Trounce have shared with us a lyric video and song from their upcoming album The Seven Crowns, titled “The Wheel.”

The record will be out October 20 via Hummus Records on triple vinyl, double CD, and digitally. The record is made up of both studio recordings and live songs from their set at Roadburn Festival, the same festival that initially inspired the formation of the band. “The Wheel” will be released digitally on June 23, a few months ahead of the full record.

“‘The Wheel’ serves as the final track on the studio album. representing the culmination of this songwriting session in 2020,” says project mastermind Jonathan Nido. “It holds a special significance as the first song to introduce the captivating universe of Trounce. The composition embodies the essence of Trounce, blending catchy melodies with powerful blast beats, epic choruses, introspective moments, and an intense, heavy, mid-tempo section. It truly encompasses the diverse elements that define our sound. Interestingly, ‘The Wheel’ remains faithful to its live performance, delivering an almost identical experience on stage. Towards the end, the song takes a dramatic turn with an apocalyptic choir skillfully crafted by my trusted collaborator and mixing engineer, Kevin Galland. In those final moments, his synthesizers and vocals come together to create a haunting and atmospheric conclusion.”
