In spite of having toured extensively throughout the world with their brilliantly received “Red Bark Tree” album during the 1st half of 2011 Wire’s line-up of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis & Robert Grey, supplemented since May 2010 with live guitarist Matt Simms have recently announced their 2nd UK tour of the year. Twice as long and covering several cities where the band have not played since the 70’s, the November tour will see the band end the year with a flourish.

To accompany the tour Wire’s label Pinkflag will be releasing a live album (all formats) of a prestigious show from earlier in the year. The album will be available as exclusive tour merchandise during the tour and will only be released to shops once the tour is over.

Support on all dates will be provided by the highly acclaimed American duo Talk Normal who are just now putting the finishing touches to their debut album.
