After several incidents of disbanding and reuniting, Wire has announced the release of their self-entitled album along with the premiere of their new track, "Split Your Ends."

About Wire and Their New Album:

The band was formed back in 1976, and Wire will be their 13th album. The new album was written with an album release in mind, but had been performed on tour. It is full of pop melodies and 60's throwbacks. On the band, singer/songwriter Colin Newman says,
"The point where our personal narratives meet is all about change - moving on and keeping it interesting for ourselves. We're in it for the long haul and this a one-way trip."
