WHEEL Share Visualizer Video For Third Single ‘Disciple’

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Anglo-Finnish progressive metallers Wheel recently announced the release of their much-anticipated third studio album “Charismatic Leaders” on May 3rd, 2024. The album was meticulously crafted to meet Wheel’s ever-heightening benchmarks and recording with engineers/co-producers Daniel Bergstrand and Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah) stretched from August to December 2023.

The result, mixed by Forrester Savell, has consolidated all the gains of what came before: singer/guitarist James Lascelles, lead guitarist Jussi Turunen and drummer Santeri Saksala’s third album represents their heaviest and most conscious music to date.
Today, the band has launched the third single — the dramatic and brooding “Disciple,” accompanied by a visualizer video.

Vocalist and guitarist James Lascelles comments, “‘Disciple’ is a heated debate between a current and an ex-cult member and both believe they are saving the other — they are also utterly unwilling to consider the opposing point of view.  The discourse between these two made-up characters is a reflection of multiple topical debates in modern society and the writing process has given me a chance to reflect on my own behavior; particularly how I respond to ideas I strongly dislike.”

“Charismatic Leaders” clocks in at just under 50 minutes, and will be available as a Limited CD Digipak (also featuring the “Rumination” EP tracks as a bonus), and a Gatefold 180g LP, both featuring artwork from Lucas Mayer (Long Distance Calling, Blackout Problems).
