“Twisted Wheel have that magical quality that some bands can only dream of, the ability to mesmerise you. The passion, the energy, the tunes, it’s all-natural, it’s unforced, they don’t even have to try because it’s just how it is, it’s meant to be, Jonny belongs on that stage. I was stood there thinking from start to finish what I guess many have thought before me ‘How the fuck are these not absolutely MASSIVE’.
Twisted Wheel are proving they are firmly back in the game, with their strong live presence, melodies and musicianship and Brown’s poignant lyrics, there is a space waiting right at the top of the modern music industry once again, for Twisted Wheel.” – Northern Exposure
TWISTED WHEEL continue the fast momentum towards album number three with the announcement of their latest single ‘Black and Blue’; out today on all major digital platforms.
Not shying away from the major issues today, the band remain as culturally relevant as ever. The latest track is a story of self-medication and depression, coupled with a tribute to the genius of American poet Sylvia Plath. After overdosing on medication, she reflected: “I blissfully succumbed to the whirling blackness that I honestly believed was eternal oblivion”; the same eternal oblivion which has left a seemingly irreparable scar on the lives of young people today who continue their lives under a melancholic sky of darkness and uncertainty. The willingness to reflect upon the issues that universally affect young people including suicide and mental illness through the medium of art is something that the band feel is important to get people talking and inspire those who feel they have nothing left to give.
The band state: “Black and Blue is essentially the story of somebody who has lost faith in everything and everyone, feeling like the world has beaten them down. Despite this, the feel of the track is actually very bright and melodic, giving a strong sense that things can get better”.
Following another successful year of sold out gigs across the country and major festival appearances at Reading + Leeds, Kendal Calling and Y-Not, the band head towards their last set of 2019 dates including two recently announced support slots with Liam Gallagher on his latest arena tour in Newcastle and Birmingham.
Next year, the band will release their highly anticipated third album: ‘Satisfying The Ritual’ (20 March 2020), which will feature the tracks ‘Nomad Hat’, ‘DNA’, ‘Rebel’ and new single ‘Black & Blue’ among its tracklisting.
