WIRE announce new album “Mind Hive” and live dates

 

WIRE have announced details of the band’s seventeenth album, ‘Mind Hive’, set for release on January 24th 2020 via the band’s own label pinkflag. ‘Mind Hive’ is the group’s first newly recorded material since 2017’s stellar ‘Silver/Lead’.

The first glimpse of ‘Mind Hive’ comes with lead single “Cactused” – one of ‘Mind Hive‘s resoundingly pop moments. Newman’s vocal is wide eyed and wired, with Lewis’ smooth backing vocals thickening the plot. Simms’ effects-heavy guitar work creates a bright web of noise, with the song’s stop/start moments providing a series of precise energy bursts.
The accompanying video uses footage shot for the forthcoming documentary, ‘People In A Film’ – more info here.
