Truth Cult have announced that their upcoming full-length, Walk The Wheel, is due out on March 3rd via Pop Wig Records. Throughout the record’s eleven tracks the Baltimore-based five-piece excel at blending passionate Dishchord-esque punk, hardcore bite and rock & roll swagger into a sound that’s all their own. To celebrate the album’s announcement, Truth Cult have shared their new song, Heavy Water. The song’s mid-tempo stomp is bursting with energy, while vocalist Paris Roberts and bassist & vocalist Emily Ferrara trade off between aggression and melody. 

Recorded live by producer & engineer J. Robbins at the Magpie CageWalk The Wheel strikes an impressive balance between ferocity and tunefulness. The album manages to capture the spark of Truth Cult‘s live performances while also allowing them to expand their sonic palette into exciting new dimensions. Drawing on everything from Lungfish, to the MC5, to The Replacements, Walk The Wheel pivots from hardcore ragers to soaring alt rock and beyond. The band’s agile sound matches the multitudes contained in their lyrics, with Ferrara and Roberts exploring loss, drugs, anger and existential complications as deftly as the music shifting around their words.
