduced James Lascelles (singer/guitarist) to Mikko Määttä  (bassist) and Santeri Saksala (drummer).

James had some home demos that he had been working on which became the foundation for The Path EP (2017) after months of tweaking and re-arranging by the band. The EP was originally planned to be a demo and was recorded in only two days but the tracking process went so well that they decided to get the songs professionally mixed by one of Finland's most talented producers, Jesse Vainio.

Saku Mattila left the band to pursue other projects at the beginning of 2018 and was replaced by Roni Seppänen.

Wheel are known for their meticulous attention to detail, a fondness for unusual meters and poly-rhythms and their explosive live shows. They have already toured Germany and the UK and are planning more shows in 2018 to support their upcoming release, The Divide EP; this will be out on 1.6.2018.
