Wire have streamed their track Split Your Sides from their upcoming self-titled album.
The veteran outfit’s 13th title is released on April 13 via Pinkflag. It follows last month’s unveiling of single Joust & Jostle.
The’ve also announced that Karen Gwyer, Tomaga, Orlando, Boothroyd and Xaviers will be the support acts for their five-night residency at London’s Lexington next month, which forms part of a wider UK tour.
Singer Colin Newman says the band have resisted calls to reunite their classic lineup, saying: “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 is a one-way trip.”
