Track: Wire – The Art of Persistence



Legendary post-punks Wire have announced details of a new album, ‘10.20’, originally scheduled for record store day, is now out on June 19th via the bands own pink flaglabels.

Describing the tracks that make up the album as ‘strays’, they’ve released one of them as a taster – The Art of Persistence as a taster to the album. Previously it was only available on their long deleted EP ‘The Third Day as a rehearsal room run through, or the live version that appeared on legal bootleg album ‘Recycling Sherwood Forest’.

It’s spruced up onto a fully fledged indie rock number, with just enough melancholy and angst to keep you hanging onto its typically engaging melody.

It’s accompanied by a stills movie made up of shots taken at the bands show at Band on The Wall in Manchester on January 28th, 2020. The band encourage fans to donate to the Save Our Venues campaign, so that shows like this may continue to happen when venues are allowed to re-open. More information here.
