Artpop punks Wire turn 40 this year and, never ones for nostalgia, will celebrate with a new album. Silver/Lead will be Wire’s 15th full-length and will be out March 31 via their own Pinkflag imprint. (That’s less than a year since 2016’s Nocturnal Koreans.)

1. Playing Harp For The Fishes
2. Short Elevated Period
3. Diamonds in Cups
4. Forever & A Day
5. An Alibi
6. Sonic Lens
