Wire - Mind Hive

PINKFLAG

  • £18.99


Wire are one of the definitive post-punk groups. Since their inception in 1976, they’ve maintained a reputation for creating music that stretches the rock form whilst simultaneously editing it down to its essence. With their gift for crafting songs that perfectly balance experimentation and accessibility, they were recently hailed by the Quietus as "one of the most consistent British bands of all time". Yet they exhibit little inclination to look back or trade on past glories, rather they remain resolutely focused on producing music which is smart, vital and defiantly modern. 

Mind Hive is Wire’s first newly recorded material since 2017’s Silver/Lead, an album garnered rave reviews and career best sales. Yet, if Silver/Lead set the bar pretty high, Mind Hive seems to have no problem vaulting over it.

Mind Hive arrives at a time when Wire are being cited as an influence by yet another generation of bands. 2019 saw the reissue of their groundbreaking first three albums, Pink Flag, Missing Chairs and 154 and a career-spanning feature documentary, People in a Film, is due for release in 2020.
