Band announce new album; check out the lead single below

2017 marks Wire's 40th year as a band, and not ones to indulge in nostalgia, they have announced a brand new album, entitled Silver/Lead. Above, you can check out lead single 'Short Elevated Period', which captures the band in as strong form as ever, providing a somewhat accessible introduction to the new album.

Silver/Lead is the band's 15th studio album and will be followed by an extensive set of tour dates to be announced later in the year. It is out on March 31 via the band's own pinkflag label.

You can read Graham Lewis of Wire's Baker's Dozen here and check out our Strange World Of... feature on the band here.
