We're hugely excited to bring you the new record from the legendary Wire. 'Change Becomes Us' is the band's thirteenth record since they started out with their debut 'Pink Flag' in 1977.

When we asked frontman Colin Newman to describe the record for us, he said:

Existing in a timewarp between 1980 & 2020, 'Change Becomes Us' fuses elements of undeveloped historic material with the current band's forward-looking soundworld.

Wire are playing the new album in its entirety at Heaven in London on Sunday March 24th ahead of the record's release on Monday March 25th. The show's encore will then be their classic song 'Pink Flag' featuring "the massed guitars of the Pink Flag orchestra".
