Progressive metallers Wheel have shared the video for their new single, ‘Where The Pieces Lie’, the second track to be taken from their upcoming debut album, Moving Backwards, out February 22nd via Odyssey Music Network.
With beautifully shot black and white footage accentuating the jarring and pensive atmosphere of the track, the video sees the band perform amid violent outbursts of emotion. Throughout, intense verses build into explosive choruses, forming a fierce and unnerving work laden with suspense.
“We made the video for the song with the legendary Kakkis and Kimbe, who we have worked with several times before. We wanted to express the isolation, frustration, anger and bitterness in the lyrics through the video’s story and this was fantastically realised by Lassi Hurskainen, the video’s extremely pissed off protagonist,” the band explain.
“We wanted to juxtapose suspense with the internal struggle of our main character; who is clearly suffering and desperate for a release from his burdens. For many of us, life is turbulent, chaotic and isolating; there is nothing else to do but keep marching forwards.”
‘Where The Pieces Lie’ is the second track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, Moving Backwards, following their debut single ‘Vultures’, which has already amassed over 250,000 streams on Spotify alone.
