PF17 CD 


In the five years since the May 2003 release of their last ful-length album, Send, Wire has expounded, reviewed, contracted, lain dormant, recovered, expanded, and shed an old skin and grown a new one. Wire is not the same as it was before--but then Wire is never the same as it was before...  Object 47 (the 47th object in their discography) is nonetheless only Wire's eleventh studio album. It is the second product of an arc of work that began in 2006 and has so far yielded the rather well-received EP Read And Burn 03 (from which no tracks appear on Object 47), and stands as a confident statement of where Wire is in 2008--as ever, looking forward! While retaining Wire's idiosyncratic mix of an avant-garde mindset with classic pop timing, this album boasts "tunes with zoom," a unique formula that somehow manages to sound wholly Wire (in a classic sense) and wholly contemporary.  Object 47 is available on CD and vinyl through conventional distribution and in a special vinyl edition via mail-order only. A full press campaign is planned in the USA and UK, augmented with college radio promotion in the USA. Additionally, Pink Flag is making available, well ahead of the album release, a free download of the track "One of Us" exclusively through pinkflag.com. Wire will play festivals throughout Europe and tour USA in October. Check pinkflag.com for details.  "The time is right for Wire, right now. Welcome them again, they've come back to save you." --Charles Inskip, Artrocker   "With Wire, it pays to expect the unexpected." --The Wire
