Wire Announce New Album 'Silver/Lead', Stream "Short Elevated Period"

Seminal UK post-punk band Wire have announced the release of their 15th studio album 'Silver/Lead'.

The follow-up to their 2016’s mini-LP Nocturnal Koreans will be out on March 31 through the band's own pinkflag label, and arrives on the 40th anniversary of their debut performance. This is the sound of a uniquely addictive 21st century psychedelic post-punk.

Colin Newman and Matt Simms' guitar work is alternately jagged and luminous, while bassist Graham Lewis's ear-catching lyrics are vivid yet oblique. Meanwhile, drummer Robert Grey provides a virtual masterclass in percussive minimalism. But it's how the various instruments mesh together that really counts. And Newman's production creates a sonic space in which even the smallest gesture is accorded some recognition.

The band have also shared the album's lead single "Short Elevated Period", self-described as “breakneck-paced guitar pop”.

Pre-order your copy the album here, check out thetracklsit and stream "Short Elevated Period" below.

Silver/Lead Tracklist:
01. Playing Harp For The Fishes
02. Short Elevated Period
03. Diamonds in Cups

"We’ve never liked repeating ourselves," she said. "Often we react to things we’ve just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It’s only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don’t know quite what to expect next.”All pre-orders come with an exclusive postcard set - all photographs taken by Alison - only available through their store during the pre-order period.

The duo have also aired the record's excellent first single "Anymore."
