Wire are “Primed And Ready” on new single from forthcoming LP (listen)
Punk/post-punk icons Wire will release their new album Mind Hive on January 24 via the band's own pinkflag label. Wire have always managed to move forward while still sounding like themselves and that holds true for this album, too. Take "Primed and Ready," which seems to synthesize all eras of the band into one sleek beast, while continuing to look forward. That song premieres in this post and you can listen below.
Wire will be on tour in March, including two nights at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on 3/11 & 3/12 (tickets), and they'll wrap up their trek in Austin for SXSW. Updated tour dates are listed below.
