Achilles Wheel is a California band that blurs the lines between genres with a mix of infectious high energy dance beats and stark lyrical ballads. Roots Rock storytelling combined with dance psychedelia. Much like life itself, their music breathes in and out with joy and pain, hurtling forward like a wheel, intent on hope and love. They play hard as a way to break down walls and celebrate life. Their idealism is not diminished by the harsh light of the modern world as we struggle to live free and have a good time…and in the end – hopefully make a difference. Achilles Wheel fearlessly sings out to these times – to the here and now.
When the great train of humanity came off the rails in 2020 and left a smoking crater where live music used to be, the band decided to release a massive Live 3 CD set titled ‘Live On Wesley’s Road’, taken from shows recorded in 2019. A scant 3 hours and twenty five minutes of great live music. Some of these songs were brand new at the time and will be released again on an upcoming studio release. But on ‘Wesley’s Road’ you can hear Achilles Wheel doing what they do best, squeezing and pulling on the music as if searching for how it works best. If you’re a fan of live recordings ‘Live On Wesley’s Road’ is a must have.
We wish you all good health as live music finds its way forward. There will indeed be music and good times on up the road.

Alex is excited to join Achilles Wheel for the first time since 2017 for what is sure to be a night full of revelry.
