U.K-based Wire was an integral part in the development of post-punk in the late 1970’s. Over the years the band has released a dozen studio albums and last year’s Red Barked Tree was the band’s most popular and acclaimed record in years.
Now the band is set to release The Black Session: Paris 10 May 2011 on Feb. 7. The live album was recorded in front of thousands and was originally available exclusively on the band’s tour, but Wire wants to give fans who weren’t able to see them live this special keepsake.
The album features live performances of new songs off of Red Barked Trees, but also features hits from their catalogue including classics “Kidney Bingos,” “Map Ref 41°N 93°W” and “Two People In A Room.”
