It's their 40th anniversary...

Wire are set to release new album 'Silver/Lead' on March 31st.

The band formed in the middle of punk's '77 explosion, but quickly began seeking out new, hitherto unexplored space.

Vastly influential, Wire's myriad adventures remain entirely inspiring, even after all this time.

Toasting their 40th anniversary, the band will release new album 'Silver/Lead' through their own pinkflag label.

As a preview Wire have shared new cut 'Short Elevated Period', and it's a deft fusion of the band's pop / Brutalist sides, a mixture of old and new that unsettles and provokes.

Tune in now.
