Wire Preps Fall N.A. Tour

 

Due over here in early Oct. for coast to coast dates.

In just a little over a
month from now, Britain’s
Wire will hit the North American shores for a two-week tour in support of their
latest album Object 47 (so named
because it’s the 47th title in the band’s long discography). Wire
will only be playing major markets, but what else is new for British outfits?
According to the band the record is “the second product of an arc of work began
in 2006 which has so far thrown up the rather well received EP, Read And
Burn 03
[from which no tracks appear] and stands as a confident statement of where Wire are in
2008.”

 

 

Fun side note: the band
wants us to remind you of its “idiosyncratic mix of an avant-garde mindset with
classic pop timing this album boasts ‘tunes with zoom’.”

 

We’re not sure what “tunes
with zoom” exactly are, but hey, we’re game! Read our recent exclusive
interview with Wire HERE.
