Wire‘s new self-titled album is out next week and it’s another worthy addition to what has been an almost dud-free 40 year career. I’ll admit that when I saw the tracklist for the first album and saw the album opened with a song titled “Blogging,” I raised an eyebrow but it turns out to be one of the best songs on record, a funny (cynical) take on our current state of connectivity. Wire also has some of the most poppy moments the band have done since A Bell is a Cup Until It’s Struck. The only thing I don’t like about the record is that Graham Lewis doesn’t sing lead on any songs — the first time that’s happened since maybe Pink Flag. It’s well worth checking out and you can do so now via NPR.

Wire’s tour hits NYC for two shows: Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 3 and Bowery Ballroom on June 4Tickets are still available. Wire have expanded their tour since we last posted, and all dates are listed below
