Wire: Tapping The Wire

Despite a few hiatuses and some changes in members, English rock band Wire has been influencing the music industry since 1976. Since their involvement with the punk and post-punk scenes, they have been steadily releasing forward-thinking, innovative music such as their most recent self-titled album. Wire is the group’s 13th studio album but the first to contain substantial contribution from guitarist Matthew Simms, who joined in 2012. You can see them live at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg on June 3, the Bowery Ballroom on June 4, and at Union Transfer on June 5.
