Fighting With Wire – New album out on NOW & new single ‘Didn’t Wanna Come Back Home’ released 12th November 2012

By on September 25, 2012

Northern Ireland’s Fighting With Wire are set to release their stunning new album ‘Colonel Blood’ on 24thSeptember 2012 through Xtra Mile Recordings followed by the driving rock anthem ‘Didn’t Wanna Come Back Home’ on 12th November 2012 through Xtra Mile Recordings.
‘Colonel Blood’ is the follow-up to their critically-acclaimed debut Man Vs Monster which earned the Derry-based trio international recognition. Recorded in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Foo Fighters, Danzig), the 11-song set is a straight-up rock record that delivers belting riffs, brutal rhythmic attacks and sing-along choruses. Lead guitarist and vocalist Cahir O’Doherty explains: “With this new record we really focused on the songs, we’re all influenced by early 90’s American rock so making this record we tried to give that 90’s sound a modern makeover. It was great working with Nick Raskulinecz in Nashville, he really got what we were trying to do and helped us make this record sound huge.”
