Wheel begin North American tour with Vola; release ‘Rumination’ instrumental EP


(Wheel with Daniel Bergstrand and Fredrik Thordendal)


Anglo-Finnish progressive metallers Wheel are about to begin a North American tour as support to Vola, marking their first shows in the continent since supporting Apocalyptica in 2022. To coincide with these shows, the band have released the instrumental versions of last years Rumination EP, and you can stream those across all digital services here: https://wheelband.lnk.to/Rumination-Instrumentals

As mentioned, the band are about to begin their North American tour in a matter of days. Prior to that, Wheel have been hard at work on their third studio album, tentatively scheduled for a Spring 2024 release. James checks in from the studio as follows: “We are currently in Sweden at Catch 33 studios working with Daniel Bergstrand and Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah) working on our third album and so far, everything is sounding pretty incredible. We finished doing the drum tracks for the album today and will be working on bass until we leave for the USA. Everything else will be completed after the tour.


To be honest, the US tour is going to feel like a very welcome break after all the intense long days we have been doing lately and we are all looking forward to hearing Vola smash out ‘Paper Wolf’ while we are there!”

Following the bands powerful debut album ‘Moving Backwards’ in 2019, they returned in 2021 with the punchy ‘Resident Human’, a record that was packed with vivid vistas of expanding and contracting sounds, whilst honing the bands intensity into something compelling and energetic.
