Band share second track from upcoming album

Wire have shared another track from their upcoming album, Silver/Lead. The track is called 'Diamonds In Cups' and can be heard above.

The track takes up an almost glam strut in its guitars and drum patterns. It features on the band's 15th studio album which is set for release on March 31, with Wire celebrating 40 years as a band this year. To celebrate accordingly, the band will play an extensive set of live shows across the year. This will include a series of their DRILL festivals taking place in LA, Berlin and Leeds. You can get all the details on those, as well as other live shows, here.
