RETURNING to Belfast’s Stiff Kitten for the first time since 2008, Derry’s Fighting With Wire continue to impress. Stars of the Biffy Clyro bill at 2010’s Belsonic, this powerhouse three piece live act continue to tour relentlessly, chalking up appearances at Download Festival, Sonisphere & Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
The band signed a deal with Atlantic Records in 2008, and are currently working on the follow up to 2007’s epic “Man Vs. Monster” LP, which is expected in early 2011.
The brainchild of Derry native Cahir O’Doherty, FWW draw influences from bands like At The Drive In, Weezer & Fugazi.
Best described as gritty, angular pop-punk music, the band have remained a cornerstone of the Northern Irish music scene since their inception in 2003, and are acknowledged by many as the country’s premier musical export.
Fighting With Wire play The Stiff Kitten, Belfast, on Wednesday February 2nd. Support comes from Skip Moses, a new musical project from Lafaro’s Johnny Black. Doors open at 9pm and tickets are priced at £6.
Tickets for the original show in December that was postponed due to the bad weather remain valid for this show.
Tickets available now from Ticketmaster Outlets, The Kitten Bar, www.thestiffkitten.com and www.ticketmaster.ie.
