Fighting With Wire are a fantastic success story from our very own shores.The 3 piece have recently signed a multiple album deal with Atlantic Records and are touring with their new album MAN VS MONSTER. They will be playing in Auntie Annies Porterhouse on Thursday 22nd January 2009! Tickets on sale from usual outlets now.
Debut album from Derry trio. Forty-five minutes of razor sharp riffs colliding full force with huge melodies. Recommended for fans of Jimmy Eat World, Foo Fighters, HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ and Biffy Clyro.
Fighting With Wire emerged from the ever creative Northern Ireland music scene in 2003, the brainchild of guitarist Cahir Oâ€™Doherty (Jetplane Landing / Clearshot) and drummer Craig McKean (Clearshot).
An idealistic bunch, theyâ€™ve since done what rock bands are meant to do: they wrote a bunch of songs, and took to the road. The last three years has seen them play shows with the likes of Reuben, Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Seafood, YCNI:M and Future Of The Left, racking up hundreds of miles and honing their live show into a ferocious explosion in the process.
After putting out a number of limited edition DIY singles, they took a breather at the end of 2006 and finally started work on their long-awaited debut album. Recorded in Northern Ireland and finally completed in mid-2007, Man Vs Monster is a dynamic beast of a record â€“ raging out of your speakers one moment yet gentle and intricate the next, and all without losing focus of whatâ€™s important: the song. Whatâ€™s next for Fighting With Wire? More touring and more songs, we would expect.
